What can I write for you?

Almost a year ago, I gave up the legwork of PR (as in promoting to the media, maintaining relations with the media, mingling with concertgoers and the venues' personnel, etc.). But I never gave up writing the kinds of things I wrote as a music publicist, and recently I've written a few new pieces.

Reverend TJ McGlinchey bio:

(I also wrote a Reverend TJ McGlinchey blurb, which was published briefly but subsequently replaced with the full bio. If the blurb is ever published again, I will provide a link to it).

And this is a press release I've written for the Damien Anthony Band. Damien can do whatever he wants with it, but this is the press release as I wrote it:

Damien Anthony Band’s “Making The Album” Show Coming November 3rd

The Damien Anthony Band is one of the most dynamic groups to hit the Philly music scene in recent years. Damien Anthony is not simply an intelligent singer/songwriter, a raw rocker, a soul man, or a funk master; he is all of these things at once. His instantly identifiable voice and amiable stage presence, combined with the entire band’s excellent musicianship, have made for numerous successful performances at local venues including Downstairs at World CafĂ© Live in Philadelphia. The group’s many fans have been waiting for an album and now, their wait is coming to an end. Not only that, a lucky few will have a chance to hear the album as it is being recorded.

On Saturday, November 3rd, the Damien Anthony Band will present a “Making The Album” show at Studio Crash in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. Only 20 attendees will be able to witness this historic occasion. As Damien is known for singing, “Do you want this?”
