Testimonials

“The Music Gallery hired Rebecca Webster of Webster Media Consulting to help with publicity and media relations for our fifth annual X AVANT New Music Festival this past fall, 2010. Rebecca was a pleasure to work with, an enthusiastic and engaged partner who really understood the somewhat arcane and highbrow concept behind our festival. She knew which journalistic champions to target and which media outlets would be supportive. Her advice on our use of social media was very valuable – and remains so. Rebecca’s efforts came through with real results – not only did we have the centre spread in Eye Weekly, with two supportive editorial pieces alongside our advertising sponsorship, the boosted media profile resulted in increased word of mouth and a huge spike in attendance – an increase of 95% over the previous year! We look forward to working with Rebecca again in future.”

“I worked with Rebecca when her client, Patrick Watson, won the Polaris Music Prize in 2007. She is without a doubt one of the smartest and hardest working music publicists in the country. A lot of publicists claim to get results but she actually does. No detail is left to chance, and no possibility goes unanticipated.”

 

Steve Jordan, Founder and Executive Director. Polaris Music Prize

 


 

“I hired Rebecca to set up and run the Artist and Media Relations Department for Fusion3 Distribution for English Canada. She is an extremely well organized and very connected individual, who has a very good work ethic and digs in the corners to bring in opportunitites that most would not bring to the table. The benefits of her work at Fusion3 were felt immediately and helped support and increase awareness, fans and sales for many domestic and international artists.”

“Rebecca Webster is an excellent professional publicist. She is thorough, organized, flexible, has cultivated many solid media relationships. Her depth of experience and her French-language abilities have repeatedly proven valuable. More than anything, Rebecca has a special ability to thoughtfully get to the heart of a project and formulate stories with depth, pitch those stories, and deliver results. I have hired her to manage a variety of projects, and would hire her again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend Rebecca Webster and her work.”
