Johnny Garcia’s Busy At Play Publishing Signs JoLivi

Hawaiian singer/songwriter JoLivi has signed an exclusive publishing deal with Busy at Play Publishing, Inc. JoLivi has also tapped the founder of Busy at Play Publishing, Inc., Johnny Garcia as her new producer. Garcia who is Trisha Yearwood’s longtime Music Director and Garth Brooks’ lead guitarist, has celebrated songwriting cuts with Jason Aldean, Brett Eldredge, Trace Adkins, Parmalee and more.

“Jolivi Pedersen is an amazing, soulful and beautiful woman blessed with a voice,” says Garcia. “Nashville has patiently waited since the decade of the 90’s, that was dominated by amazing female artists, for another timeless and soulful female to take to the airwaves. Honored to be her producer and publisher– this gonna be good, so good. Stay tuned!”
