Cannonball PR communicates entertainment and culture stories to media through publicity and word of mouth. We ensure content is at its highest point of excellence by offering consultancy for each and every part of the creative process which goes into making a brand, a modern day artist or cultural event.
Launched in 2004 by founder Jamie Danan, with a vision to offer solutions and stepping stones for new and unknown artists along with augmenting the success of more established acts. With a background in journalism and then as a publicist for many major music artists and independent film releases, Jamie built a reputation that proved Cannonball PR have an ethos that is dedicated, and results driven. With an exuberant style and esteemable PR skills, alongside years of experience in delivering innovative, dynamic press and marketing campaigns which help transition exciting emerging talent into definitive, resonant acts who create significant cultural moments for modern times.
Specialising in UK national and regional print, radio and online campaigns carefully tailored to the personality of each artist: whether launching that first blog premiere, landing an impactful magazine and newspaper feature, coveted BBC Radio support and Spotify curated playlist inclusion, 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 on honesty, 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 tap into major and indie labels as well as unsigned acts, but crucially allow 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.
“Thank you for showing me that some people in the industry do what they say they’re going to do, do it well, & actually seem to care about trying to get results. You are that rare creature: a bloody good PR person. Thank you for caring, for keeping your promises & for being so excellent.” Kirsty McGee, All The Bees
