Juli Newton Griffith Named President Of Play It Again Music Publishing

Juli Newton Griffith has been named President of Play It Again (PIA) Publishing. In her new role, Griffith will oversee all Play It Again Publishing operations as well as strategically pitch and lead the catalog management of PIA songwriters Kyle Fishman, Houston Phillips, Trea Landon and Taylor Acorn. Additionally, Griffith will oversee Dallas Davidson’s copyrights and co-writes.

Griffith most recently served as VP of Magic Mustang Music, joining the company at its inception in 2003. Under Griffith’s direction, Magic Mustang Music was named SESAC’s Publisher of the Year for three consecutive years (2013-2015).

“I spent 24 years in this business working for independent songwriters and entrepreneurs like Stewart Harris, David Corlew and Benny Brown. I’ve always been running a little on the outlaw spirit so the transition into Dallas Davidson’s company makes perfect sense for me. He is a master songwriter, an amazing businessman and has built a company where songwriters come first. We are going to be making some big waves and I am honored to be a part of it!” says Griffith.

“Juli Newton Griffith is a massive addition to Play It Again. She brings an insight into this business that cannot be taught. Juli knows how to lead, inspire and develop writers while helping them reach their maximum potential. I’ve known her passion for music for many years and she is a true songwriters’ champion. The future is bright at Play It Again and I’m extremely excited for our writers,” says Davidson.

Griffith’s position is effective immediately. She can be reached at [email protected].
