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.
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.

“James Moore is the rare individual in the music business that not only does tremendous work for the artists he represents, but truly respects his clients, proving you can have both aheart and a brain in this industry. We highly recommend his services and his book, Your Band is a Virus, to any musician with serious aspirations in music; both are worth every penny.”

“James Moore is a first-rate music industry professional, who is well-connected, who knows great music, and who has the contacts to get your music into the right hands. Independent Music Promotions carefully crafts the resources desired by independent artists who are looking for press or media placement in blogs, magazines, websites, and major publications. I.M.P. works with a love and passion for the music that they expose to the world, carefully selecting artists who have something to say and give back to the world of music, laboring soundly and deliberately to the end of not only growing a base of followers for the artists they serve, but truly attracting publicity from all angles, securing hard-to-find interviews, reviews, and features from publications that place unestablished artists alongside established, well-known acts. The end results are amazing and impressive. I would absolutely recommend the services of James Moore and Independent Music Promotions to any musician or artist looking to take the next step in their career. In coordination with your music and vision, James and I.M.P can deliver solid results and jumpstart your campaign or movement with a caring and guiding hand.”
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!
“Working with James Moore and IMP has been one of the most positive experiences our band has had in the ever changing music industry. There was a very easy line of communication with James, as if I’d been working with him for years. He’s very honest and straightforward, and gives you great tips on how to help your band maximize the work he’s done on your behalf, and his work exceeded our expectations. I can’t recommend the services of IMP enough to a band looking to take their brand to the next level.”
Ryan Hall of Keyser Soze
“James Moore will provide you with all of the tools to help get your music out to the masses.”
IMP did a superb job for us! It’s great to know that you are truly a promotions company that we can count on to deliver the goods.
James is a professional that has a solid track record and solid relationships with over 10 years of experience that has a global reach.
“After self releasing 4 albums with no real publicity follow up, I decided I needed to try something different for my 5th. Instead of doing all the work myself, this time I hired James Moore. I have had so many good write ups as a result of his campaign, a few new facebook fans and a producer even offered to remix one of my songs through the campaign. I highly recommend his services for an independent musician who wants results.”
Trust me. You have my word. You’re going to get everything you pay for with this guy.
“James lays the foundation every indie, DIY band needs to survive in the digital age.”
For our third release, Grand Unifier, we decided to try Independent Music Promotions to help boost our profile and increase our media presence. After many long years of bad choices and wasted money, we finally stumbled across a service that delivered far beyond our expectations. The media coverage was exceptional. The press pieces were apt and insightful. Not only did they provide ample material for us to grow our marketing efforts, they also conveyed wonderful criticism that will ultimately help us improve as a band. Another tremendous positive about Independent Music Promotions is the level of communication they provided. Not once through the process did we feel out of touch or worried about how our money was being spent. The only regret I have is not including more in our project budget to get a bigger media package. The whole experience was positive. We will definitely use them again and will gladly recommend them to any artist seeking this type of service.

“IMP is essential for any artist that truly wants to develop their brand name. Getting press is one of the hardest things for an artist to achieve and Jame’s rapport with the press opens doors for artists he represents. Why? Because they know already that James Moore is a tastemaker with an ear for great music. Also, IMP can help you define and build your target fanbase using techniques often overlooked by less savvy promoters and publicists. His extensive research and knowledge of the ever changing music industry comes in handy for those who are trying to steer their music career in the right direction without all of the usual pitfalls that bands tend to find themselves in.”

“When James Moore said that we would get more then we bargained for we never thought is would be this good. James is highly professional, in regular contact and really, really cares about the artists he works with. And to put the cherry on top he gets amazing results.”
A friend recommended James Moore and I.M.P to us when we were about to release our first EP. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised each week as the press rolled in. James was super encouraging and great to work with. The results of our promo package were way beyond what we expected and helped us tremendously with booking and establishing a web presence. We will definitely use I.M.P again when our LP comes out and recommend James to anyone looking to get their music out there.
James promises much, and delivers more. That’s been my experience. It’s not just that the press comes in, but that there’s more than I expect. James’ contacts in the industry obviously respect his taste. Press for me has therefore been generally positive, but honest too. The best thing about working with James, however, is that he is clearly professional. His communication with you is frequent, clear and very helpful. I think James calls us artists comrades because that’s how we see him; he’s in it with us, and is willing to give counsel on your career, along with delivering great press 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.
Artist Manager for Klassik / Klassik
I am so grateful to IMP for helping me get my music out to the world. James and Matt are friendly, efficient, affordable and have heaps of connections that allowed an indie artist like me to give my music the chance it deserves. Once again, thank you so much for all of the great work and for providing these services to DIY artists!
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.
The single biggest mistake bands make is not having a strong, visible presence online and in the press. They work hard to write and record, gig, and market themselves effectively, but labels and potential fans have no idea who they are. If this is a problem you’ve had, you need to contact James Moore at IMP. A great publicist is NOT easy for indie bands to come by in this industry, and a great AFFORDABLE one is almost unheard of. James is friendly, well-connected, and most of all has an obvious passion for his work. When Larusso hired James, we were skeptical; we’d never used a professional publicist before and in all honesty the affordable rates at which he works made me wonder if IMP was going to be even close to on par with the publicists in this industry that charge upwards of $10,000 for a few weeks of outreach. After working with James on the critical mass campaign, we won’t think twice about using any other company again. Not only did we receive insane amounts of press in some of our favorite publications, the connections we made as a result of James’ outreach branched out into new networking and promotional opportunities for our band. You can’t take the next step in your music career without a presence in the entertainment media, so give IMP a shout! I can absolutely guarantee there is no better choice for an indie band around right now.
