Kia ora, hey you there... yes you.
You are wonderful and the world needs people like you.
Before you read on, please note the following... we are here to help you to get set up, to Review-Refine and Release with you for your creative project. If we had a definite #1 formula, we would be retired by now. :)
A Publicist IS - an advice line - a friend (aunty) - a strategist - a database connector - a voice on your behalf - a gatherer of information - an idea generator - a systems executor - and also we sit in between you and the media and work super hard to help you get heard faster. We can get you heard faster! This is what we definitely do.
Our aim is that you leave us with a clear path forward and feel empowered as to how this stuff all works.
A Publicist IS NOT - a magician who can influence everyone in the industry - able to sit on the phone every night and day and hound them to play you music or go to your event - telepathic about what you are doing with your music and please remember, we are not trying to ruin your career by 'not doing things'.
We actually give a sh*t about your career and you as a creative - we are creatives too!
Unfortunately, we do not know what the end game will be, we are here to help you get the best out of your project, we are also super reasonable $$ wise and if you are kind to us, we always throw in more of our hearts.
The difference between us and other promotion companies is we are totally transparent in what we do, when we do it and the results we get. We do not charge for initial meetings or helping with strategy or advice. We will let you know who has play listed your tune, how many hours we spent on the website and the next steps, but please be patient, this can take time as all media get hounded in out little island nation.

We always do more as we are proud of our clients and what they do!
