The subject of todays interview is Trauma PR - a London based music event promotion and artist development company!
Established in September 2016, the exciting music venture was founded by musician/music lover Justin Jackson with the aim of "creating a much needed supplement to bands and artists to showcase their music within London".
Many more successful events later and Trauma PR has grown a reputation as one of London's finest live music promoters, always putting the artist at the heart of what they do!
We caught up with Justin to find out more about his motivations, the history of Trauma PR and what's next for this passionate music company...
Please introduce yourself/Trauma PR...
My name is Justin I am the founder, promoter and organiser for Trauma PR.
When and why was Trauma PR founded?
I started from a PR because there was an absence of promoters and industry helping out and shining light on new and underground/unsigned within the London area. Everything seemed to come at a price and also with not much conviction or dedication to actually support bands, so I decided to start something that did.
You believe in putting in giving all artists a chance and giving them a fair deal financially - as a musician yourself, and from that perspective, why is this important?
It’s a great insight. I understand from the perspective of a promoter and also the perspective of a musician. Making sure both sides of the party get a fair deal is a crucial building block to help maintain and build the scene.
