About Our Founder, Woodie Stevenson
Pilot Music Business Services officially opened in 1998 in New York City. Founded by Woodie Stevenson, our company offered a lifetime of experience from day one. This is all thanks to a musical journey that began with Woodie as a child musician and performer.
Woodie's "industry experience" developed at first through family, as two of Woodie's relatives are prominent rock/pop music producers. Woodie spent much of her young adult years backstage or sitting in on sessions with superstars, including Jimmy Hendrix, Alice Cooper, KISS, Hall and Oates, and Steve Perry.
As an active contributor to the Music Licensing Industry, Woodie writes articles, is a panelist and speaks at Licensing Industry Synchronization conferences.
