Who We Are
Wendy's interest in music
started at age six when she begged her mother to buy her the soundtrack to the film “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. Her older sister heard her playing the Bee Gee’s version, took the cassette from her, and introduced her to The Beatles. Wendy’s life was never the same again.
Throughout Wendy’s career she has embraced both the creative and the administrative sides of the music business. Through college she worked at Studio Instrument Rentals and was the backup singer in a band (called EVERYTHING) that had much success on the Sunset Strip. (CD’s available upon request.) Wendy graduated from CSUN with a BS in Business Administration with a specialization in Marketing.
Her career began
as the assistant to the President of Interscope Music Publishing. From there, she held increasingly senior roles at major record labels including Priority Records, where she became an expert in licensing hip/hop and sample clearance, and Universal Music Group, where she licensed a multitude of iconic albums and soundtracks, major publishers including MCA Music Publishing, and even several successful music libraries including Music Supervisor, Inc. and MasterSource, where she successfully placed numerous songs in films and TV shows.
In 2006, Wendy formed Super Music Services and has since enjoyed doing Music Supervision and Clearance and Licensing for all forms of media. Most recently, Wendy contracted with Dick Clark Productions to clear and license all the music for Dick Clark Productions, including “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Billboard Music Awards,” and “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” Wendy has also been the music supervisor on more than ten feature films, including “For The Love Of Money” (Lionsgate) and “Stay Cool” (Initiate Productions).
Wendy is both extremely creative and incredibly resourceful.
She is moved by music, addicted to film and television, and obsessive about the detail-oriented world of music clearance. Wendy can choose the perfect song for a scene and clear and license it with equal genius. She is also strangely excited by a well-crafted spreadsheet. Wendy’s knowledge, experience and relationships are vast and continually evolving, right alongside the changing face of the entertainment industry.
