Testimonials from Muddy Paw PR clients

“This is the most press we’ve gotten to date!” –Shiffley

“Muddy Paw PR is amazing for the up and coming artist. Angela is great at what she does and we are very much looking forward to working with Angela and Muddy Paw PR in the future.” –The Go Ahead

“There is so much to say about what Angela did for our band. As a newer band, we needed a lot of help just getting our branding straight, and Angela’s in-depth interview process really got us off on the right start by helping us develop our own business plan and also set goals to get us where we needed to go. She wrote us a fantastic bio, and was able to put into words what we had been trying to explain about ourselves but couldn’t.

We would hire Angela again in a heartbeat, she was worth every penny.” –Constant Coogan

"With Angela’s guidance we were able to grow as a band and learn lessons about how to interact with press and individuals in a way that we’ve been able to carry with us well after our campaign. Working with Angela was one of the best investments we’ve made as a band and we can’t wait to return for our next release." –HereComeHere

“Angela and Muddy Paw PR were/are fantastic to work with! We have not regretted a single day since hiring them!" -Jeremy, Shadow Of Whales

“When I was planning to release my first EP under a new artist name, I knew I needed to create an entirely new online presence for my music, and that I couldn’t do it alone. It was a daunting task, but luckily for me, I teamed up with Angela. Not only did she hook me up with interviews, reviews, and track-by-tracks on sites big and small, but she kept me updated with our progress every step of the way. I couldn’t recommend her enough to other indie artists. She’s the full package: professional, prompt, and thorough!” –Mikel, Dream Arcade

“Great Highway was extremely lucky to work with Angela at Muddy Paw. We were impressed by the level of commitment and enthusiasm she showed for our work, and felt that she took care to listen to our individual needs as an artist; there was a sense that she took pains to think of the best strategy for each of her clients. Above all, it was refreshing to work with somebody so communicative, respectful and thorough–all qualities that are hard to come by in the music industry!” –Sarah, Great Highway
"Without a doubt, Angela was invaluable in helping us get our album off the ground. She went above and beyond the call for us, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for PR help on their next project.” –Martin Stubbs, Yellabird

"I would highly recommend Angela's PR services to any artist or band, as my experience with her was a great one!"Katie Garibaldi (singer-songwriter)
