Q: What is Earshot Media?
A: Earshot is an independent publicity company specializing in alternative, indie, punk, hardcore metal and ska music. Our proven track record and hands-on, grass-roots, one-on-one approach to working a project from the ground up is what sets us apart from other PR Firms. In addition to "working" the larger national media outlets, we also pay equal attention to the fanzines, regional press and online media outlets.
Q: What type of experience do you have in music publicity?
A: Prior to going independent in 1998, Earshot founder Mike Cubillos worked at various record companies such as Mercury Records, Zoo Entertainment/BMG, Way Cool/MCA. In the past, he's worked with such artists as Tool, The Cardigans, Avenged Sevenfold, The All-American Rejects, Face to Face, Nashville Pussy, Roni Size Reprazent, Rusted Root, Matthew Sweet, The Ataris, Goldfinger, Reel Big Fish, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Juliana Hatfield and major tours such as Rockstar Taste of Chaos, Take Action and Viva Lam Bam.

Q: How do I get added to your mailing list?
A: We work with all media outlets including national print publications, fanzines, webzines, TV, etc. If you're a print magazine that would like to be added to our mailing list, please send us a copy of the publication, along with all pertinent contact info. If you're a webzine, email us with the URL and contact info.
Q: I'm in an unsigned band and we're looking to hire a publicist..
A: Earshot is open to all kinds of music, but we primarily work bands that are already signed to either an indie or major label. We generally don't work with unsigned artists-- that is, unless we're totally blown away by your stuff.
Q: I'm with a label or in a signed band and we're looking to hire a publicist..
A: Drop us a line via email and/or send a package along with any old press clips, a current cd, etc. to our mailing address. If we dig it we'll be in touch.
