Duncan and Joss have repeatedly brought us great results in specialised genres, in both the reissue and contemporary spaces. They are professional and friendly, with a keen eye for opportunities. Working with them means I know we are in safe hands.
Duncan and his team did wonderful work for Jaimie Branch's Fly or Die II and Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown - both albums were received better in the UK than we could have imagined.
As well as being fantastic publicists with a hard-working attitude, the guys really understand the UK music environment, from retail to live, which has really helped us develop in the market.
Of all the publicists Salif has worked with, Ballantyne Communications worked the hardest and got the best results
Duncan's team handled Moreno Veloso’s release, an artist who rarely plays. Even so, we got a wonderful response thanks to their work.
Salif Keita's reputation as one of the heavyweights of African music comes with PR expectation. The project was given a creative energy, approached with a sense of possibility and ultimately gave Salif the attention he deserved by delivering interviews, radio features and press reviews
