Helping sell hard tickets to our clients’ concerts is one of our chief concerns.

Working six weeks in advance, we support each date by blanketing all relevant media within a 75-100 mile radius of the venue. And we don’t just send out news releases and press kits—we follow up with phone calls aggressively pursuing features, covers and reviews on each date.

Our tour press is supported by state-of-the-art database technology and veteran, media-savvy publicists. It is worth noting that when our efforts sell just 15 extra tickets per date, our fee is covered!

T. Oslin, Ronnie Milsap, the Oak Ridge Boys, Eddie Rabbitt, Earl Thomas Conley, Eddy Arnold, Keith Whitley, Foster & Lloyd, the O’Kanes, Waylon Jennings, Restless Heart and many others.

Morris resigned from RCA in 1994 to join the thriving independent publicity firm The Press Office.
