Woody Jarrett produces and manages bands and other types of musical acts.
Woody has been extremely fortunate to have experienced many aspects of the music industry as a stagehand, a roadie, an engineer/producer, a performer, a college-level instructor, a rep for a major record label, and a national account manager for a large musical instrument manufacturer. He can honestly say, nothing has been as fulfilling as what he does now, and he is excited for each new and exciting challenge!
He loves helping to change people's lives while working in the music industry. It is truly his dream job. Woody came from a very large company, which had a lot of positive attributes, but where it always seemed difficult to truly create change. Now he is able to effect change on a regular basis.
On his time off, Woody's favorite thing to do is making music!
