Laurena Marrone of Grit PR is the absolutely best PR person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I’ve sought the assistance of PR people on many occasions over the years, trying to increase the awareness of my Independent Music Conference. I am not exaggerating when I say that not one person before Laurena was able to get me any real results. Laurena’s offer of assistance was nothing short of good fortune. Not only has she done what none of her colleagues before her were able to do, but she has succeeded on a scale I couldn’t have hoped for! She set up blogs for the IMC and wrote great content for them, she got us multiple online interviews, magazine articles, home page mentions on prominent web sites, engaged in regular online posting for us… Laurena gets the job done!!! She’s reliable, responsible, accountable, and a real pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend this true professional highly enough!

I just wanted to say a belated THANK YOU from Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers for publicizing our US shows this past summer. You guys charge a very reasonable rate, and we had some coverage in all 3 of the markets we played, which is more than I can say for the Canadian publicists we have worked with. I would recommend you highly to any band inquiring about US publicity.
