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.
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
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!
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 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.”

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.

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.
I.M.P is an important music firm dedicated to promote underground 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.”

Phil Collen (Delta Deep/Def Leppard/Manraze)
“If you are a band or artist with some potential, James Moore knows how to create a lot of noise about you. Through his contacts in the industry he is able to get your music listened to and reviewed by some of the industries top online and print blogs and magazines. Through his company ‘Independent Music Promotions’ James consistently delivers value to the independent artist and always delivers beyond expectation.”

“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.”

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.
“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
“After releasing my first album as a leader, I spent many months contacting reviewers with little response until I found Independent Music Promotions. Once I delegated all of that hard work to James Moore, I was getting more results and attention faster than I had anticipated. I could focus a lot of my energies on the music again. I was even getting more calls to perform rather than making them. I believe that if you have something good and you’re starting out without help, James can definitely get you results.”
Musician / Joan Torres’s All Is Fused
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.
“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.”
I have been working with James at IMP on my new album, Diamonds & Demons. James has done a fantastic job of promotion and putting my music out there into the ethers of the internet. I have received a good amount of coverage including reviews and interviews. James is always available if I have questions and ideas and welcomes them. He’s very supportive and can identify with artists/musicians and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again in the future.
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.
“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.”

“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.”
