From 1999-2009, music journalists and photographers have been sharing contact information at Music Press Report. This directory was the first attempt to present that information in one cohesive book.
Typical press contact lists have never provided enough information to target the right publications or members of the press, resulting in mass, blind emailing (spam).
The goal of the directory was to provide in-depth information on hundreds of music writers, photographers, print publications and web publications. Getting to know the music press in a more in-depth way helps everyone save time and money.
“That’s a superb piece of work. Quite comprehensive, but in particular, the statements explaining each one is a great idea. Really helpful for targeted communication. Brilliant. I’ll be recommending this.” - Andrew Dubber, NewMusicStrategies.com
“I must tell you that as a PR pro one of the most frustrating endeavors when you work with multiple industries is trying to find updated, relevant media lists–along with notes for how people want to be pitched. In addition, I nearly fell of my chair at the reasonable price!” - Rebekah Iliff, Smart Girls Consulting
