Online & Print PR

What is public relations:

Public relations (PR) is the business of disseminating information to increase public awareness and interest in your project. Publicity is not that quarter page ad you bought in CMJ. That’s advertising. You do not buy publicity. Increased public interest and awareness comes about through features, interviews, reviews, previews, articles and anything else that attracts people to you or your product. The record review and online post is a highly regarded, small victory that when acquired in quantity or quality can really help build a band or artist’s reputation.

What do we do:

We provide our clients the ability to reach online publishers of magazines, newspapers, free weeklies, websites, blogs, podcasts, and online radio, and utilize our relationships to get their projects heard and written about. We utilize technology to allow publishers the ability to listen, learn, and post about a project. Our goal is to get your music heard by publishers, and ultimately written about, played, and posted online. It doesn’t matter if you’re an established artist, you’re working on your first album, or just recorded your first song in your bedroom – we can find a way to help!

Who do we contact?

We focus on editors, freelancers, and online publishers, of course. We work with online press, podcasters, online radio outlets, independent blog publishers, and anyone that uses any UGC site, like myspace, facebook, Livejournal, etc.

Media Buying:

We create a custom ad placement campaign for any budget level, and for any type of project. From music blogs, to networking and news sites, we can customize a cost effective, focused and targeted online media buying program.


Through our growing number of placement opportunities, we can put music where people hear it most. The possibilities are endless!

Tour PR:

Four to six weeks ahead of a tour-date we alert the media in the town/city that an artist is performing and supply them with everything they need to cover the event. We build hype along the route of the tour. We follow up, keep in touch, and invite local press to check out your show. We put your tour on the radar.

Whether you’re looking for something simple to get the word out about a current project or a complete website, we’ll work with you to create online content that realizes your vision.
