10 ways to get your music in the press (besides the usual album release and tour PR)

8. When your band has personnel changes

Adding a new member? Losing a member? Did someone quit or get fired? Share your excitement, pain, or acrimony with the world. OK, so maybe tone down the acrimony — but still, this is another opportunity to get coverage for your music, to talk about how your sound will change as a result, and to manage perceptions about the personnel changes.

9. When you enter into a sponsorship, partnership, endorsement deal, or launch a co-branded product

Is Taco Bell or Red Bull helping you out on your next tour? Did you get an endorsement from Taylor Guitars? Are you now the house band for a nursing home choir? Did a local brewery name a beer after your music? First, that’s awesome. Second, alert the press! (And make sure your partner/sponsor is doing their part to get the word out there too).

10. When you appear on high-profile TV or radio shows, or at festivals and benefit concerts

All of these types of events give you a chance to score double the publicity since the show or event will be motivated to promote your appearance as well.

What to tell the press:

  • The details about the event (name, date, time, etc.)
  • Why it’s a big deal (perhaps you can mention the show’s viewership or reach, the number of concert attendees, etc.)
  • And hint at what you’ll be doing for the show or event, and why that is exciting for your fans


Well, hopefully that gives you some new PR ideas. I’m sure I missed quite a few, so please leave your music PR ideas in the comments below.
