"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!"

"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."

“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."
