“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.”

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.
We were new to the music PR process and didn’t know what would work best for our band in the months leading up to our record release. We were skittish at first, but James Moore did an amazing job in warming us up to the entire process and earning our trust with his knowledge of the market and concise vision. The positive reviews seemed to come pouring in almost right after he started working with us. Weeks later, we look back and can’t thank him enough for helping to give our music the kind of digital footprint we had been working for. James even helped us land a review on AbsolutePunk.net — one of our longtime favorite music sites. James knows his stuff and we will keep his name in our pockets when we are in need of a PR push.
“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.”
“Our band (The Barrens) was referred to James Moore by EndAnd. After seeing their success we decided to take a chance hiring him for his services. It didn’t take long at all–we got results that we couldn’t get anywhere else: album reviews, interviews, and new fans all around the world. James is very well-connected with the industry and he also provides quality customer service, making us feel at ease and respected as artists.”
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.
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.

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!

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.

“James delivers. Enough said.”
Plastic Yellow Band
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
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.

“James lays the foundation every indie, DIY band needs to survive in the digital age.”
“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.”
