MUSIC PR AND MEDIA RELATIONS
We can get your music in the press, on TV, or aired on the radio
Since 1996 Quite Great have offered music promotion services for unsigned and independent artists, as well as labels. We have a history that ranges from legendary artists to developing acts, and it is this history we hope helps you to understand if we are the right team for you. A team that offers professional integrity, weekly reports, your media insights taken into account and embraced rather than ignored , and the chance to work with a friendly, caring group of promotions experts, overseen by an individual who runs the business who has overseen pr at major labels from Zomba, Polydor, MCA and imprints like Geffen, Uptown, Motown, The Really Useful Group, Fiction and many more.
Over more than two decades, the methodology of plugging music on the radio and helping bands into the charts, or signed to major labels has changed dramatically and again it is our history and the ability for us to adapt quickly that has seen Quite Great embrace broadcast outlets from mainstream radio to podcasts, student media and online radio. In the past the ability to get music in front of the right producers, the correct journalists or TV producers was relatively straight forward. You’d build relations and you discuss the stage your artist is at, and then gently build media focus. Nowadays it seems everyone is an expert on music promotion as they have access to blogs and a huge amount of sometimes pointless advice about how to use the likes of Soundcloud, ReverbNation…Twitter…Facebook…etc. Hence everyone knows how to promote music, don’t they? Well no not really.
Just think how many successful and I mean truly successful acts have come from nowhere without a real professional team of radio pluggers, TV pluggers, online promo guys and good old print press, and the answer is next to none. Hence why we created the full in house promotion service under our Quite Great Label Services brand, helping acts not only set up their distribution but to focus on promoting under one uniform structure.
You might think you understand a lot methods to promote your music , but you cannot beat the years of experience working with the likes of Meatloaf through to The Wildhearts, Russell Watson to Stevie Wonder, Taj Mahal to Van Morrison and Faith no More to Nickelback, experience that helps us to act as a home for your music and a hard working team ethic that has long standing relations with a huge number of media outlets and therefore helps you to be introduced to those we agree when we structure your campaign , in a way where those media outlets will appreciate you are working with a company that they regularly interact with , which will help you get noticed.
Everyday our in-house radio pluggers are communicating with online and local radio stations, gaining first stage playlists that act as a stepping stone for bands from around the world, aiming to promote music at a price that allows them to grow. That is the aspect of promotion that has changed and confuses many bands.
Now with so many services out there offering to get your music played, all you have to do is pay a small amount and you will end up getting basically a lottery result in return, there must be no confusion between companies that employ teams of people to create personal contact with producers, journalist etc and those that some may see as ‘roll-of-the-dice’ services.
Our music promo team know their contacts, understand what they need and the stresses they find themselves under, they know when to go hard and they know when to tread softly. Music promotion is all about stepping stones, building momentum with a unified team behind you, if you have this, then the media will be more likely to get on board and hence your fan base will grow.
