Seymour Stein began his career as a clerk at Billboard, formed Sire Productions with Richard Gottehrer in 1966, and first hit the charts with "Hocus Pocus" by Focus in 1973. A prime mover in introducing punk and new wave to new audiences, Stein brought notable artists to the spotlight, including The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Pretenders, Madonna, Depeche Mode, and The Smiths. Stein continues to scout talent and nurture careers, as Sire's current roster includes SXSW veterans Tegan and Sara, Against Me!, Hot Hot Heat, and Regina Spektor.
