“I like these guys because they focus on “music with depth” – a concept that’s near and dear to my own heart. James is a good dude who also happens to be an expert at music promotion and PR – he’s promoted tons of artists from around the globe, he has an incredibly deep network of contacts across a wide variety of genre niches, and he’s written a critically-acclaimed book on music promotion called Your Band Is a Virus.” – Jon Anderson, Two Story Melody

I.M.P was founded by Stephen James Moore, author of the bestselling “Your Band Is A Virus” music marketing book series. Renowned author and music historian Alan Cross recommended “Your Band Is A Virus” on his music blog, and the book was recently listed as among the top 5 Music Business books by Now Entertainment Magazine. The Velvet Shadow has rated it as among the 8 best music marketing guides available today. It’s also been made available in the Harvard Book Store.

We work with “music with depth”. Our mission musically is to “be the change you’d like to see in the world.” Our contacts know this and expect great music from us.

“Permanent write ups from relevant sources, to me, is at the core of what I do…it’s worked for me, my business/brand/book, etc. Guest posts or interviews I did with music business blogs years ago (2011 – 2012) are often the reason artists find me and approach me today. I build your online authority with the long-term in mind.” – Stephen James Moore

I.M.P’s music marketing ethos has been published in many of the most prestigious music industry outlets. Read about our founder’s marketing philosophy in major publications like ASCAP, Dotted Music, Sonicbids, The Huffington Post, Bandzoogle, Onstage Magazine, Louder Than War, Omari MC, Music Industry How To and Performer Magazine. Independent Music Promotions has been awarded Most Innovative Music PR Marketing Firm, 2020 – Canada by Corporate Vision Magazine.

I.M.P takes a practical, SEO-focused approach to promoting your music.

Our Process:

Our approach is practical and multi-faceted. We use targeted marketing to drive new listeners directly to your music on Spotify, Youtube, etc. This is to help raise your SEO long-term as well as boost your presence short-term. The higher the package, the more the results and media response, because it means we can do more manual, niche pitching of your music as well as more paid marketing ( a substantial amount of what we receive goes directly back into advertising, pitching, placing and supporting your music).

We have an EPK plus news release created, reaching out to the music media along with a selection of indie radio and podcasts requesting mentions, news posts, reviews, interviews, shares, playlist adds, whatever type of support is most convenient for their format.

As opposed to the many pop-up services offering primarily Spotify streams, I.M.P offers real, comprehensive music promotion leading to actual permanent write-ups and relevant coverage of your music. Temporary playlists and botted streaming services are a detriment to artists everywhere. Even Spotify’s algorithm scours Google for any genuine mentions, reviews or embeds of your music. This is why our practical, SEO-focused approach is so important now more than ever.

Also, we connect with our industry partners after getting to know your music, specifically engaging the ones we feel will be most helpful in raising your presence, or bloggers/reviewers who we think will ‘get’ your music. Everything is personalized down to subgenres, themes, niches and location.

To help support everything else, we hype, share, hashtag etc you throughout our socials during the campaign. We add you strategically to our own playlists on all networks.
