Wall of Sound PR

After attending the University of Liverpool to study Archaeology of Ancient Civilisations following a brief obsession with Time Team, Jamie deferred his studies to follow his real passion in life when his fledgling band landed a record deal with Bad Religion imprint Epitaph Records. Following a short-lived career as a professional musician he began promoting rock shows independently in Liverpool, before moving into event management with Mama Group and various festivals. Previous connections led him to a role in artist management and A&R alongside Starwood Management where he worked closely with Marmozets and other burgeoning artists, eventually starting Wall of Sound PR from scratch in 2012. He is also a freelance journalist and has contributed to Drowned In Sound, The Skinny, The 405, The Metro and many more publications, whilst working on his own fiction writing in his spare time.

“Whilst we represent clients from a wide range of musical backgrounds, at its core Wall of Sound PR is based on a punk attitude – I care deeply about fostering a sense of community, working ethically and providing a fair deal for musicians and independent labels. A personal touch with members of the media and a genuine passion for our clients ensure that we strive to provide the best service possible on every campaign we take on.”

As the drummer of Worcester punk’n’roll band Fights and Fires, Lee has an innate knowledge of the life of a touring DIY musician and is especially well connected to the European underground music scene. Starting out at independent punk label Lockjaw Records, he progressed to running Worcester-based company Saviour PR before joining Wall of Sound PR in September 2015.

“Having met hundreds and hundreds of musicians through touring, you quickly realize that bands are complex things. Bands are understanding, passionate and try incredibly hard to accomplish their goals, but rarely get a fair deal. Every band is different, has different aims and wants to achieve many different things throughout their career. I strive to offer bands a fair deal, work hard, achieve results and gain as much coverage as I can. No jargon and no false promises.”

Based in the East Midlands, Chris got his start as a hired pen for some of our favourite specialist music sites including Shout4Music, Punktastic & Bring The Noise. After studying music at the University of Middlesex, Chris returned home to intern in a commercial PR agency and moonlight as a freelance publicist for various punk bands and record labels as well as playing bass in touring indie punk outfit Bad Ideas. Chris teamed up with Wall of Sound in January 2017.

“My experiences as a writer, editor, promoter and musician have taught me how important it is to trust the people you work with.  I enjoy nothing more than having a hand in the success of the bands on my roster and will always work as hard as I can to help them achieve their goals.”
