Mary Frisbie* Wood, founder and owner of Frisbie, was referred to as "the legendary Mary Wood" in a music article by Time Magazine in 2012.
The A-list of artists she's written for and produced (face to face) in the studio include: Aretha Franklin, Britney Spears, Dre's Aftermath camp, Jordan Sparks, Isaac Hayes, Kiss, Faith Hill, Miss Piggy, Jessica Simpson, The Spice Girls and more.
She is currently co-producing an album for Benji Hughes, who received 4 stars in Rolling Stone for his 2008 release, "A Love Extreme".
She is also co-writing the music for the hit show, Team Umizoomi. Her current commercial hits have been for Wendy's My 99, McDonald's, GE, 3M, and more.
Her sound first infiltrated pop culture when she co-wrote and sang a jingle for Pepsi that became a Platinum Album hit for the Spice Girls. While Atlantic and Geffen records, producers Glen Ballard (Alanis Morrisette Jagged Little Pill, Michael Jackson, Thriller) and The Butcher Brothers (John Lennon, Lauryn Hill) produced her songs and pursued her to make albums, Wood (with partner Clifford Lane) dominated and redefined what a contemporary jingle sounded like. With simultaneous hit campaigns for Coke and Pepsi on the air, songs for Sony and Amex hitting the Billboard charts, singing and co-writing the theme and all songs for the # 1 kid's show, DragonTales, it became apparent that Wood was no one hit wonder.
In 1999, Wood was bestowed the honor of being Joey Levine's first and only partner at Crushing Music.
Wood opened Frisbie in 2004, which continues to redefine what people think of as a music company today. (See Frisbie bio).
Other media she's written and performed for include: Pepsi, Coke, Amex, 7-Up, Dr Pepper, Reebok, Sprite, Team Umizoomi, Sony, Dragon Tales theme song and other songs, AT&T, GE, Mountain Dew,
