Lydia Laws PR
Getting you and your music noticed
As a boutique PR & Communications agency specialising in the
electronic music world, I offer artists, labels and event brands an elite personalised service
pitching to worldwide print, online and broadcast media. Because I work
with artists and projects I can be passionate about, I’ve developed valuable relationships with
media contacts who expect something good from my pitches. My PR expertise lies in knowing where
and when to target coverage and why.
I now also offer club promo to get your tracks into established DJ’s sets.
I work with clients on a retainer or project fee basis. If you have progressed as far as you can
by self-marketing, professional PR will boost your career and personal profile, so do get in touch.
LLPR Services include
artist, label and event PR & Communications across
print, online and broadcast media
PR Campaigns for Brands, Nonprofits & Eco Activism

A passionate environmental advocate, I’m a founding member of Bye Bye Plastic, a
plastic-free initiative founded by Vivie-Ann Bakos AKA BLOND:ISH. Our aim is to banish

I’m deeply interested in promoting and encouraging positive environmental change within the
electronic music industry and beyond. I’m a trained marine mammal paramedic for BDMLR,
involved in rescuing baby seals. I’m a keen snorkeler
/ surfer / swimmer and spotter of marine wildlife both in my native North East England’s
bracing seas and in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and other far-flung waters.
Other social issue-related interests include being a mentor for the She Said So ‘she.grows’
program: being a regular volunteer at St Oswald’s Hospice: and during my degree in English
Language at Newcastle University, working as an
intern at Freedom From Torture, raising funds and organising major events.
