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’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

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.
“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.”

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!

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!
“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.”

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!
“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.”

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.

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.
“I’m amazed and thrilled at the diverse range of articles and reviews that you were able to procure. I love the energy that you’ve kept up during this whole process. It’s inspiring!”
Phil Collen (Delta Deep/Def Leppard/Manraze)
“James Moore has delivered exactly as advertised and then some. We are very happy with the results that we have received. We can’t wait to work with him again in the future.We strongly recommend I.M.P.”
“If you get the opportunity to work with Independent Music Promotions don’t hesitate. James Moore is a Jedi Master of indie PR. He made big promises then delivered a massively successful campaign.”
Thankfully there are a few people in the business who actually care about the quality of creativity and taking it to the masses like James Moore the CEO of Independent Music Promotions.
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 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.”

“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.”
“It’s rare to find competence like James’s. The attention he gave EndAnd has been more than satisfying. We are musicians who have no inclination to take on the role of promoters…or advisors, managers and or A&R personal which James has been to us. We got more then we bargained for.”
“Any artist creating unusual and interesting music should look into working with Independent Music Promotions. James Moore has a very unique perspective on the music industry, and this makes him a great fit for the type of artists he prefers to work with. He is one of the only people working in music who is willing to simply tell it exactly as it is. James gave me a much clearer picture of how the modern industry actually works, and he is filled with useful advice. He is also a great publicist who has a talent for getting fringe music featured in many different types of publications.”

“Moore remains brutally honest in the best way possible, explains what you need to do, while setting realistic expectations and never sugarcoating the truth.”
