Tom Rush

Some of our all-star clients:

As you can see by the photo above, I am an artist myself.  I have been working in the music industry professionally for over fifteen years learning the ins and outs of what the industry is truly all about. I have appeared on national television shows, toured with major performers and have won multiple awards. I will provide you with my first hand experience in this industry. As a marketing professional, I have been in public relations for over ten years with hundreds of successful clients. I get what it is like to be an artist just starting out with a very minimal budget. I am here to make it feasible for an artist or company that is just beginning to obtain the marketing push that it needs. I am so happy to announce the Launch of Starving Artist Promotions!

I recommend her to all of you who do not have a lot of money but still want quality marketing."

          -- Sahara Recording Studio

"Since Laura is an artist herself, she really understands the music industry and what it is like to be an artist.  She is different than most PR companies because she can coach you as an artist in things as simple as being interviewed by a radio station. Her industry contacts and networking ability really help along with her incredible marketing skills. Laura is also a fantastic and respected singer.  I would use Laura's services again and again."

"Being a musician, I love that Laura gets what the industry is like.  Since working with her, she has shown me a new side to the music world.  I have booked tons of new events and people actually know who I am now. Starving Artist Promotions is the real deal."

"SAP has transformed our little theater into a well known place for parents to sign up their children to perform.  I am so thankful that Laura took on my idea and grew it so much."

Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, “Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences.” Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47® concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.

Brad Cole

Cole's passionate and distinctive delivery of roots-based folk music, woven with the grit and groove of old school bossa and rhythm & blues moves the listener’s soul in a direction that is unexpected, yet perfectly familiar.

Cole has shared stage with a range of immensely talented artists such as Chris Stapleton, Shovels and Rope, Ingrid Michaelson, Dave Davies, Ari Hest, Dan Navarro, Ellis Paul and Will Kimbrough.
