Publicity can be a tricky, frustrating, and tedious process. As a musician, you rarely want to "sell yourself"; talking yourself up seems a bit conceited and can put people off. I understand this and have told my clients, "I work in the tedium". It can be a long arduous process, and sometimes you just want to focus on writing and performing your art, so....
Let me deal in the tedium for you.
* Press Releases
* Press Interviews (Radio, News Publication, Magazine, Blog)

Publicity services are billed on an hourly basis. Let's meet up. When I have your information, I can estimate how much work is needed and how much time will need to be allotted.

"Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy." -- Psalm 126:5
I was always taught to sing as unto the Lord. The Lord has never failed me, He will never fail. Because of the testimony of a faithful God and the love of Jesus Christ, I assist in helping people reach the throne room of grace. I long to seek God and long for people to understand and respond to the love of God.
I have served as a worship leader for the past seven years at Knox Presbyterian, and continue ministering to those in chains - brought down by the burden of sin. All of us are in need of a Savior, and I am to be counted in those that have a need. As someone humbled, I boast in the Lord's faithfulness and His leading me to share my story of loss, of love, of life, and of hope to women's ministries, church congregations, youth groups, and college students.
"Jesus answered 'It is written: Serve the Lord your God and worship Him only'" -- Luke 4:8

There are seriously fun parts of my job and finding new talent and helping the community are a couple of them.
In the Ann Arbor music community, I am known as a connector. I love to learn about new bands and artists in the area and get them in touch with other artists, venues, promoters throughout the Metro-Detroit area. It really is one of my passions to help others be able to accomplish their dreams and goals.
I currently volunteer my time with The Ark in Ann Arbor, celebrating its 50th year, in doing marketing and scouting; seeking out talent and referring artists to program management. In addition, I provide grassroots services including postering and blogging for one of their social media sites.
Booking takes dedication to the craft. You need to know what is best for the band and artist and what is best for the venue/festival.
To be honest, it can be a lot of back and forth, and sometimes, you do not always get what you want. Booking is an art. Each booked show expresses respect and dedication to the artist/bands that you work for.
Let me work for you. Traditionally, income for a booking agent is on a commission basis (percentage). I am traditional and charge a percentage for each event booked for an artist and/or band. Let's chat it up.
