“Mantra provided creative, wise, consistent and effective PR for our artists, and made us feel like family in the process. I highly recommend this agency.”

— Jana Herzen, CEO
Motema Music

 

“When we started our search for a publicity firm, we purposely set out to find a company with a proven background in a variety of industries. Our clients, a rock band from Europe, were about to embark on their first national tour of the United States, and the phrase ‘you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression’ haunted us. We knew it was critical that the band not fall through the cracks at any number of larger music promotions company. We wanted promotional efforts to be organized and facilitated by an agency that understood our goals, was empathetic to our clients’ needs, could help formulate newsworthy press materials and generate interest about our clients across a variety of mediums.

 

“Mantra did all of this in spades! First, they demonstrated a clear understanding of our unique situation and helped us solidify our message and vision. Then, they took on the task of coordinating traffic between label, management, radio promoters and tour crew. Their professionalism and leadership in arranging radio and print interviews during the tour was seamless, and communication throughout was consistent and concise. However, what made this experience most worthwhile was the manner in which these efforts were conducted. Throughout the entire campaign there was an intangible element that could best be described as a kind of ‘karmic calmness,’ the presence of a certain tone that put everyone at ease. Anyone can buy services and expect to get what they’ve paid for, but it’s always the intangibles that provide the true value. We would enthusiastically recommend Mantra Public Relations without hesitation, and will certainly partner with them again on future projects.”

“You think you can be an artist and make a living still doing your own PR? BULL. I've dragged Gaye Carleton & her staff in all kinds of directions from press kits to record parties to news releases to radio promo to industry rep calls. I've made hairpin turns, improvised off the cuff, and gotten totally anal on the details. [The agency] has been right there all the way, getting the job done with polish, showing the world that I'm not just another pudknocker whimpering outside the moguls' doors. You wanna play this game, you gotta put up a professional front, and that means relying on somebody you can trust, who knows the difference between what works and what pegs you as an amateur. That's why I stick with [them].”
