Launched in 2004 by founder Jamie Danan, whose previous experience as a music and culture journalist and then as a PR manager across major music and film titles, with a vision to offer solutions and stepping stones for new and unknown artists along with the continuing success of more established acts. Through hard work and an honest reputation Cannonball PR was kept small but dedicated with the help of Kevin Marston (Napster, Record Of The Day) and then the addition of the terrific Terry Emm whose exuberant passion for music and PR has helped continue the nurturing nature of the PR we do. Our style and PR skills are fast becoming legendary as our experience and reputation for delivering innovative, dynamic press campaigns which help transition exciting emerging talent into definitive, resonant acts for modern times is somewhat unique.
We are a small but passionate team, specialising in UK national and regional print, radio and online campaigns which are carefully tailored to the personality of each artist: whether launching that first blog premiere or landing an impactful magazine or newspaper feature, or coveted BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music support, we believe in the need to work creatively and strategically within the rapidly-changing media landscape, ensuring that both our new and returning artists remain on the frontline of what PR means today. Above all, we are music geeks who thrive off honesty and transparency, diligence and detail, and are privileged to have curated an eclectic roster ranging from rock and indie through to hip hop and grime, country and folk, jazz and blues, electronic and pop, which taps into all the major and independent labels as well as unsigned acts, but crucially allows us the freedom to only work on that which we love and truly believe adds to the quality of music output in the world we want to live in.
