Julie Greenwald

The Music Business Association (Music Biz) will welcome Chairman and COO of The Atlantic Records Group Julie Greenwald, to keynote the second annual Music’s Leading Ladies Speak Out session, powered by Nielsen Music, on Tuesday, May 16 at 4 p.m. CT during the Music Biz 2017 convention at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville.

Erin Crawford, Sr. VP and GM of Nielsen Music will make a presentation, followed by Greenwald’s chat with NPR Music’s Ann Powers, focusing on a theme of creative partnerships, stories of how Greenwald’s often maternal instincts helped her nurture careers of artists including Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Christina Perri, Janelle Monáe, Twenty One Pilots, Sturgill Simpson, Coldplay, Paramore, Rob Thomas, James Blunt, Jason Mraz, Death Cab for Cutie, Fun, Trey Songz, Flo Rida, and Wiz Khalifa. The conversation will also illuminate how she achieved her success in a male-dominated business, as well as her views and approach on the many issues around work/life balance.

“Julie is a true music industry innovator, and has always remained on top of the latest trends and taken advantage of technological advances to rebuild two of the most iconic brands in music: Atlantic Records and previously Island Records,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “She is the perfect keynoter for Music’s Leading Ladies, which we are thrilled to bring back for a second year after the overwhelming response to our debut outing last year. We look forward to hearing Julie’s insights that we know will inform, entertain, and inspire our the audience.”

Last year’s inaugural Music’s Leading Ladies Speak Out session featured Vivien Lewit of YouTube, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, and songwriters the Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose), who wrote Little Big Town’s smash “Girl Crush.”
