Owned/Operated by Leanne Ridgeway, Mettle Media PR [Mettle Media LLC] works primarily within the heavy underground music worlds. I help guide bands and artists to reach the next step in their own careers. There is no sales pitch. I don’t promise lofty claims for multiple major magazine covers or platinum charting on Billboard, because I’m realistic & not a salesperson. Mettle Media PR is simply a first step towards your goals for your music, in an affordable experience of working with a publicist.
.
Every campaign plan is customized for each client to reach their next step, within their specific budget. There are no standard fee packages or services listed, because every client has different goals. You tell me what your needs are and we plan your campaign together, it’s straight forward as that.
.
Services include press release, bio or one-sheet writing, website development, social media presence and engagement, tour planning itineraries, or general consulting on how to present your works to the public. This can be a one-time campaign, multi-month PR plan, or ongoing for continuous services over a longer time frame.
.
Mettle Media PR has a limited clientele, I don’t work with just anyone who asks. It’s not about money, it’s about passion – the primary reason I started this. I work with people who create the music I love to listen to, because I believe that music should be heard. I want to help you put your music in the hands of those who seek to hear it.
