Sound and Vision Promo packages

Hello Bill Cummings here,

I run I have some available time now so I wanted to see if you were interested in what I have to offer for artists and labels.

Over the last ten years I've worked with the likes of The Orielles, Adwaith, Quiet Marauder, R.Seiliog, Castles, Ani Glass, Coasts, The Migrant, Little Eris, Conformist, The Keys, Ten City Nation, HMS Morris and many more, including on festival campaigns featuring worldwide names. In the past six months I have run an album campaign for John MOuse plus introducing a campaign for Hoult and Niterooms and on an EP for Ysgol Sul. I have gained column inches in Guardian, Uncut Magazine, DIY Magzine, Pitchfork, Crack In The Road, Drowned in Sound, TLOBF, Clash Magazine, LTW, Buzz Magazine, South Wales Echo plus a myriad of blogs, playlists, and taste-makers. I have gained airplay with Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Huw Stevens, Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn amongst others.

As a journalist for twenty years(editing and writing for various online and print publications(Gair rhydd, Sound Nation, Buzz, Kruger magazine) and broadcasting with Radio Cardiff, Central Cardiff and now Radio Glamorgan. I have an appreciation of how the media works and a huge passion for local music, emerging UK artists and Welsh artists who I believe deserve a greater platform within the UK.An appreciation of promotion techniques that take in traditional music media of digital, radio and print distribution plus newer techniques that include utilising the benefits of social media and streaming platforms to create a buzz around a new artist or release. I can create impactful one page press releases and I have personal and long-standing connections with journalists, media, and taste-makers both local and national so that I can get your music to the ears of the people that matter.

Working closely with the artist, management and label to find out what works for them, I offer a range of packages including album, single, and a new introducing deal. For three months of digital and print press PR, and some key radio targets, I also often work in conjunction Aled at Beast PR who offer radio plugging both in Wales and the UK wide. After this three month period we can review the campaign and then discuss whether you require longer and more in-depth help with promoting releases moving forward.

If you are interested in seeing my rate card get in touch! I look forward to hearing any music you are working on or releasing! Thanks Bill Cummings
