Above & beyond airplay, we can also pitch for Track of the Day features at key stations like WXPN [Philadelphia, PA], KCMP/The Current [St. Paul, MN], KUTX [Austin, TX], KCRW [Santa Monica, CA], KEXP [Seattle, WA], & KUOM "Radio K" [Minneapolis, MN], to name a few!
Before they went on to sign w/ major labels or large indie labels, Rupam & Robb were also key in helping new artists establish a foothold at radio, like Jake Bugg, Small Black, Angel Olsen, Jessica Pratt, Hookworms, INC., Julia Holter, Francis & The Lights, Crystal Antlers & more!
If & when an artist of ours is on the road, we can solicit in hopes of Tour Support, seeking in-studio opportunities, at-venue interviews, phoners, on-air ticket giveaways for listeners, or simply getting DJ's out to the shows - whatever a given band, label or manager would find ideal.
We also highlight our clients in our Spotify Playlist.
