Our PR model is based around a monthly service where we speak to media on your behalf every day and update you on media coverage as it happens. No waiting for a monthly or weekly report, you get a dedicated online portal and personal alerts from our team straight away so you can share your wins with the team, your customers and on social media.

Included in our PR package are press releases which actually work and the creation and management of a dedicated brand online newsroom for press releases, images, video and more.

The team also attend a range of conventions from CES to SXSW to spread the word about you and this is included within the cost of the PR package.

events.


We run events across all our territories for clients and non clients. The aims may be different but the core focus is getting you in front of the right media with the right message and the right PR team by your side.

Why? Because we generate instant impact coverage with key media from our events, rather than run them like a coffee morning with no results or objectives in mind. An Instagram snap of the amazing coffee cups at a 5 star hotel doesn’t work for anyone.

Whether it’s an event at Abbey Road Studios, Madison Square Gardens, The Barbican or the dirtiest record shop you’ve ever seen, we’ve managed them all and been seen in The Guardian, Rolling Stone, USA Today, Metro and GQ.

Our one month consultancy service is completely confidential and starts with a PR health check where we use our services and software to see your PR wins and fails over the last 12 months, looking at your own objectives.

We then benchmark the coverage against your rivals, targets and wider objectives.

photography & video.


We work with a team of photographers and direct shoots ourselves. Why? Many of the team are ex journalists and have experience in commissioning shoots which appeal to key media.

It is important to remember that the photography you produce for commercials, retail or other outlets may not meet the needs of the media so we’re the people in the middle, ensuring that you have the right images and video which will actually reach millions of people.

In PR, a promotional image is wasted if it isn’t published.

Starscream Sessions.


Every three months, we host a double artist showcase event in Kings Cross, London and invite media to an open bar to hear the stuff we’re listening to.

The artists get in front of key media, the media discover a great night out and our clients, studios and labels are always watching for the next artist to work with. The artists get paid, a decent guest list and a stack of professional photos for social or their mum. The most popular artist over the year will then be invited to our first ever New York showcase event for Starscream Sessions in Manhattan and sometimes, a very special guest will drop in to play…
