In tune. Informed. Indispensable.

A selection of testimonials from labels or managers for the period January 2017-January 2018

We were really happy with the response to our Record Of The Day feature and that the track ended up as Record Of The Week also. We noticed a tangible difference in pick-up of the single around the time of the feature and also a lot of outreach from useful contacts and support for the campaign. Would definitely work with RotD on a piece again.

After you added a beautifully written feature about Harry Pane's latest release, Here We Stay, I was pleasantly surprised to see evidence of the clout the publication has.  I was contacted by many interesting industry bods including pluggers, A&R and producers and it resulted in a publishing deal through a major label.  Thank you ROTD!"
Natalie Earle - NEArtist Management

Having one of our releases featured as ROTD has proved an excellent resource for us, especially when launching brand new artists on their debut single. What other means do you have to get in front of so many industry folk before they've even had their first cup of coffee?
Alex Bean, 37 Adventures – Featured Artists – Jones, Salute & Geowulf

The ROTD feature for the Hannah Jane Lewis single Raincheck really helped generate global industry awareness of the track. We were subsequently approached by various people with offers of live shows and promotional opportunities which all helped make this initial part of the campaign a great success.
Matthew Rumbold, Tileyard Management

Since ROTD featured “Sister” by Janileigh Cohen, we have had a welcome slew of opportunities come in for Janileigh, including management, publicity, producers and agents. We are now in negotiations with a number of industry professionals whom will be bringing further value to Janileigh’s career. This is all thanks to ROTD and it’s incredible database.
Alex Pilkington, Funnel Music

The ROTD feature on William The Conqueror worked really well for us as a label and we subsequently had plenty of contact from many different areas of the business that helped us immensely with the ongoing album campaign.
Tom Bridgewater, Loose Music

As a manager who looks after self-releasing artists, I always make RotD part of all my artists release plans. It has proven to be looked at by many influential people and I have had loads of interest and contact from this essential tool. Featured tracks: Velcro by Jerry Williams; Revolving Doors by Michael Baker; I'm Not In Love With You by Jerry Williams
Jeff Powell, Big Hug Management

I love RotD.  A daily indispensable digest of so much essential information. And, I know I'm not alone. So many of my colleagues and peers find it equally useful.

Whenever our music is featured, it always adds a sense of occasion to the campaign. A brilliant way to bring our music to the attention of the entire business.
Tom Lewis, Managing Director, Decca

The ROTD feature for Penny Police back in May was a massive boost for us and an artist we are totally in love with, and have been working with a few years, but who is based in Denmark. It helped get the radar blipping with industry in the UK head of an EP in the new year and album later next year. The respect ROTD has with industry both at home and abroad was a great weapon in the PR arsenal. Thanks guys.
Chris Sheehan, Karousel Music – Featured Artist – Penny Police

Both my artists Mark Elliott and Nick Wilson were featured on ROTD this year, I cant recommend them enough, they were so easy to work with and seemed like the really cared about both the features. We received detailed write ups, and the response we had was amazing. On the day the feature went live, i had multiple emails from many various people within the music industry expressing thier interest in both my artists. I personaly think ROTD is definitely an important part of any release strategy.
Bjorn Franklin, Fairweather MGMT

ROTD has been a great platform for me, and has become a necessity for me as an unsigned artist when releasing new music. I’ve gained so many connections in terms of management and beyond.
Lauren Hibberd, Independent Artist

Having had acts featured by the editorial team at RotD has, on numerous occasions, elicited a range of curious parties getting in touch from across the industry, and more so than spending thousands on PR, from the reactions to being featured, I can only assume the people that read RotD seem to actually... listen to the tracks too, imagine that.
Ally McCrae, Two Up MGMT & Radio

Just a quick update as a matter of courtesy to let you know we had some very very respected UK music industry legends reach out today after reading Record of the Day. Will tell you more over a pint but it’s been a brilliant response and it’s not even lunchtime!!
