Job Title: Owner
Company: Pure Rawk
Description: After discovering a lack of coverage for new alternative bands in 2006, I started up my own online publication. Since starting the site I have developed key contacts and links within the alternative music industry such as other publications, press and PR contacts, venue managers, festival organisers as well as record label contacts. I also effectively manage all social media accounts with Pure Rawk (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Reverbnation and more) posting timely updates and create discussion.
I source new bands through talent scouting (going to events) around the UK and also on recommendation from peers. I co-ordinate reviewers and photographers around the country to optimise the opportunities to review and sometimes gain exclusive access. I also approach venues/promoters and press agents for gigs which I feel would be suitable to cover on the site. I also write promotional copy of bands that apply for advertising and create articles of news content, blogs and in-depth interviews.
I organise the Pure Rawk Awards every year for new, unsigned and independent alt artists. This takes place by online voting by the public for the new bands they feel have made an impact on the scene in the past year and the winners are revealed at a live event in London.
