Frisbie is a music production boutique. Founded in 2004 by Mary Frisbie Wood and headquartered in Tribeca, Frisbie is a creative nucleus for a select group of recording artists, bands and musicians. The company creates music for a cross section of platforms: records, film, television, commercials, apps and games. The loft houses a beautiful recording studio where individual artists, bands, brands and companies record everything from albums to commercials. Frisbie also represents these artists for licensing and music supervision. From their colorful, downtown loft space, Frisbie hosts live events in addition to curating a retail space that sells one-of-a-kind music equipment, vinyl albums among other rare treasures.
Wood built upon her history as a writer, producer and performer of creative and well-known ad campaigns to launch her new venture. Frisbie has worked closely with major brands including American Express, Coke, Pepsi, Sony, Aflac, Reebok, Pizza Hut,Monster.com and The Gap while collaborating with a diverse roster of artists and producers to create music for specific ads from beat-makers best known for their work with Dr. Dre, Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan and Levon Helm), Pat Sansone (Wilco), John Spencer (Blues Explosion, Heavy Trash, Bosshog) and others.
Frisbie has a busy fall forging new partnerships with music supervisor Gary Calamar (True Blood, Six Feet Under, Dexter), a new hip-hop collective featuring Brandun Deshay (formerly of Odd Future), artists Phony Ppl and DJ Leggo plus special projects with producer Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Regina Spektor). The company just completed SuperBowl ads for General Electric, Budweiser and a Budweiser Platinum ad for producer Steve Stout’s “Translation.”

Frisbie works with composers PT Walkley and Scott Hollingsworth and sound designer Sachar Mathias for the top- rated kids show “Team Umizoomi” on Nick Jr. Frisbie is responsible for scoring and writing the spunky punk rock songs that address themes from counting, numbers, and shapes to anti-bullying. Recently, the company has worked with MtvU handling all of the music for their rebranding campaign. Woods also co-wrote and performed the theme for the PBS program Dragon Tales.
Apps and Games
Other recent work includes the popular iTunes app “The Adventures of Timmy: Run Kitty Run” which features original music and sound design by Frisbie and was part of the recent Obama anti-bullying campaign. The app received a 2012 Webby Award in the “People’s Choice/ Games Handheld” devices category.
Fun Machine Events:
In addition Frisbie has begun to host a monthly event series called “Fun Machine”. These parties pair a street artist with a musician to create mural themed one of a kind mural, which will populate the store’s main space for the following month. October’s “Fun Machine” event in October will be announced soon.
