Alex Meixner Joins Music Publishers of America

Music Publishers of AmericaJanuary 14, 2015 –

Grammy-nominated musical artist Alex Meixner has joined Music Publishers of America, LLC (“MPA”) as Vice President, according to Steve Harris, MPA President. Meixner – a veteran composer, arranger and performer of a wide cross-section of musical genres – will have primary responsibility for MPA’s development activities, including expansion of the company’s current music publishing business into other genres and identifying and assisting in the acquisition of musical properties.

Meixner, a fourth generation professional musician, began his music career over three decades ago at age 6. Meixner now headlines at venues across the country and abroad. He builds upon his musical roots in the ethnic music of Europe with a blend of jazz, reggae, classical and folk music genres. Meixner is proficient in a number of instruments and also is an accomplished composer and arranger.

MPA’s mission is to publish, promote and preserve America’s culturally- and historically-significant music, according to Harris. One of the pearls of the company’s business is its complete library of Vitak-Elsnic music, which has dominated the American-European folk and ethnic music scene for decades. “Alex’s lifetime of experience in the music industry will boost our efforts to exploit MPA’s library of Vitak-Elsnic music,” Harris said. “Working with Alex, we’ll develop other outlets for this beautiful music, which is so much a part of our country’s musical heritage. Alex also will add tremendous value as we branch out into other genres and related businesses.”

In addition to his responsibilities with MPA, Meixner will continue his existing performance and other ventures.

heart shaped texasThe Alex Meixner Band’s Texas trip in February is starting to take shape. It is of course centered around the 3rd annual Fat Tuesday show at the Brauntex Theatre in New Braunfels on Tuesday, February 17. This is one of my favorite gigs of the year-as it’s a wonderful venue (great sound, atmosphere and of course the people of New Braunfels!!!). This year we have a great opening act in Porter Robinson and I look forward to doing some jamming with some friends for a great night. Get your tickets now as we’re all sure to have a great time!

Additionally, I’m super stoked to be playing the SPJST in Houston on Friday,  February 13 and the KJT Hall in Ennis on Saturday, February 14 for a Valentine’s Night event.
