“This mysterious and beautiful music by Alessandro Stefana entrances me. Its fragility and tenderness bring comfort and understanding. It reflects the unique sensitivity of its creator, who has drawn on his experience to bring this profoundly moving, and life affirming record to the world," says executive producer Polly Jean Harvey.

According to Wikipedia:
In recorded music, record labels distinguish between an executive producer and a record producer. The executive producer is responsible for business decisions and more recently, organizing the recordings along with the music producer, whereas the record producer makes the music.

But frankly every website I looked at had a different definition, so who knows!

this is what i found:

Quote:
Producers focus more on the development of music, spending time with the musicians to refine their sound. Executive music producers, however, find the funding for the project and build the financial and talent acquisition procedures of the recording company or production.




Quote:
Music Producers
During recording sessions or rehearsals, artists are led by the sound expertise of music producers. These professionals may also work with orchestras and bands for stage productions. One of their main tasks is to arrange original musical compositions and musical scores, including harmonies and tones, by using their knowledge of music theory. They also assist artists with their vocal and instrumental arrangements to make them competitive within their genre. This means balancing melody and gauging the volume of the performers. Choosing the sound studio and sound engineer to make an album is often a part of their duties, as well.

Job responsibilities of a music producer include:

Auditioning artists to decide whether or not to work with them or give them a part in a stage production
Utilizing synthesizers and computers to arrange music
Setting up audio equipment
Dealing with artist and studio contracts




Quote:
Executive Music Producers
These professionals are hired by recording companies or work independently for their own business, and part of their job is to find or provide the financial backing for a musical project. Overall, they help design a content strategy for the company, determining how and where to find new talent. They also study music trends and try to bring in talent that can positively influence these trends and make a lasting impact on the music industry. For artists, executive producers schedule recording time for them to work in a studio and develop an album. They also help market new songs and records and take commission from sales.

Job responsibilities of an executive music producer include:

Supervising the production of music videos
Managing a production project budget
Keeping the production of an album on track
Helping artists build their brand and expand their product lines to include clothing and other goods





PJ has been a producer too; back in 2001 she was the producer and mixer of Tiffany Anders' "happy cry funny gift":
