Attorney Ann A HullAnn A Hull
Prior to becoming an attorney, Ann A. Hull spent thirty years in Hollywood’s entertainment business. Recruited as a young teen, Hull came to Los Angeles in 1976, to perform with the legendary all-girl band, The Runaways. While Hull rejected the opportunity to perform with The Runaways due to the band manager’s (now well-documented) taste for sex with minors, Hull remained in Los Angeles and formed one of the first female-owned record companies. One of her first signings was The Rock City Angels, whose guitarist was Johnny Depp. Hull also appeared on MTV, VH1, and had the midnight to 6:00 a.m. on-air shift at KROQ.
