A long term view on music campaign development for indie artists is always key, as it is essential to remember that building success in the music industry takes many months. For impactful indie pr campaigns to really take shape you will need tours, national radio, tv plugging - we can offer first stage development in each of these areas that are key to music marketing growth.
But short term impact is definitely possible with creative pr thinking and a close working understanding between our indie pr agency members and the key members in the label responsible for the band as well as the band members itself.
If you are an established indie music artist or are already signed with a major label or indie label and are looking at a long term six to twelve month strategy then please contact us regarding our full-service campaigns here.

It was hailed by many leading publications as "chart history" and signalled for some as a true sign that the digital age was truly with us. But was this a real victory for the underground and unsigned bands or little more than an elaborate PR stunt by those alchemists that made Sandi Thom an overnight star.
Koopa have been around for a long time and "Blag Steal & Borrow" is not their first bid at chart success. Last summer they released the World Cup Song "Stand Up 4 England" through Fullfill, a distribution company which also trades as Artful Records and has previously worked major releases by Ray Charles, Gary Numan and last years Mercury Music Prize nominated album "Beloved One" by Lou Rhodes as well as Koopa's debut single "No Trend" in Nov 2005.
When the two singles failed to chart they turned to Quite Great PR who had previously broke the Sandi Thom story of alleged webcasts from a dingy basement in Tooting, something that bloggers were able to dispute by the fact that web tracking services such as Technorati showing there was little interest in her website until the story broke nationally. According to Koopa's official website the next release after taking on Quite Great PR, the "Three In A Bed With Bobby George" EP sold 3000 copies in over two weeks.
With Official Chart Rules changing to allow downloads releases to be included in the charts without a physical release a flurry of back catalogue releases were expected to chart but only Snow Patrol, Gnarls Barkley and The Automatic re-entered the UK Top 40 in the first week of 2007. With no real story to grab on to - I mean where were the 20 Beatles singles or Elvis heading to number one the general public had been lead to believe would happen with these new rules - it's easy to see why the media were so keen to latch onto the "first UK unsigned band to benefit from the new chart rules" story after Koopa entered the midweek charts at number 17. By the time a handful of websites had run the story, syndicated it to a few hundred more, it was the talk of national radio and tv chat shows as well as respected news sources, even though figures throughout the week suggested the release was in danger of dropping off the chart all together.
