What Indie Publicity Is &
What We Do

Indie Music Publicity is the act of getting newer, unsigned, and signed-to-indie-label musicians into the media: blogs, playlists, influencers, and podcasts. We reach out to and build relationships with the media leveraging unique avenues such as social media to net you guaranteed features. Repeated exposure in the media builds real fans over time. We believe in the 1000 True Fans Model: With 1k dedicated fans, you can sustain yourself with your music. We work to get you there from the moment you sign on.


Our Relationships Move Your Music
We are always building relationships with bloggers and podcasters to get you featured fast
Media Pitching At It's Finest
We also reach out cold to open new avenues, using social media to open us up to infintely more opportunities

Three Ways To Succeed

Single Publicity Campaign (One-Off)

Guaranteed features = guaranteed results x exposure. With one campaign promoting one single or release, you'll gain something real to show booking agents, A&R, managers, any industry gatekeeper. You can even expect your bookings to increase.

Monthly Subscription/Retainer

When you take us on board full time, we handle every thing you need to have together to make a successful campaign. You'll have us on hand for every release, creating new pitches and press releases. You'll get the full benefit of our expertise. In the retainer option, the perks of the campaign option carry over, but we're also slowly and steadily building you new fans through repeated exposure.

Money Saver: Pay-Per-Feature

With pa-per-feature, you can go one feature at a time to slowly build your online profile, as promotion budget becomes available.
