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.

bracing seas and in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and other far-flung waters.

Lifting the Lyd Podcast
Interviews with Inspiring Achievers
In this podcast series, I chat with creative, inspiring people
who follow their passions, whether it is saving the planet or its creatures, creating and
sharing music or art, writing, or making their own business dream come true.
Meet DJs, authors, sports figures, scientists, eco warriors,
successful businesspeople, and find out how, and why, they do what they do.
In Series 1 join me to meet people like; a seal- and whale-life saving paramedic; a
chart-topping crime writer with Lee Child for a fan; a young entrepreneur who built a
massive sports editorial empire from scratch; a publicist to the world’s leading
electronic music artists who started as an obsessed raver in the trenches of the
Australian music industry; a marine biologist whose passion has taken her to Mozambique,
the Maldives, the Middle East and more.
