"It has been a real privilege to work with the team at Prescription PR. In the fast moving world of music publicity it’s a rarity to work with such a driven team of publicists who will take the time to understand, nurture and develop the story you’re trying to tell and then amplify this into a dynamic and vibrant campaign, leaving no stone unturned along the way. The results they have achieved for our artists have been phenomenal, but above all it’s the team’s genuine and sincere passion for music that shines through."

When it comes to jazz music you can often be caught between two different realms of press within the same genre; traditional publications and emerging online platforms. There are well established audiences for both and they are constantly evolving as new styles develop and the scene changes. You need a PR company that knows how to navigate this terrain, whilst finding avenues to take your music to newer audiences. We like to think that our team can not only help you gain coverage with traditional jazz audiences, but are also both excited and capable of finding other key areas to represent your music in the press. We were trusted by Universal, for example, on the press campaign for Whiplash’s LP release – a film that introduced a lot of new people to a deeper love of jazz as a genre, and in turn it was our place to find new, creative places for coverage.
Our team have strong connections with the traditional areas of coverage such as Mojo, Uncut, Jazzwise, Jazz Journal, All About Jazz, The Wire, LondonJazz News, JazzInEurope and Record Collector, but we have also been able to secure coverage for a number of our artists in less conventional areas such Stereogum, the Quietus, Aquarium Drunkard, Stamp The Wax and more.
Our roster includes estimable labels such as Gearbox Records, the revered Naim Records, leading reissue label Superior Viaduct, Finland’s Svart Records and many more. Similarly we have recently had the pleasure of working with the likes of Yazz Ahmed (a Radiohead and Shabaka Hutchings collaborator), who’s latest album ‘La Saboteuse’ earned plaudits from the likes of the Guardian, Mojo, Uncut, Record Collector, Jazzwise, Prog, the Quietus, Stereogum, Stamp The Wax, The Vinyl Factory and many more.
We are also proud to be the press team behind the new album ‘Journey To The Mountain Of Forever’ from young jazz innovators, Binker and Moses, who have previously won: Best Jazz Act (MOBO Awards 2015), UK Jazz Act Of The Year (Jazz FM Awards 2016), Breakthrough Of The Year (Jazz FM Awards 2016) and Jazz Newcomer Of The Year (Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2016).
Whilst we are privileged to work with such recognised artists, we are very happy to be representing a number of incredible unsigned artists and are able to put their albums into the hands of writers that we know are right for the release, even without label backing. Most recently we have worked alongside Lebanese composer and pianist, Omar Rahbany, whose debut Arabic jazz fusion album ‘Passport’ received praise from the likes of Songlines, Uncut, R2, Jazz FM, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction, The Arts Desk and more.
Whether you’re looking to push a traditional jazz release, or you are putting a new twist on the genre, we can get your music to the right people and more. We are also able to handle specialist radio on such projects – so if you’re looking for a team that can cover all your promotional needs then we can do just that.
