Thanks 2011. That was awesome.
It was a year to remember at StageFright Publicity. The company continued to focus on only working with records I love – a policy that keeps me honest, excited and motivated. This year’s runaway success stories included working on the acclaimed Bon Iver album, Austra’s breakthrough debut Feel It Break and fulfilling a long-standing dream of working with Liam Gallagher and his new band Beady Eye.
Domestically speaking – StageFright Publicity artists were very popular with this year’s Polaris Music Prize jurors with seven albums being included on their long list. Those albums were: Austra’s Feel It Break, Louise Burns’ Mellow Drama, One Hundred Dollars’ Songs Of Man, The Rural Alberta Advantage’s Departing, PS I Love You’s Meet Me At The Muster Station, Young Galaxy’s Shapeshifting and Little Scream’s The Golden Record – for those keeping score.
Already looking forward to 2012 – StageFright Publicity will be busy working on new records from PS I Love You, Young Galaxy, Cuff The Duke and many, many more.
In an effort to reduce the number of wires in the StageFright Publicity office – we have streamlined our phone numbers. Consult the contact page for more info. Call us – we’ll chat.
