Simply put our task is to spread the word about an artist and their music to media, radio, music industry professionals and music lovers. Our job is to get reviews, features, interviews, radio airplay, and social media buzz. While working with a client, we act as advisers, mentors, and consultants on most promotional issues.

We work new music projects in these genres – blues, rock/blues, roots, Americana, folk, and funk/soul/R&B.

We present the music to chart reporters in the hope of placing on such charts as the Living Blues, Roots Music Report, Folk-DJ, Jamband, and Alternate Root charts.

We work with an extensive media and radio list that reaches around the globe as well as a significant list of music industry professionals. We are working social media every day and continue to build up our presence on Facebook, Twitter, Storify and SoundCloud. We place each client’s music on our password-protected digital platform in addition to mailing out physical product to maximize exposure.

Most of our campaigns are customized. However we do have a blues/roots targeted campaign for $3,275 all inclusive. More information can be obtained by emailing us at

We also have additional promotional opportunities for our clients, including our sampler CD Blind Raccoon Collection, inclusion in our showcases, nomination promotions, Rocky’s Jukebox playlists, to name just a few.
