Press Junkie PR is run by the husband and wife team, Ryan and Mercedes Romana who have worked over 500 releases and placed over 5,000 articles nationally and internationally in their ten-year span as a company. Their strategic press campaigns have helped artists break on a national level with feature placements regularly on NPR, Billboard, NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone and more. They have worked with GRAMMY award winning and nominated artists including Grupo Fantasma, Ruben Blades, Morgan Heritage, Matisyahu, and El Dusty. Since relocating to Austin in early 2013, the company has worked with many notable Austin artists including Gina Chavez, David Messier, Atash, Atlas Maior, Brownout, Money Chicha, Hard Proof, John Wesley Coleman III, Patricia Vonne, Superfonicos, and Trouble In The Streets. Other national artists and festivals Press Junkie worked with include Beats Antique, Fishbone, Cody Chesnutt, Collie Buddz, Ceu, and the California Roots Music & Arts Festival.
Ryan Romana, founder and partner, states, “When I started Press Junkie PR in 2009, I had a vision and passion to work with under-represented music and musicians, to help them reach a wider audience with both national and regional press. I never thought that I’d have the opportunity to keep doing this for a decade and get the opportunity to work with such talent.” He adds, “I’m very humbled at all the support the city of Austin and musicians here have given us throughout the years. Austin is such a special place for music and creativity.” Mercedes Romana concludes, “I’m beyond words to express my gratitude to the city and musicians of Austin. Thank you for giving us a chance to do what we love.”
