"Having worked with Pomona for many years, the company remains
the most personable, reliable and media friendly you could wish for.
They realise the importance of keeping good contacts and giving exclusives
and the benefits they bring to all parties concerned. Experience counts
for much - and Pomona has it by the bucket load. Long may it continue."
"I've been the Post's music writer for the past 15 years and have
found the standard of service from PR companies as unpredictable as
a night out with a coach load of schizophrenics. Only a handful consistently
deliver exactly what I want - and avoid the time consuming, infuriating
calls and emails that I don't ("Have you reviewed that single?"
"Do you cover Hull?" etc.) Pomona is one of the handful. I
love those people."
"Good PR people are worth their weight in gold because the market
is saturated by people who are clueless as to what you need as a journalist.
I have always found Pomona to be a very professional outfit that knows
what you want and give you what you want when you need it, with no messing
around in between. They don't annoy you needlessly, as so many other
companies do, turning you against them and their artists regardless
of how good they may be. That's why they survive and I'd happily recommend
"Having worked with a large number of regional press representatives
over the years, I can honestly say that my many dealings with Pomona
have always been highly effective and above all a pleasure! I strongly
recommend Pomona to anyone looking for a professional and respectable
regional press company."
"I have had an excellent working relationship with Pomona for
over 10 years. As well as responding to enquiries promptly, they also
do so in a friendly no-nonsense manner. Unlike some companies, they
are happy to be pro-active in offering up interviews and gaining coverage
for their clients rather than simply responding to requests. Likewise
they are always upfront with the facts if interview time is unlikely
to be forthcoming rather than keeping you hanging on in the vague hope
that something might turn up. In terms of planning this is a huge bonus.
Far better to have a prompt 'no' than an interminable 'maybe'."
"I have worked with Pomona on two major regional publications
over several years and have built up a fantastic relationship with their
staff. Their approach to both their bands and to the media industry
is one of professionalism and goodwill. Not only do they prove that
they understand the requirements, constraints and demands of a weekly
magazine but they always manage to go the extra mile to ensure that
coverage of their roster is always appropriate and relevant to our readership.
Fantastically organised, they are clearly passionate about the artists
they act on behalf of and that shines through in everything they do."
''The level of commitment Pomona have to their artists is remarkable.
They're always on hand to supply whatever I need, are gracious, friendly
and always deliver! I love working with them!''
''As a music journalist you deal with literally hundreds of PRs. Some
are helpful, some aren't. Some make it seem like you're causing them
a mild inconvenience by even calling or emailing. Others are perfectly
willing to go the extra mile to get you what you need. Pomona is very
much in the latter category. I have been dealing with them for almost
10 years now and in that time there has always been a commitment to
ensuring that, despite limited time or access to artists sometimes,
that I get what I need to make a story the very best it can be. In a
world where hype and hyperbole is rampant, it is also refreshing to
deal with someone whose word you can trust, who pays attention to the
kind of publication you work for and what kind of artists suits your
readership. I guess the best thing is feeling like your dealing with
someone who has a clue (as a lot of PR companies I'm afraid to say do
not) more than just regurgitating press releases, there's a degree of
knowledge and enthusiasm for the music that seems genuine. It is organisations
like Pomona that make putting together magazines that little bit easier
