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.
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 helped us to give our farewell album a sendoff to be remembered. He brought in over 15K new ears, from all over the world, for one last, sublime hurrah.

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.

“James lays the foundation every indie, DIY band needs to survive in the digital age.”
I’m very proud to recommend James Moore from Independent Music Promotions to offer you some of the most cost effective PR packages available today.
James @ IMP is personable, professional, and is rooting for you to make it happen.
“James provides one-on-one attention to his artists, and delivers on his end of the deal. By tapping his extensive network of media relations, he allows the artist access to a much broader scope of press opportunity. I will also say that I was happy to see a few (slightly) less than positive reviews pop up online, which assuaged my ethical worries of “buying” good press. James delivers exposure to his handpicked artists, but the press is real and sinks or swims based on the quality of the music. IMP is a great tool for independent musicians who are ready to take their media presence to the next level.”
Musician / The Plum Magnetic
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!
“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.”
Trust me. You have my word. You’re going to get everything you pay for with this guy.
“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.”
I think James is spot-on with his thoughts on what artists need to know and the mindset they need to adopt in order to be successful in today’s music industry.

I have worked with James Moore and Independent Music Promotions exclusively during the release of my last two C.D.s. Each time I received careful, personalized service that greatly helped me reach my goal of creating awareness for my music. Professional, reliable and extremely effective, I couldn’t more highly recommend anyone for a promotional campaign.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a handful of PR companies and IMP has been the best by far in terms of price, exposure and communication. James truly cares for the artists and delivers every time. Keep rocking.”
” I am very pleased with the amount of press James obtained for our compilation release “pretty sweet stuff”. We opted for one of his lower-cost promotional packages and if one Googles “Mike comfort pretty sweet stuff”, that’s all James and independent music promotions. It is my opinion that this is a lot of press for a small amount of money.
There are many companies on the Internet that offer independent music promotion, but we chose James because of his solid reputation in the industry. We did our homework and simply could not find one negative article about him anywhere on the Internet. I also like the fact that he was very responsive and took time to thoroughly answer any questions we had. We will be using James and independent music productions for a new project we are working on once it is finished. Thank you for all your hard work James.”
I’m an independent musician. After releasing my 1st album I realized how difficult it is to get heard and/or create any type of buzz. When I finished my 2nd album, I wanted to ensure I didn’t make the same mistakes and allow my album to fall through the cracks. So I contacted James at Independent Music Promotions. Of course at first you’re always nervous to invest your time, money and music into something you’ve never tried before, but I am so glad I did. My experience with James was great! He was awesome to work with. He gave me updates throughout the whole process and always answered any questions I had quickly. But most importantly, the amount of press he was able to get me about my album was more than I ever thought possible. If you need help getting your music out there, I definitely recommend Independent Music Promotions. I know I will be using them again for my next album. Richard Tyler Epperson

James was great to work with. Being an electronic artist I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as media coverage; but James spoke my language and was a huge help by listening to my needs. He got my album a ton of press and reviews in just a month’s time, and helped solidify my album’s presence on the web. It’s easy to get lost in the swell of bands out there, so it was good to have Independent Music on my side. I can’t wait to work with him again.
“One of the unsigned music industry’s largest names.”
