Proven methods for scaling PR & Marketing without spending ££££'s

Are you sick of struggling to grow your band profile and ready to get off the rock ‘n’ roll rollercoaster?

When you started your band and began releasing your own original music it’s likely you had visions of building something you were proud of. With the means to self manage music promotion with DIY PR and marketing campaigns maybe you thought it might be simpler than it actually is.

The reality is that there are thousands of bands and music artists all trying to achieve the same goals with limited and staggered windows of opportunities. Without the best possible strategy, connections, resources, and effort necessary to run a successful pr and marketing campaign, it can sometimes all too easily feel like a fruitless venture.

The temptation to hire an expert and spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of pounds with PR and marketing agencies or even seemingly “too good to be true” deals can seem like the answer. However, it’s likely it’s not the right thing for you nor do you have an endless stream of money to fund promotion campaigns that don’t guarantee success.

With an abundance of information on the internet, going DIY is the most realistic option for many bands and musicians, however it can be an overwhelming process and often feel impossible to manage whilst maintaining your passion for music and sustaining a happy lifestyle.

Toby Jepson


"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
WaterBear - The College Of Music
"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."
Terri Chapman
RPM Management - Massive Wagons
“Rob is a passionate guy, whose enthusiasm for the bands and music he represents shines through in his work.”
Nick Ruskell
Kerrang! Magazine
“Rob has a natural instinct for this work and is, above everything, a brilliant reader of people. Stampede represents the tip of the spear when it comes to modern day PR and Social Media.”
Toby Jepson Planet Rock

Planet Rock / Wayward Sons
“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.”
Ally Dickaty & Danny Dolan
The Virginmarys
“Rob is passionate about our scene and advocating for new bands, and always operates with professionalism and drive.”
Eleanor Goodman
Metal Hammer
“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."
