"Great work, was buzzing with what Sean & High Violet got for us and we're looking forward to working together again in the future"
"Massive thanks to Sean and Lynsey who did a great PR job for us, including radio play on Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 6 Music show, MARVELLOUS"
"I'm impressed! Amazing! What you've done is incredible and I can't thank you enough!"
"Thanks for everything on the Shaking Chains promo campaigns. Genuinely super impressed, hope to work on something again with you soon. High Violet PR & Plugging
refreshes the ears other pluggers cannot reach. Sean and Lynsey ran an excellent worldwide radio campaign for the Shaking Chains debut album. They literally got the music out everywhere"
"Sean was a pleasure to work with! Everytime I reached out, he was right on top of it, I never had to wait or wonder what was going on with my project and he always made me feel like I could ask questions. Thank you Sean for being such a professional and all round great company. I'd recommend him and High Violet PR & Plugging to ANYONE looking for results with their music!"
“Sean worked with us on the single releases for our second album ‘Cavalcade’ and got great results, including BBC Radio 6 Music playlisting and a Steve Lamacq round table for ‘Don’t Mind’.”
"Things have always popped up in my career especially when things seem have gone quiet and I have inadvertently escaped the musical radar. Aside from the big hit, breaks like ‘The F Word‘ for example, came along and stuck around on the Gordon Ramsey show of the same name for years, helping fund the more enjoyable quest for Babybird to be as experimental as it was when it intended to be when it started.
Later, Johnny Depp came along and rescued a second dip in my fortunes and kept the beast running screaming into twenty plus years in music. Sean Crossey is one of those wonderful people that enter into your life just because they love it. Though obviously it helps, money is not the goal. Instead it’s passion and belief. I haven’t met Sean yet but our cyber interactions, became from the very first word written, a bloody pleasure. I love folk like Sean. He put me back on the radio.”
"Sean and Lynsey at High Violet PR & Plugging did a great job and got a lot of radio play from stations that we haven't reached before. I was really happy with the results!"
"Working with Sean and High Violet PR & Plugging has really helped us to connect with an international audience at a time when travel has been impossible due to the pandemic, giving the campaign a push to help nurture follows, likes and plays all over the globe.
He’s a top lad , who has a wonderful dislike of the Tories and will always let you know what kind of shoes he's wearing on any given day (they’re always dead stylish too).
Sean also models and dresses better than most of the bands he works with, apart from us.
High Violet come highly recommended."
"High Violet offer a clear and consistent pathway for the campaign that you’re after. The real-time, transparent results process is great for bands and artists wanting to see where the engagement is taking place. Responsive, efficient and bang for your buck definitely achieved. Sean and Lynsey were a pleasure to deal with – keep up the good work!"
"All my numbers, across everything, are well up and had more pre-orders for the vinyl than I expected so thanks so much for your work getting it out there!"
"We were excited to work with Sean from the beginning, but what stuck out immediately was how much time he was putting into us. We're a pretty new group so it was surprising to see how dedicated he was to get us coverage. He was in touch on a weekly basis, letting us know the progress of our EP and who had just reviewed it or what radio station was playing it internationally. We've received countless radio plays globally and write-ups directly because of his actions. I look forward to working with High Violet PR & Plugging again."
"I was delighted with Sean and Lynsey's work on the campaign for my single 'Sugarface'. Their obvious passion for music cuts through to the work that they do and I was impressed with the widespread global attention that they managed to attract, expanding our fanbase throughout Europe and America."
"Both Sean and Lynsey were exceptionally professional and helpful with promoting my album. I’ll certainly be using their services again in the future."

”This went far better than the Trump-campaign, Im very happy about that”
"After realeasing our album early in 2017 to good critical acclaim we wanted to reach out beyond our regular audience and reach parts of the globe we were yet to tap into. Sean and Lynsey at High Violet PR & Plugging did a great job of helping us with this, getting airplay on stations we love like KEXP and our record featured track by track in the highly influential Drowned in Sound. We've definitely sold more records and had more opportunites offered from the great work they've done. We'll be back with High Violet for the next record!"
"Sean and Lynsey from High Violet PR & Plugging have been such a pleasure to work with. In this industry it's not everyday that you come across people that truly care about their service, what a breath of fresh air. They truly do get great results."

"Sean and Lynsey did a great job of getting our new single out to radio stations and audiences that we wouldn't have been able to achieve on our own. Getting playlists on stations such as KEXP, KCRW and Billboard was a major boost for us, as our music has been played to our target audience and helped spread our brand in various parts of the world. We would definitely recommend High Violet to other bands looking to increase their fan base."
"High Violet PR & Plugging are wonderful and worked very hard at giving our album radio play in many different countries around the world. They also organised some great radio interviews on a national UK station and in America. They are doing a great job in helping artists who would rather stay independent. We would definitely recommend them!"
"I hired High Violet PR & Plugging for a bespoke radio campaign for a recent single. I was more than happy with the results that they achieved, securing me airplay on so many stations across multiple countries.

I look forward to working with them again in the future."
"The success of this record and the campaign in general has taken our record to places it would never have gone had High Violet not been involved. To get emails and messages from all over the world and to be played on SO many radio stations, this has allowed us to open doors we never thought possible. Looking forward to working on the next campaign, much love."
"High Violet PR & Plugging have been great for our group, they're exactly what we were looking for. Great friendly service, and we've got listeners from radio stations from all around the world listening to our track!

"Working with High Violet PR & Plugging for the release of our Jagged Tooth Crook album was the first time we’d ever used a PR or plugging company so we were a bit hesitant - however our experience with Sean and the team surpassed our expectations. We received daily updates on social media whenever our tracks had been playlisted or featured in publications. By the end of the campaign we’d been played on over 80 radio stations across 19 countries (including KEXP, BBC Radio 6 Music, RTL2 and other high profile international tastemakers). We couldn’t be happier with the results."
The Two Man Travelling Medicine Show
"When I sent Sean and Lynsey 'A Snake's A Snake' I had no idea that they'd even take on our little Folk/Punk songs as I wasn't sure we were really radio friendly. Not only did they welcome us with open arms but they managed to get us played coast to coast in America and all over the globe. The response we had to the single has been nothing short of miraculous and I can't thank the High Violet PR & Plugging team enough. If you have a good tune and want it heard everywhere, don't delay, get these two on it."
"With a vinyl release for Record Store Day approaching, we needed radio airplay and exposure and that’s exactly what we got. Sean was all over it and got our music out there!"

"Sean and Lynsey from High Violet PR and Plugging have been a pleasure to work with over the past 8 weeks and have done a fantastic job of getting my new E.P. 'Johnny Was' out to a global audience ahead of the release. Play-listed on KEXP and KCRW amongst many other stations and media outlets, playing and featuring news of the release, spanning China, America, Ireland, UK, Argentina, Canada, Germany, Australia, France, Netherlands, Greece, Croatia, Poland, Turkey, New Zealand and more!
This was all in the run up to my launch show in Belfast and the release. I've also had more opportunities through the work the guys do, new followers, fans and contacts. Sean and Lynsey are a very hard working team who have a passion for music and I would highly recommend using them if you have a release coming out, I'll certainly be using them again in the future"
Colin White, Vinyl Revival
"If you want to take the stress out of promoting a release then contact the professionals. Sean and Lynsey are on top of their game.

The enthusiasm and high level of service from High Violet was second to none. A pleasure to work with."

I'm delighted that it's had air play literally all over the world. It's made all the hard work in making my music worth it. Huge thanks to Sean and Lynsey for everything they did for me"
"We are Red Menace Records a startup Indie label with no visible profile to speak of. We were launching our first act, Victories, a young Rock band who also had next to no profile, so any PR campaign would have to start from scratch. We chose High Violet PR & Plugging due to the enthusiasm they showed towards Victories and their belief that they could achieve good results for us with their database of contacts.
We were very impressed by the level of service we received throughout the campaign. Both Sean and Lynsey regularly updated us of any developments or angles that they were trying on our behalf. Over an 8 week period we picked up a large number of radio playlists and magazine or website reviews, including a couple of large influential stations in the States. Victories have been interviewed live on US radio and had a review in a major US Rock publication. Thanks to High Violet we have greatly increased awareness of Victories. Promotors are contacting us regularly for gigs and their social media following has grown substantially too. We would recommend High Violet to anybody looking for a hard working promotion team that doesn't cost the earth. You'll get well looked after and have the assurance that these guys really do try to get results."
"High Violet PR & Plugging certainly know what they're doing, they look after each artist and tailor each campaign to their needs. Sean & Lynsey are a great team of shiny happy people! We trust them, the world is theirs, Music is Love"
"If you're interested in getting your music heard internationally, High Violet PR & Plugging is the place, recommended!"

Sean and Lynsey really put the work in for us on our second album campaign with 'Blood Orange' and we achieved some outstanding results. We've had our music played all over the world and gained fans across several continents which led to some great opportunities. Cannot recommend these guys enough and their hands on approach is commendable. We'll definitely be using High Violet again on our forthcoming singles."
"I've worked with Sean on two of my release campaigns over the last 4 years to some great critical acclaim and worldwide radio play. I have have to say High Violet has been no exception and has even exceeded my expectations for the release of my latest single. Great people, professional attitude and highly recommended"
"High Violet PR & Plugging is definitely the place to go to get your music heard globally. Professional and always approachable, top people with the know how that has helped us to progress in the industry."
"Sean and High Violet have been a real force in promoting San Eco's debut album release on Beatphreak Recordings. They have got behind us in an enthusiastic and committed manner, and with a worldwide network of radio stations and online music publications, have been able to use a blanket approach, which has resulted in our music not only being playlisted on radio stations across the world, but has also given our release drive and momentum. I would highly recommend High Violet to any artists looking to establish or widen their audience throughout any release campaign."
"Sean has a great and vast list of contacts, including head honchos at Man City. He managed to secure us a place on the stage at The Etihad on two separate occasions which was mental.
Take all the music stuff away and he's a top bloke, easy to get on with and a good laugh which is a rarity in this industry full of money grabbing arseholes. Can't speak highly enough of him and we're currently plotting our next two singles with him."
Kids On Bridges
"If you're looking for someone to promote your music, look no further than Sean and Lynsey at High Violet. Their passion and commitment to the job they do is second to none and most importantly everything they do is done with a love for music and an understanding of what a band needs. We have seen our profile grow across the world due to Sean placing our music with key tastemakers and with each release the campaign grows stronger and stronger. Our current release hit 22 in the Alt Charts and 112 on the National and this was due to their hard work and commitment to our music. We have had our tunes played on some of the biggest national stations around the world in places we haven't even visited. Sean's also always on the look out to give bands live opportunities at The Etihad. For me, you should never trust someone who doesn't have a record collection who works in the industry and Sean has possibly the best one I've seen, book with them, nuff said!!"
Buffalo Sunn's label Reekus Records
"Thanks to Sean and Lynsey for helping to get Buffalo Sunn's music heard in a wide range of places, from the UK through Europe, the US and even South America. We're looking forward to working with them again and again!"

Drew McIntosh, The Grizzlar Coffee & Records
"The Grizzlar Coffee & Records release international Punk and Rock records in Canada, through our Rock n Roll coffee roaster in Edmonton, AB. As a new Canadian based label with a uniquely international focus, we needed to find someone with a long reach to get the records we are working on heard by as many people as possible. Sean and Lynsey at High Violet Pr & Plugging promised a lot and definitely delivered. Two campaigns with The Scrags (Stockholm) and Canibales (Guadalajara) have given us an amazing foundation to work from with radio play and play-listing around the world. A great album needs to be heard, and you should hire someone to make that happen. We will be calling High Violet again in the near future to help us push further releases from The Grizzlar Records."
"High Violet PR put a brilliant package together for us. The great thing is that they post regular updates on their Facebook page so even though you get a report, you can track how things are going daily as well. We got some great placements worldwide - Germany's no. 1 radio station 1LIVE being a highlight - and Turnstiles got many more followers on Spotify during the campaign. The cherry on top was another band from Los Angeles getting in touch as they heard a track on the radio in L.A. and they are now signed to the label."
Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets, The Lovers, The Karpets)
"Sean's new PR company is an exciting new business start up in the heady world of music promotion, with his track record, it should be sure of a successful, funky future."
