Lydia Laws PR
Getting you and your music noticed
My boutique PR & Communications agency specialising in electronic music offers artists, labels, and also eco initiatives and lifestyle event brands, an elite personalised service.
Through years of pitching to worldwide print, online and broadcast media, and working with artists and projects I can be passionate about, I’ve developed hundreds of valuable relationships with media contacts. My PR expertise lies in knowing where and when to target coverage and why.
Am also a founding member of Bye Bye Plastic, founded by Vivie-Ann Bakos AKA BLOND:ISH to banish single-use plastic from music industry festivals and venues by 2025, via campaigns such as #PlasticFreeParty.
Am 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: mentoring 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, organising major fund raising events.
