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.
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.
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.
James @ IMP is personable, professional, and is rooting for you to make it happen.
“One of music promotions brightest minds (and as it turns out) nicest guys.”

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.
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.

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.
Getting quality press coverage is difficult for any indie artist trying to promote themselves in an already crowded marketplace. James Moore really gets your music in front of the right people for maximum exposure. He exceeded my expectations, especially when he got me a feature in the Huffington Post! Working with James was just the boost I needed to take my career to next level.
“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.”
Katrin the Thrill
“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.”
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.
“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.”
“I had pretty high expectations when I originally talked with James about working my album. James exceeded those expectations…”

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.
“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.”

Thank you for all your work! I’m more than happy with the results received vs what we paid.
“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.”

” 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.”
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.

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.
