our values.


We love music.

We do this because we love it and we like to think it shows.

We always work as a team.

Our skills are greater shared and pack a bigger punch than a one man band.

We help media, not spam them.

When media get 50 pitch emails a day, our face to face ideas work when others fail.

We work fast but never cut corners.

Always there but not at the expense of the quality of our work.

We don’t do suits.

We’re smarter than that.

We only promote audio and music.

PR is not one size fits all. We are the specialists, not the generalists and the media know it.

We offer no bullshit, just facts.

We offer accurate commitments, not speculative promises.

We are not about the numbers.

We believe in the right coverage, not a hit and hope strategy.

We are about the results.

We make a difference. Ask for one of our reports and find out how.

We are Starscream.

Starscream London

Rich Melville

CEO


I founded Starscream in 2013 after a 15-year career as a journalist. I wrote about music, games, film and tech for MSN, Nuts, FHM, The Sunday Times and was Editor of What Hi Fi for a few years. My time as a journalist meant I got lots of poor-quality pitches (but amazing cocktails) from PR types who didn’t understand quite what they were promoting in terms of audio. I love audio and all things connected to the enjoyment of music, so these poor pitches led to the creation of Starscream and a different way of working. Aside from messing around with hi-fi cables the size of tree trunks and sniffing box fresh 180g vinyl, I enjoy gigs, PlayStation and French cider.

Liz Wilkinson

Account Manager


I studied Media & Production Technology at university, with particular focus on sound recording & creative design and subsequently spent 10 years driving Marketing Communications for legendary pro audio brand, Neve – frequenting many of the world’s most iconic recording studios and post-production facilities, before joining Starscream. I’m a proud Northerner, born and raised in Burnley (birthplace of Chumbawamba and Sir Ian McKellan… in case you were wondering). Mum to two wild boys, Wife of fell-running campervan enthusiast and when not working, can usually be found watching true crime documentaries, walking in the countryside or singing along to 80s rock in the kitchen.

Kash Kabir

Account Manager


I got my start as a tech journalist at What Hi-Fi?, spending over seven years reviewing everything from headphones and smartphones to high-end hi-fi systems. Listening to music on amazing audio kit was a highlight, as was going to events and learning how everything works. I’m bringing a love of all-things-audio and nerdy (and pastries) to the Starscream team.

In my spare time I’m trying to watch all the TV shows in the world, listening to 90s/00s rock and podcasts, and tending to an ever-growing houseplant collection.

Amber Johnson

Account Executive


I joined Starscream in 2021 after graduating from the University of Reading with a degree in English Literature the year before. Before I joined Starscream I worked as a content developer for a travel company which sparked my interest in PR and digital marketing. In my spare time I love reading, listening to true crime podcasts and indie music and going gigs and festivals. Since moving to London to work with Starscream I have also been loving eating out with friends and trying lots of different foods!

Rosie Gray

Partnerships Manager


I worked in marketing in the TV industry for over 15 years including twelve years at Disney working on Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars brands. I love TV, movies and any good story really. Music-wise, I’m a big fan of the divas – from Dolly to Madonna, Beyonce to Shakira and Diana to Gaga. My knowledge of what it takes to be a Disney Princess has served me well as I’m now mum to the feistiest 3-year-old girl I know. Born and raised in London, when not working I love spending time with the family, cooking and eating together and the occasional boot camp class on the side.

Starscream New York

Jaclyn Inglis

Account Manager


I have worked in PR and publicity for 18 years, most of that time working around music in some capacity – with venues, recording studios, record labels, and at Starscream. I consider Brooklyn home but move between New York and Indianapolis to keep a good family balance. When not working, I am practicing or teaching yoga, raising backyard chickens, or competing with my family to become our dog, Sandwich’s favourite human.
