Big Pigeon Publicity was born out of the realization that most unsigned artists don't have an affordable avenue to take their song in to radio or even know it's an option! Up until recently radio servicing/publishing was done so in a very romantic way, via physical CD, however, the switch to digital has opened the flood gates for musician's submissions. Hiring a publicist shows the stations that you're serious about your music career. We also have a physical conversation with the music directors to ensure your music gets heard.
Label reps and publicists physically take a pressed copy of an artist’s single, EP or album into radio and play it with the stations head supervisor. In Triple J's case; Richard Kingsmill, Nick Findley or Gemma Pike. Most publicists will charge artists for flights to the radio station, press release writing, and accommodation in some circumstances as well as many additional costs associated with promotion of an artist’s release.
They will often try to get artists press write ups in blogs and various online mediums. This adds a huge cost and the reality is it doesn't convert people into 'real' fans. The return on investment (ROI) just isn't there with 99% of online mediums.
Big Pigeon Publicity ONLY focus on professional radio servicing, as if a single gets added to rotation on Triple J or commercial radio it will have huge rewards for an artist. We've cut out the things that all publicists charge highly for that don't earn an artist fans. As a result we've reduced the cost of professional radio servicing for Australian artists. You've put all this time, energy and money into making your music. Now make sure the right people hear it! If they don't know about it then they can't add it to rotation.
Please note that we cannot work with every artist as we only service music we feel is at a high enough standard. We don't want to waste the Station Music Supervisors time or your money if we know it won't be able to compete. Please inquire if you’d like us to have a listen and we can discuss your servicing plan.
You pick a date that you’d like us to service your single to radio. This date must be on a Tuesday, at least 2 weeks ahead of the date you book, and it is advisable that it occurs two weeks before your song is due to be publicly released.
We gather your assets; press release, cover art, and your music.
A publicist will sit down with the head radio programmer and play your song to them. We also provide copies to all relevant radio presenters at that station.
We then follow up accordingly.
Afterwards we provide you with feedback and hopefully the news that your single has been added to rotation!
"Before even mentioning a fee Isaac gave me scores of useful information and advice on how to best approach a radio station, when the best time to strike is, the best ways to be prepared and a lot of useful insights about the industry around it."
"Amazing service, I was genuinely so impressed, the response at Triple J was wicked as well through community radio nationally. Stoked with BPP."
""Isaac was incredibly helpful and reliable. He did everything he said he would do and more! We were really happy with our experience and not only did Isaac get our music out on new platforms but got us direct and meaningful feedback from major radio stations. It's hard to know sometimes with these things what's really going on and Isaac's transparency and professionalism was refreshing and impressive. Great service for indie artists looking to break out on radio and get their music out there!"
