MBC’s Top 5 Music PR Companies in Australia

 
In March this year, I did two articles about the music industry.

First one was “MBC’s Top 5 Music Studios In Australia” and second “Australia’s Top 5 Indie Record Labels You Should Know.”

Here are the article for you to read in your own time.
1/ http://musicbeatscentral.blogspot.com.au/2016/03/mbcs-top-5-music-studios-in-australia.html
2/ http://musicbeatscentral.blogspot.com.au/2016/03/australias-top-5-indie-record-labels.html

It received such an overwhelming response and a few months later, I thought to add to that series.

Here are my Top 5 Australian Music PR Companies.

If you have been looking for the right Music PR Company to help promote your brand i.e. you and your music, than you have come to the right place.

Congrats Little Sparrow in making the number 1 spot in MBC’s Top 5.

1/ Little Sparrow (Gold Coast, Queensland) http://www.littlesparrowpr.com/

A boutique publicity company dedicated to a hands on approach to promote all forms of music and entertainment.

Karen Lindsay spent 3 years in the field of music publicity before branching out with her own business in May 2011 offering publicity to all fields of entertainment.

Previous to launching her own business, Karen was heavily involved with promotion and assistant national touring duties for Sydney based rock band Stone Parade.  

This involved promoting their current release ‘Stratosphere’.   

Her role with Stone Parade remains the same to this day as well as handling their day to day affairs. 

In addition, she assisted promoting Brisbane based singer and former member of The Ten Tenors, Gregory Moore with his 2010 CD release ‘I’ve Dreamed of You’ through Ambition Entertainment, Sydney.

Since establishing her business in 2011, Little Sparrow continues to grow and expand with 8 full time clients ranging from up and coming independent artists to Emmy winning and multi Grammy nominated US recording artist, Toni Childs.
