Client Testimonials:

“Anyone that’s been in the music biz trenches for a while knows that you are only as effective as the team you surround yourself with. Now more than ever, it’s essential to work with seasoned professionals that know how to create & execute campaigns that are ambitious, yet realistic and that make sense for the project being worked. I know when I hire Press Junkie that Ryan, Mercedes and their team are going to be the best kinds of partners. I count on them to help us strategize a press campaign that is going to fit the needs of my records and I know that they deliver on what they say they are going to do. Press Junkie has worked many projects, in a variety of genres for Six Degrees Records over the years and whatever they take on, I am always confident that we are in good hands. There’s a reason that we have been working with them since they started 10 years ago and that I enthusiastically recommend them whenever other labels ask my advice about finding a good indie publicist. Good, honest, hard working people that understand the music they are working with and that take pride in what they do- what else can you ask for?”- Bob Duskis – President & Co-Founder Six Degrees Records

“Press Junkie PR was able to craft Analog Players Society’s messaging in a way that really captured who we are as a group, plus zero in on press targets that were a really great fit for our music and brand. Not to mention, they landed us NPR’s Fresh Air! They have a knack for being able to cut through the noise and highlight what made our group noteworthy, making others pay attention. Couldn’t have asked for a better PR experience!” – Analog Players Society

“Press Junkie PR and Ryan in particular has been an incredible addition to our team at ESL Music. We have worked with publicists and press agents of all kinds over the years and in Ryan we have found someone who truly gets things done. In addition to great contacts and press placements, Ryan takes a personal interest in the project and with the artists and becomes a core part of the team. He’s helped us with releases, tour dates, and other unique project efforts and we won’t hesitate to use him again in the future.” – Phil Hawkin, ESL Music

“I could not be more delighted with the PR services of Ryan Romana. He put together an incredibly successful high-impact strategic campaign for my first US tour and ‘Wild Angels’ album release. He targeted and won coverage with major publications such as the Los Angeles Times and New York Times and primary online resources such as and, while traversing music, fashion, lifestyle, listings and reviews. I was given abrief about the publication, the writer and the agenda for the piece before every interview and interviews were scheduled to work as harmoniously as possible with my hectic schedule. Ryan is fantastic to work with, highly motivated, intelligent, creative and committed. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” – Mary Anne Hobbs

“Press Junkie have been pinnacle in getting the word out about Fort Knox Recordings, and all of our artists. Press Junkie has landed huge video and tracks premieres for us on heavy hitter press outlets such as Magnetic Magazine, Spinner, Blurt, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Urb to name a few. They have handled all of our press for the last couple of years. I highly recommend their services for all up and coming and established labels, and artists. They specialize in reggae, latin, world, funk oriented hip hop, and electronic. It is such a pleasure working with this crew. They devote so much attention to each project, and keep a running record of all press accomplishments. I could not recommend a better team to run your press projects.” – JonH, Fort Knox Recordings

“You guys are AWESOME and I’m super grateful to you for all your hard, hard work. big up!” – Maga Bo

“After 3 DIY tours in the States we knew it was time to go with a publicist.  Ryan appeared at just the right time and we had a feeling he was a great fit.  Our feeling turned out to be correct as Ryan and Press Junkie PR gave us that extra and impressive PR push we needed.  Needless to say our 4th USA tour was our most successful and I have no doubt that Press Junkie PR was a key part.” – Grant C. Dull aka El G – Label Manager and DJ ZZK Records

In the digital music age it can be a daunting task to get the attention of the myriads of bloggers and music publications out there, especially if you’re a label whose focus is the anachronistic vinyl 45RPM record. Ryan and the Press Junkie team were able to find what we were looking for: the attention, appreciation, and support of a larger press and blog community that went beyond our expectations. Maybe the fact that Press Junkie are vinyl aficionados themselves helped the team pitch our artists and releases but most likely it’s just their general optimism, enthusiasm, and love for what they do that have made our PR campaigns with them a huge success. We feel that Press Junkie is part of who we are and what we represent and we look forward to collaborating with them more as we grow.  – Jim Thomson (Label Boss Electric Cowbell Records)

“I had high expectations for Ryan Romana of Press Junkie PR and he far exceeded them during our campaign together for Pistolera’s third album. I have worked with various publicists over the years and have always been disappointed in the diversity of their results. Ryan struck the perfect balance of reaching indie, world, and latin media. He delivered week after week. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and recommend him a hundred times over.” – Sandra Velasquez, Pistolera

“Ryan has a keen understanding of both method and relationship, a combination that allows him to not only land the big press placements but also ensure complete coverage on any campaign.  Ryan’s work as a PR consultant in support of our mobile technology platform launch was integral to securing meaningful editorial reviews without adding undue complexity or overhead. ” – Nathan Sedlander, StarMaker Interactive Inc/Rock River Music

“We love working with Ryan and Press Junkie PR! He is such a lovely person, and a well-oiled promo machine as well. He can turn a major promo opportunity into a reality on a dime – as he did with NPR’s First Listen, a great promotional coup at the release of Vieux’snew album Fondo in the US. But he manages to make this hard work seem almost effortless, and keeps it stress-free for the artist and management.” – Deborah Cohen, Music Manager (Regarding Vieux Farka Touré Campaign)

“In August ’09, Press Junkie PR worked the publicity for Tanya Tagaq’s first tour in the US and they did a fantastic job landing key media and helping sell out shows. I’ll certainly be in touch for the next tour.” – Jack Schuller, Mainstage Management
