Over 25 years, we’ve introduced some incredible artists to US college radio. Many of them have gone on to do brilliant things, so we wanted to shout a few of them out.
BTS are one of the biggest bands in the world right now, with an enormous international fanbase (hey there BTS ARMY!). We’re proud to say that we helped make that happen – we did their first radio promotion in the US!
We got to be part of the now mega-pop star’s career SUPER early on: we worked her first single and album. We also marketed her run on the Warped Tour!
Twenty One Pilots
For this one, we’re turning back time to the good old days…
Twenty One Pilots became a cathartic voice for many younger millennials. Back in 2015, we brought their breakout single “Blurryface” to college radio!
Singer, rapper and actor Janelle Monáe is a creative force of nature. Through her art, she has broken barriers for several communities, and shaped the sound of modern R&B. Back in 2008, we worked her EP Metropolis Suite I “The Chase”.
Nowadays, Bon Iver is sort of the patron saint of modern indie folk. But early in his career, we had the pleasure of promoting “For Emma, Forever Ago” to radio. You may remember that album for songs like “Skinny Love and “Flume”.
We’ve still got the Electric Feels for MGMT, years after we worked their album “Oracular Spectacular”. That was the album that shot them to fame, with songs like “Kids”, “Time to Pretend” and “Electric Feel”.
We talk about her a lot, but we really loved working with Courtney Barnett back in 2013. She has since established herself as one of indie’s sharpest voices, and released a record this year called Things Take Time, Take Time.
Arlo is a more recent favourite of ours, and we’ve loved watching her meteoric rise over the last couple of years. She just got nominated for TWO Grammys, one for her record “Collapsed in Sunbeams” – we helped get it several number ones on the NACC Chart!
