What is the Planetary Group?

Founded in 1996 by Chris Davies and Adam Lewis, The Planetary Group is an artist development firm that specializes in publicity and radio promotion. Planetary will tailor a campaign, based around an artist’s goals, that targets the most appropriate outlets for a release. Headquartered in Los Angeles with a satellite office in Boston, Planetary has its finger on the pulse of the current music scene.

Over the past nine years Planetary has worked with a variety of musicians from all genres, signed and unsigned, self-released, indie and major labels. Planetary can help to create a solid foundation for new artists, and take all artists to new levels. You can see a list of our clients in the radio and publicity sections of this site.

The radio department structures a campaign that targets college radio, AAA, non-commercial and commercial-specialty shows. The stations are solicited for airplay and feedback regarding the release. In addition, radio interviews and in-studio performances are coordinated in touring markets wherever possible. Planetary’s radio and tour support can provide the necessary groundwork that would ensure advance exposure in your pending tour markets.

In addition to airplay, increased public interest and awareness comes about through features, interviews, reviews, previews, and anything else that attracts people in print or on screen. The Publicity side of Planetary offers national press campaigns for record releases, tour press to alert local media to shows, and a smaller tastemaker publication/zine oriented campaign dubbed “Unearthed”. Planetary publicity focuses on print and online media, though NPR, late night television shows, and other applicable television and syndicated radio outlets are serviced. Planetary publicity provides a network for music to be heard via their working relationships with writers. Planetary strives to get your music listened to, and then facilitates the writers’ work by providing what they need to cover the music.

The Planetary Group will put your band on the radar.
