About Stephen


Mr. Aristei’s expertise in songs and music publishing garnered him the position of General Manager of the 2nd largest music publishing company in the world, Warner Bros. Music, a company whose management he participated in for over 12 years. While at Warner Bros. Music he created the position of “Film Music Liaison” to stimulate cooperative communication between the film company and the music publisher. This enabled the music publisher the opportunity to participate and influence the selection and hiring of composers, lyricists, songs and the over all use of music in the Warner Bros. Pictures film and TV productions. He participated in the research, music/song selection and licensing (music supervision), as well as the implementation of promotional campaigns for over 50 major motion picture scores and soundtracks. Through his international affiliate offices, he helped coordinate the promotional and marketing “team effort” of the Warner Bros. film, record and music companies in the international/territorial release of over thirty-five soundtrack albums. Throughout his career, he has managed and advised gold and platinum selling songwriters ( Richard and Donald Addrisi, Jimmy Petrick, Frankie Sullivan, Emit Rhodes), recording artists (Addrisi Bros.
