Founded in 1997 out of sheer love and a lifelong enthusiasm for music (oh, and the desire to no longer work for the man), Other Worldly Contact continues to offer clients imaginative, thorough marketing and public relations and tour consulting services. With a wide range of knowledge and expertise in marketing, public relations, promotions and event management, Other Worldly Contact has represented an even broader range of clients including musicians, bands, artists, and technology and consumer/retail products.
Our roster is kept small so you can get the attention you deserve. No junior publicists here – just hard work and good results from an experienced professional. The aim is not only to represent our clients, but also to be an integral part of their efforts to garner media coverage, develop and enhance brand recognition and establish key relationships with those who will help them reach their goals.
Other Worldly Contact services include (but are not limited to!):
Public Relations – we work closely with clients to develop targeted campaigns aimed at all levels of relevant media outlets including print, broadcast and web. Our public relations expertise ranges from high-level media training and message development to ground-level tactical efforts for album launches, artist introductions, and tour press.
Web Marketing – create and orchestrate online promotions and marketing campaigns for new releases, tours and artist development. Other Worldly Contact focuses primarily on getting the word out via websites, blogs, video aggregators and any other crevice in the online universe.
Event Management – plan and manage events from start to finish. From launch parties, private shows, and showcases – we strive to create memorable experiences that get your name out and message across.
Tour Consulting – plan, budget, staff tours for emerging and established artists. Never toured the US before? Need a remote tour manager or want someone to set you off on the right foot? Leave the planning to us. We have extensive touring backgrounds and a wide network to help you make the most out of your tour.
