“We’ve nurtured relationships with hundreds of radio stations across the country,” explains founder David Avery. “Those relationships build trust, so that when we reach out with new music, they’re excited to hear what we’ve got to share.” Those relationships have helped propel hundreds of artists onto important radio charts published by CMJ, FMQB, Americana Music Association, Relix/Jambands.com, JazzWeek and Roots Music Report.
“I can not imagine not having Powderfinger as part of the moe.team,” says John Topper, Moe.’s manager. “Their insight, advice, effort they have given to our projects over the last 15 years has helped us immensely.” Powderfinger’s reach isn’t limited to radio. Publicity and tour support play a strong role in helping bands achieve their professional goals.
“We help drive fans to your shows, generate meaningful press coverage, and keep your online platforms up-to-date and engaging,” says Melissa Ziegler, Powderfinger’s Head of Publicity. The team at Powderfinger Promotions wants to share this milestone.
