Music Publicity - Radio & Press
We are primarily a promotion agency, specializing in mailings to our list of radio and media contacts in the US, Canada and around the world. We are very different from other publicists. We hand-package everything, incorporate DIY crafting into the packages, write bios that tell a story, and put a lot of love into each mailing.
HearthPR is a trusted brand among our contacts, and we frequently hear how much they love the music we’re sending, or how they might have missed the music if it hadn’t come from us. Our goal with a promotional mailing is to introduce your music to the movers and shakers in the industry. This can lead to bookings, in studios, reviews, and online sales. Our artists routinely chart on the Folk-DJ Chart, the FAR Chart, and/or the Roots Music Report, often in the Top 10. Our artists have gotten major press, including articles/features via NPR Music, Daytrotter, Country Music Television, Huffington Post, USA Today, World Cafe, Gorilla vs. Bear, KEXP, Songlines, No Depression and many many more. But really, our bottom line is to share our love of your music with everyone we know. And we excel at that.

Here are some artists we've worked with as publicists since starting our PR business in 2010: Pokey Lafarge, Zoe Muth, Smithsonian Folkways, Elizabeth Mitchell, Caleb Klauder, Foghorn Stringband, Dirk Powell, Mary Jane Lamond, Hanneke Cassel, Joel Savoy, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Cahalen Morrison & Eli West, John Reischman & The Jaybirds, Pharis & Jason Romero, The Two Man Gentlemen Band, The Honey Dewdrops, Woody Pines, and many more!
