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.
“One of the unsigned music industry’s largest names.”
CEO / The Music Magazine
“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.”
“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.”
In a time when hype and buzz usually implies the opposite of what it promises, it’s so refreshing, and more than a little bit mind-blowing, to witness the results delivered by James Moore/IMP. January Zero is perhaps the perfect proving ground for their capabilities, as we had literally no press, no visibility going into the month. Within the first week, that changed dramatically. It was so surreal to see reviews start showing up, from serious news outlets and high profile media bloggers alike. But then, it just kept on going, which made the whole month into long-form hallucination, a very convincing and wonderful daydream. Wrapping up, we’re reviewed on no fewer than 15 high profile sites, with a video review and an interview to top it off. Within one month, we have a viability and an irrefutable public presence that I might never have achieved on my own.
When you are a fully independent artist, the freedom is wonderful, but the lack of representation can leave you flailing about for traction in the seemingly impossible task of making your work visible, to say nothing of having it recognized or reviewed, or getting it to stand out. I’d been searching for some secret weapon to level the playing field, some lever to flip the balance of power. Independent Music Promotions is that secret weapon.
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.

“The PR we got from “The Miller Girl” campaign, run by James, has been nothing short of amazing. The sheer volume of coverage we got from the campaign is worth its weight in gold. It is vital on this day and age to have someone like James on your team. There just aren’t enough hours in the day as an artist to get the results that he can with his clout, contacts and experience. Hire him, now!”

“My band ”Slim Loris” recorded and released an album but were struggling a bit with promoting it. We decided to use the services of James Moore and Independent Music Promotions to get some more publicity. In a couple of weeks time James had generated more press and reviews for us than we had managed our selves in several months. I would highly recommend Independent Music Promotions for any independent band looking to get their music noticed.”
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!
“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.”

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!

A few days ago I had an interesting conversation with a promoter who said “anyone who guarantees anything is not trustworthy”. James and his company are the self-evident proof that there are people who do indeed keep their promises in this industry – as a young, independent artist, I’m thankful to say the least, for the efforts made in putting my music and my name out there.
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.
If your music could use some professional promotion, the insightful and inspiring words from Moore will definitely be helpful.

“James Moore will provide you with all of the tools to help get your music out to the masses.”
IMP has exposed The Blue Project to the “now crowd” bringing this Blues project to today’s generation and today’s social media. IMP is great.
Musician / The Blue Project
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.
“James at I.M.P. did an incredible job of pitching my music. He delivered a large amount of press for me over a 6 week period, and really helped kickstart a new season of my career. His connections are solid and his communication skills are top notch.”
Trust me. You have my word. You’re going to get everything you pay for with this guy.
“I’m more then happy to recommend Independent Music Promotions to deliver on what they promise. What James Moore does is unique; he works with carefully chosen independent artists on a one on one format to music web sites, blogs and magazines that are well-respected.”
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.
