Rob Woodie

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Rob Woodie grew up in a musical household with a strong background in Gospel Music. His father (Robert V. Woodie) was an organist and former Minister of Music at Kennerly Temple Church of God In Christ in St. Louis. His brother (Chris "Butch" Woodie) is a well-respected organist around the country. By the age of 5, Rob was playing drums for the church radio choir.

Over the years, his musical vocabulary expanded by listening and studying other genres of music like Jazz, Soul, Latin and Country music. Learning these styles of music would help open the door to many opportunities in the future.

By the time he was a teenager, he was one of the most sought after drummers in the city playing for several gospel artists like The O'neal Twins and many others. Around that same time, Rob appeared on the BET Bobby Jones Gospel Show playing for Tyscot Artist Denise Tichenor.

Since then, Rob Woodie has been blessed to work with several artists and musicians in all genres of music including Michael McDonald, The Clark Sisters, Kim Burrell, BeBe Winans, Marvin Winans, Shirley Ceasar, Nao Yoshioka, Korean Soul and many more. Rob has also toured all over the United States as well as several other countries around the world including Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein and Japan.

Rob is currently a board member and drummer at MeTooMusic, a production company headed by producer Levi "Too" King that has produced several acclaimed gospel artists such as Meaghan Williams, The Walls Group, God's Chosen, Christina Bell, Raytina Robinson, Kai Pineda, Jusin Shaw, Dwayne Woods, Chrystal Rucker, Tobbi and Tommi and G.I. (God's Image) to name a few.

Rob is also tours and has recorded several albums with International Soul Singer Brian Owens and the Deacons of Soul who just completed their third Japanese tour performing at venues like The Blue Note Tokyo, The Blue Note Nagoya and the Dojima River Forum in Osaka.
