Music has always been a part of Julie Kubacki’s life. Growing up in a family of classica musicians, Julie was accepted to Syracuse University on cello scholarship and graduated from VPA’s Music Industry program with the class of 2000. She stayed with her classical music roots during her time at SU completing internships with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Cassatt String Quartet.
After moving to New York City upon graduation, the constant networking with Syracuse alums at Warner Music Group paid off when she was hired at Atlantic Records in the Promotion department. For the next decade, she worked her way up in promotion at Atlantic as the Mid-Atlantic Promotion Manager out of Washington DC and then spent her last 8 years at Atlantic as the Northeast Promotion Manager out of the national Atlantic office in New York City. During her time at Atlantic she played an integral role in the promotion strategies that shaped the careers of Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, T.I., P. Diddy, Sean Paul, Flo Rida, Death Cab for Cutie, Shinedown, and more.
Looking to expand her career in 2015, she accepted the position of Senior Director of Artist Promotion & Development at Island Records. Her time at Island was spent on the teams responsible for developing the careers of Shawn Mendes and Tove Lo and taking Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, and Fall Out Boy to the next level.
At the end of 2018, 300 Entertainment began expanding their promotion department and hired Julie as the Vice President of Promotion. Joining a smaller team at an independent label allows the necessary time to architect an individual plan for each artist that starts with proper artist development. 300 was named the #1 independent label in both 2019 and 2020 and Julie along with the amazing promotion team at 300 continue to develop artists like Megan Thee Stallion (3 time Grammy winner this year including Best New Artist), Young Thug & Highly Suspect.
