It starts with the artist defining their brand, refining their music skills, creating content and sharing their story.

WENDEE artists will have the opportunity to appear on The Voice, America’s Got Talent, American Idol, regional, national and international tours, corporate/brand funded events, and to license their music for TV shows (traditional broadcast, streaming…), feature films, commercials and more.
