We get press for every single one of our artists. And unlike many PR’s, we even get press for ourselves! I.M.P and James Moore have been featured in dozens of publications, from majors such as Sonicbids, ASCAP, Music Think Tank, Indie-music.com and Bandzoogle to Dotted Music, Target Audience Magazine, I Am Entertainment, Musicperk, Just Go, Blog Critics and Vandala Magazine.
“Moore remains brutally honest in the best way possible, explains what you need to do, while setting realistic expectations and never sugarcoating the truth.”

Independent Music Promotions helps artists carve a path through the muck of the Internet. James Moore knows what he is doing and wants to give light to all the great musicians breaking their back for the good of song. He can help to make sense of our fast-paced world, while the musicians can focus on creating their best work. It’s no fun trying to juggle creativity with business and no one gets that more than Moore. IMP yeah you know me.

Deciding to work with James was the best decision we’ve made to publicize our second release, Heartbeat Serenade. The results have been spectacular and far beyond our expectations. We have (thankfully) received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and traffic is way up on our website as a result. We cannot recommend James highly enough and are grateful for his expertise and dedication in getting every last review possible. We’re so glad we worked with him and plan to do so again for our next release!

“James lays the foundation every indie, DIY band needs to survive in the digital age.”
I had a thoroughly positive experience working with James and independent music. It was refreshing to work with a company that values art and understands an artist’s priorities. My EP reached audiences I could have never reached on my own and James kept in close contact with me throughout the process. I would recommend IMP to any independent artist trying to expand their audience.
James at independentmusicpromotions.com is the real deal. He made sure our second EP got TONS and TONS of more press and reviews then our first EP (the one that we didn’t use IMP to do the PR work for) did. As any TRULY independent band will tell you, it can be very scary business putting out a project. There are a lot of grifters and fakes out there in the PR game. As a independent band, you’re paying for everything that must go into making a project happen. from the recording/mixing/mastering, to merch, to PR, and everything else in between. Spending your PR budget on some joker who will not do the job right, or at all, is devastating to getting your music out there. James and IMP do what they said they’re going to do. Their word matters to them. Their work and name matter to them. Nice to know that there some good guys left in the music industry.
“James is a great guy and a true professional. He has the knowledge and the passion to create great results. I am really glad that we met and we are working together and I cannot thank him enough.”

“After releasing my first album as a leader, I spent many months contacting reviewers with little response until I found Independent Music Promotions. Once I delegated all of that hard work to James Moore, I was getting more results and attention faster than I had anticipated. I could focus a lot of my energies on the music again. I was even getting more calls to perform rather than making them. I believe that if you have something good and you’re starting out without help, James can definitely get you results.”

IMP was able to customize a campaign and work collaboratively with Klassik and his team that was extremely effective in securing placements on major media publications from our releases to a targeted audience. James is very flexible and easy to work with and one of the most honest and reliable people you will find in the music industry.

Independent Music Promotions took The Devine Xperience to the next level. Our career has been blasted into the stratosphere because of them. We have done multiple campaigns with them for Album releases, Remix releases, and Music Video releases and must say that they have consistently delivered press for us that far exceeded our expectations. We know that we never would be where we are today without them. James is extremely professional, organized, and if you are lucky enough for him to accept your project, he is genuinely an advocate for your project on a level that is unheard of for a PR company in our experience. If I could give one piece of advice to anyone that is interested in elevating their career in the music industry, it would be to really invest in yourself and your future by working with the best PR company in the game. I look forward to the future because I know The Devine Xperience will continue to succeed because we made the right choices in building our team and your team in the music business is only as strong as its weakest link.
I have no doubt in my mind that James Moore is one hell of a stand-up guy and tirelessly-devoted servant to the music-scene in all areas & genres. A man of character and drive, with an in-depth understanding of music I can truly respect.
“James Moore is one of the best promo guys in the business. His media relations efforts are unmatched as he works tirelessly with journalists in getting the best PR for his clients. James is indispensable to editors and he always pitches his clients so that they stand out from the rest. He provides editors with mountains of information on his people! I recommend James and I.M.P. because his musicians may not see the work he puts in, but he is fighting for them behind the scenes. We at CaliforniaRocker.com truly appreciate him.”
“With his heart deeply rooted into the soil of musician’s advocacy, James Moore has established himself as one of the few remaining folks who continue to devote their careers in order to support independent and DIY artists all over.”

“Thanks for doing such a great job for a very reasonable cost.
This is exactly what Manilow needed to get some search buzz and, more
importantly, some great reviews by interesting people who were well
James is a professional that has a solid track record and solid relationships with over 10 years of experience that has a global reach.
True Groove Records highly recommends I.M.P. We’ve been working with James Moore and IMP for four years now and he has continuously surpassed our expectations — achieving fabulous results for our flagship artists Tomás Doncker Band, Marla Mase, Lael Summer and Kevin Jenkins. All you have to do is google any of these names and you will see what IMP has made happen for us. With 6 upcoming releases in the next two months IMP will be very busy promoting True Groove — what we love most about James/IMP is their tireless efforts to promote music with depth and the integrity with which they work. Unlike most PR companies, IMP promises and delivers. A colleague who we referred IMP to, called IMP, her “secret weapon.” Oh well, we’re letting the cat out of the bag so go ahead and watch your career go the next level. Marla Mase and Tomás Doncker

Don’t let anyone tell you that there aren’t any good mentors in the music business these days. Because I know one.
James Moore formed Independent Music Promotions because he saw a huge gap in what musicians needed and what was being sold to them.
Independent Music Promotions is a compelling indie artist’s greatest friend. If you’ve got the goods, you have two options; Pay an insufferably overpriced publicist that will provide you a decidedly poor return on investment, or call James Moore. As a musician himself and as someone who’s been in the trenches for two decades, he’s fully cognizant how difficult fighting the good fight and securing online publicity can be. James over delivers on every promotion, works within your budgetary constraints and is easily accessible to the client throughout the entire process. He has the relationships and respect necessary to help you get to the next level in a timely fashion. I highly recommend James and Independent Music Promotions for your next project!
Getting quality press coverage is difficult for any indie artist trying to promote themselves in an already crowded marketplace. James Moore really gets your music in front of the right people for maximum exposure. He exceeded my expectations, especially when he got me a feature in the Huffington Post! Working with James was just the boost I needed to take my career to next level.
I.M.P have gone way beyond the call of duty for us. The amount of music promotion and press coverage we got for our album was beyond anything that we could have imagined. Every step of the way with I.M.P we felt like we were working with people who understood our music and where we were coming from.
