Our publicity team did a tremendous job getting the word out! We promoted over 40 shows this year, got one of our artists their own video premiere on Magnet, and collected artist reviews from publications like Goldmine, Rootstime, Cashbox, FAME, Aquarian Weekly, and more. Here are just a few:

  • Reed Turner: “Utterly Outstanding 4.5/5 stars” (Maverick Country )
  • Amy Fairchild: “If this stone-cold roots-pop beauty doesn’t catch on, it’s everybody’s else’s fault…” (Goldmine)
  • Brothers Keeper: “Todd Meadows is an album to be explored and savored as its textures and layers provide an ever changing listening experience.” (Cashbox)
  • Madison King: “Onward & Upward has ‘radio’ and ‘charts’ written all over it, every single cut…” (FAME)

2015 is shaping up to be another great year. If you’ve got new music coming out, let us know! We’d love to help your music reach an even wider audience!
