Julia Keefe, a Belmont graduate with a degree in Business Administration in Music Business, will serve as head of A&R at Edgehill Music Publishing.
Keefe joins the publishing group with a wealth of experience from her previous post as creative director at Altadena, a publishing, label and artist development company formed by renowned multi-genre hitmaker, busbee.
Born and raised in Nashville, Keefe began her professional career while still in school at Belmont. From intern to creative coordinator to creative director, Keefe spent three years working for Altadena in various roles with artists such as Carly Pearce, Ryan Griffin, Lindsey Lomis, Carter Faith, Riley Roth and many more between Nashville and Los Angeles.
“We are so excited to welcome such an experienced professional to our team,” said Edgehill CEO and Founder Josh Joseph. “As a Nashville native, Julia demonstrates every day that working within the music industry is her blood. With her extensive professional experience and fresh perspective, Julia has already contributed so much to shape the future of our publishing company.”
Alongside leading A&R efforts, Keefe is strategizing new creative projects for Edgehill writers in Nashville and Los Angeles.
“As a family-owned business, Edgehill takes pride in not only hiring the best of the best, but providing our roster with a support system that enables them to grow to their full potential,” said Edgehill COO and Founder Tara Joseph. “With her versatile creative background, there is truly no one better than Julia to have by our writers’ side for every step of the way.”
In addition to Edgehill’s current roster, the company recently formed a joint venture with newly-relaunched Boom, led by Joe Fisher, Keith Urban and Shaina Botwin, and signed Erin Kinsey. Keefe will work directly with Boom’s team on Erin Kinsey’s project.
