About Judy Stakee

I believe in the new age of music. You, as a songwriter and artist, can carve out your own path to success. Your perspective is something to be celebrated. 

With over 30 years of experience as an executive in the music industry, I'll equip you with the insight and tools to fully develop your career. As Senior Vice President of Creative at Warner Chappell Music for 20 years, I signed and worked closely with many of today's most acclaimed artists: Grammy-award winner Sheryl Crow, Katy Perry, Michelle Branch, Gavin DeGrawJewel and Joy Williams of The Civil Wars, among many others. My experience with developing producers and multi-platinum songwriters (John Shanks, Wayne Kirkpatrick, Scott Cutler, Anne Previn, Kevin Kadish, Franne GoldeJamie Houston, Matthew Gerrard, Robie Nevil, Tim James and Ben Glover) helms across all areas of the industry.

I'm a true champion of the songwriter who recognises talent with both my ears and eyes.
