STRONG MEDIA RELATIONSHIPS BRING RESULTS in Nashville & The Poconos, PA at the world’s hub of top media outlets. Scoring repeat impressions at radio greatly supports efforts to sell. Millions of people have heard–and heard about—The Press Office’s clients on SIRIUS XM Radio Networks, Jones Radio Network, ABC Radio, Westwood One Radio Networks, Sony Radio Networks, Premiere Radio Networks, MJI Broadcasting, CNN, CBS, NBC, NPR, AP Radio, United Stations Radio Networks, and Launch Radio. And..we’ve also produced, written and edited syndicated radio specials for CBS Records, BNA/BMG, Epic Records, Arista Records, RCA Records, The Beach Boys, and many others. Sample: The Gotta Drive interview show with Garth Brooks and Steve Wariner on Arista Records/BMI.
Helping sell hard tickets to our clients’ concerts is one of our chief concerns.
Working six weeks in advance, we support each date by blanketing all relevant media within a 100-mile radius (or more) of the venue. And we don’t just send out news releases and press kits–we follow up with phone calls aggressively pursuing features, covers and reviews on each date.
Our tour press is supported by state-of-the-art database technology and a corps of veteran, media-savvy publicists. It is worth noting that when our efforts sell just 15 extra tickets per date, our fee is covered!
Over the years we have either launched or help establish and develop the careers of Rock, Country, Folk and Bluegrass artists including: Ralph Stanley, The Clash, Aaron Tippin, Alabama, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Jesse Winchester,Clint Black, Lorrie Morgan, Karla Bonoff, Steve Wariner, Roy Rogers, Little Feat, Phil Vassar, Pam Tillis, Hippiefest Tour, and Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone.
