Stampede Press UK

Hi there, my name's Rob Town

I’m here to help musicians and bands get noticed by the press/media, music industry and real music fans. 

I have over 30 years experience as a musician, playing at both grassroot and super high levels. During my time in the UK band ‘Panic Cell’ I was fortunate enough to share stages and tour the world with some of the biggest rock and metal acts of our era.

As a music business owner and QUALIFIED Master of Art in Music Industry Innovation and Enterprise, I regularly work with musicians to help them achieve their goals and adapt in what is a fast moving business. PR and marketing are just some of the services I offer.

I am a mentor / coach / tutor and strongly believe the music industry is a human experience that needs to be carefully navigated and managed. #KnowledgeIsPower #PositiveMindset

A champion of music education, I teach at WaterBear – The College of Music in Brighton where I educate University students about the music industry and Digital Culture (past, present, and future).

Finally, I applaud anyone that wants to make music a key part of their lifestyle, because I’m proof that success is possible IF you have the know-how and confidence needed to navigate music business.

Want to know more? See below. I look forward to working with you.

Testimonials

"I have worked with Rob Town for a few years now. Rob's been around the block in the business many times - he's a born survivor, having seen and adapted to all the changes in the music industry over the last 20 years. Rob is a true innovator and I can't think of anyone better to advise emerging acts on strategy, growing an audience and formulating realistic and obtainable goals. He thinks long term, tells the truth and is not afraid of hard work. Get in touch and see what he can do for you and your music."
Bruce John Dickinson

"As the singer of Panic Cell, I have experienced first hand Rob's (or Bobby, as I know him) passion and commitment to finding the best ways to move a band forward. He expertly navigated us through many of the pitfalls that come with promoting an act, and in the years following where I have worked with everyone from Florence and the Machine to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Machine Head, I have not found anyone with a better grasp on the fundamentals of band related press, PR and marketing!"
Luke Bell
Machine Head TM / Panic Cell
"I have had the pleasure of working alongside Rob for many years, he is one of the good guys and is constantly evolving through this ever changing industry, staying ahead of the game. Rob's advice and knowledge have helped me no end and I couldn’t recommend him enough."

“We love working with Stampede. Rob has been invaluable to us in the last couple of years, he’s without doubt one of ‘the good guys.’ He’s great at what he does and he cares a lot about the acts he works with.”

"In an industry of untrustworthy people, Rob is a breath of fresh air, and I’m happy to recommend him to any musicians that are looking to climb the ladder and work with a reputable PR agency on their press. The fact that Rob was a successful musician before setting up Stampede Press means he really understands how the industry works. He knows what can be achieved and will always put his heart and soul (and a lot of effort) into any campaign he takes on. He’s open and honest, and most of all, he’s human and he cares about the results he gets for you."

“Rob is one of the good guys in the music industry, which (sadly) is a rarity in our experience. So we were honoured to work with him and put our trust in him. We’d work with him again in a heart beat!”

“The honesty, integrity and enthusiasm behind the service that we have received is second to none and it is clear that Rob is pulling on the kind of experience that is only accrued through many years working within the music industry.”
Carl Davis

“In a world of spin, and over-promising and a fair few false dawns, Rob is the tonic that every young band can benefit from. He’s been through it as a musician himself, he’s seen the trap doors, the big pitches and the empty promises. He has bottled his passion for music, mixed it with the realism of how the scene works and backed up his music industry advice with a University qualification. He won't always tell a band what it wants to hear, and he’ll challenge a few to really examine what good really looks like. But we need more of this shaping the scene today. Success is not about quick wins or chasing the rainbow of fame - it's about original music, sustained momentum and building trusted relationships that last the distance. If you want to win the marathon not the sprint, Rob is your man."
