Keith Hamilton I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for the way you worked on my Christmas song release.
It’s so nice in this industry to find someone as genuine and honest as yourself and the help and guidance you gave to me even before I signed up keep with me for future works.
Mark Daly Thanks to Emma Scott from Pluggin Baby for all the hard work on promoting my single in the UK. I was delighted with the results!
Hook and Rhyme Records We are extremely pleased with the results – yet again – and we would not hesitate to recommend you to other artists and labels. You are such a hard worker as your results show. Thank you so much.
The Bottom Line We have worked with Emma Scott at Pluggin Baby on two occasions for three singles. She has been easy to work with and very attentive, collaborating with various PR companies in order to achieve the best exposure. Emma took the time to recognize our target audience but also advise on the best avenues to approach. She got us onto Kerrang! Radio & the TeamRock playlist (as well as many other stations), which are massive players in our genre, Pop Punk.
I would personally recommend Pluggin Baby to any of my friends/ colleagues in bands, as she provides great exposure, bespoke to the size/ genre of bands she works with.’
Max Ellis (The Bottom Line)
Andy J Gallagher Thanks to Emma Scott at Pluggin Baby, my last double A-sided single received airplay all over the world on numerous stations. The results that Emma achieved for it were stunning and completely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!
The StrawheadsThanks so much to Emma for taking on our festive track “But Hey, Happy Christmas”. What impressed us most was Emma’s honesty from outset – almost trying to put us off by saying that not only had we possibly left it late too start a new campaign, but as unknown artists we were really up against a very competitive batch of song submissions this time of year and she could not promise any degree of success.
We went with it anyway (the artist always know best!!) and Emma’s efforts got us played on 60+ unique radio stations.
Emma kept us informed along the way and we are looking forward to her plugging our next release. Thanks Pluggin’ Baby!
Norquay I left my campaign quite late and didn’t have the strongest budget for it. Within 24 hours of getting all my info over to Emma for plugging my Twitter was going bonkers and still is almost 2-3 months later and it looks like it still will be for a while.
On top of that, I was played on Kerrang! Radio not once, but 3 times on the Johnny Doom show. That’s a major result alone! I did some interviews too and Skype sessions and even managed to get some great reviews and blogs in there. I will certainly be using Pluggin Baby again for my next release. I would suggest to any band if you have a strong single, EP or album to do a couple of campaigns with Emma if you have the budget.
You could be onto serious exposure, airtime for months if not half a year!
Andrew Norquay (Norquay)
TwisterI’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of me and all the lads. We are very pleased with all the work you have done for us and we will definitely be putting more work your way in the near future!
The Sad Song Co Emma was the plugger for my third solo record, and it was an excellent experience. She was conscientious, hard-working, positive, her communication was excellent and she has excellent contacts throughout the grassroots radio network. I hope to work with her again! Nigel Powell
Scarlet Fantastic I have really enjoyed working with Emma on her recent campaign around my latest single “Beyond Pluto” from my Reverie album.
What I like about Emma is her tireless devotion to getting a job well done and absolutely NO BS!!! Everything Emma said she was going to do – she did! In this day & age that is quite refreshing.
Emma kept me bang up to date with all plays and progress and she worked very hard to gain as much profile as possible.
I would recommend her to anyone and I would certainly use her again on another campaign. A lovely lady who I believe has an even more massive career ahead of her!! Watch out for Pluggin Baby!!
Thank you Emma! Maggie K de Monde /Scarlet Fantastic x
Of Kings and Captains After coming highly recommended from both local recording studios and fellow artists, we decided to contact Emma Scott at Pluggin Baby to begin talking about the possibility of Emma plugging my band’s next single. We have recently finished our first campaign and at the point of writing this are about to start another.
This is testament to Emma’s ability to get your music in front of the right people and in turn help raise a bands profile. We didn’t hesitate in approaching her for the follow up single.
We cannot recommend Emma highly enough, almost as soon as the campaign started we began to receive airplay from stations including Kerrang!, BBC WW, Radio Caroline and also found ourselves on Brum Radios A-list! We also received reviews from online music blogs and countless plays from internet radio stations, stretching as far as Australian radio.
It was important for us to be able to track the progress of the campaign and really see results. We received regular updates on progress from Emma via email updates along with shares on social media, this transparency made it easy to follow and gave us plenty to talk about as a band.
Emma offers a range of different packages which made it very easy picking one that was right for us and in budget. Payment is easy and everything is conducted with such professionalism. A friendly service that gets results! I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
Chasing Ghosts This is our second time working with Emma Scott and ‘Pluggin Baby’ and once again it was a huge success. We have been featured on well over 60 radio stations worldwide, including the prestigious Kerrang! Radio, Total Rock and Metal Nation, plus had our music reviewed on many online music magazines.
The success is all down to Emma’s professionalism and passion for getting good music the recognition it deserves. Going above and beyond what you would expect from a radio promotion campaign and never failing to disappoint.
We cannot recommend ‘Pluggin Baby’ enough, an essential tool for any unsigned band with music good enough to grace the airwaves.
We look forward to working with Emma once again in the not too distant future.
Thank you so much – Chasing Ghosts x
A Blue Flame Emma’s great to work with; she’s got a great knack for picking the right song to plug and got the band loads of airplay that we couldn’t ever have got ourselves. Not only that, she kept on pushing right to the end of the campaign and beyond. If you need someone on your side with lots of connections in UK radio and beyond, she’s the one!” Richard Stone
Escapade ‘As a fledgling record company trying to promote their first single from a new band, Emma’s help and guidance has proved invaluable. Escapade not only achieved airplays in the UK but also the USA, and she has delivered on everything that was promised and more, including arranging the creation of a new bio for the band. We have no hesitation in recommending Emma’s services and look forward to working with her again on our next release.’ David Vanham | Fin Records UK Ltd
CHRIS ANERA Emma is a really nice person and really professional! She worked hard to plug my music to UK radio. Everyday she gave me news and feedback from the radio stations and presenters. She knows how to work and she listens to her clients. Even when my campaign was over, Emma was happy to answer questions from me and give advice:-) Thank you, Emma!
Deadset Dream We were frustrated with the exposure our self-released music was getting. We knew it was good, but barely anyone but our fanbase heard our music. By using Pluggin’ Baby not only did we get good airplay on reputable and credible outlets, but the feedback we got on our music from such a diverse range of listeners was invaluable. We’ll certainly be looking to work with them again on future releases.
Hands Off Gretel Emma worked hard throughout our campaign and we were thrilled with the results, especially the Kerrang! Radio airplay. She didn’t just help with radio – we had lots of online reviews too, which was great – and we were constantly kept up to date with what was happening. Thanks Emma
Will Lawford Emma was fantastic! I had national and international play as well as great reviews and interviews. There was great communication throughout the whole process and I will without a doubt use her services again. I would recommend Pluggin Baby 100%
The Sun Hotel We got in touch with Pluggin Baby for our first ever attempt at radio plugging after reading Emma Scott’s book and seeing that she really knows her stuff. We went for the ‘Silver’ package. Emma was really helpful, and we got played on far more stations than we originally thought. All our social media accounts grew in popularity, and when the process was over we received a breakdown of everything that had happened
Sixty Minute Man Emma and Pluggin Baby came recommended to us by a producer we were working with at the time. It was immediately clear that we had opted for the right person. High attention to detail, regular and thorough updates along with an encouraging level of enthusiasm. We became in contact with a large number of local stations and were able to use the campaign to secure contacts and interviews that have proved useful.
The Pink Diamond Revue Pluggin Baby did an excellent job with our single campaign and we are very pleased with the radio plays and reviews they got for us. We would definitely use Pluggin Baby again and would highly recommend them!
Tyrannosaurus Nebulous After self funding our E.P. ‘Deal With My Evil’ we wanted people to hear it across the UK and the rest of the world. With Pluggin Baby that’s exactly what we got with plays on over 80 radio stations in the UK and beyond (the jewels in the crown were Kerrang! Radio and Planet Rock).
Our singles were also reviewed on a number of blogs and we landed a couple of great interviews. Emma was excellent throughout, providing us with advice and regular updates on what was happening with our campaign. Don’t even think about it any further – you already know who you need to get your music heard:-)
Argument City We got in touch with Pluggin’ Baby about gaining some radio play and within 24 hours of the campaign starting we had several plays nationwide. What we liked as a band was the fact it was backed up with proof via Twitter and personal emails from the radio stations to Emma at Pluggin’ Baby. These were all sent over to us for us to see and we had constant contact with how the tracks were doing, how they were being received and when they were being played.
I would definitely recommend other bands using this company as they’re by far the most trustworthy and transparent PR company I’ve used. As a band you always feel a bit weary of spending money and taking a risk but the immediate professional relationship that we struck up put our mind at ease and I’m sure we aren’t the only band to think this.
Once again thanks to Emma and her professionalism, our band has moved forward since getting involved with Pluggin’ Baby!
Mark Mathews Pluggin’ Baby has been incredible for promoting my new album. Emma managed to get me so much radio play including on BBC Radio London. She worked with my budget, worked with what I wanted to do and gave me sound advice and was always on hand if I had any questions. She managed to get me a load of interviews as well as plays and also an added bonus of coverage in music blogs. I could not recommend Pluggin’ Baby and Emma enough. She is a welcome breath of fresh air in an industry that has a lot of sharks and I will certainly be using her skills again.
The Senton Bombs We’d been trying to get played on the likes of Planet Rock and Kerrang! Radio for a few years and our Pluggin’ Baby single campaign finally made that happen.
Beyond the big name stations, Emma pushed our single far and wide, resulting in many new listeners and fans for the band. It has been a pleasure working with Pluggin’ Baby and we sincerely hope to embark on further campaigns in the future. A professional, approachable and efficient service. Massive thanks from all of us in The Senton Bombs.
INDYA Emma is a hard working and extremely lovely lady. If you want an amazing plugging company then look no further! Pluggin Baby will get you those results you’re looking for. Emma got us onto Kerrang! Radio and Total Rock radio amongst many other stations with fantastic press and reviews. My loyalty will always remain with Pluggin Baby as they are fast, professional and worth every penny. We brought Emma’s book “If it Was My Band” and we learnt so much from this, so make sure you buy it too if you want to shine! Thank you very much Emma for everything xx”
The Mojo Slide As well as a getting us played on local and regional radio, Pluggin Baby also got us played on Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show and on Nicky Horne’s new TV show! Thanks Emma!”
Universal Thee A brilliant campaign! It seems to have worked really well for us and we’re building awareness. Lots of great reviews and plays – and we’re still to see the full impact of the second single. Thanks for all your help so far!
Savannah We’re very pleased with the campaign – Pluggin Baby have done a great job! The track’s been picked up by a lot of good stations and had some great feedback!
See you for the next release!
The Rogue Network Pluggin’ Baby were great! Totally professional, excellent communication and the radio plays just kept coming and coming! Followed by radio interviews, Skype chats and more! So, a brilliant campaign – thanks you so much. Money well spent! 🙂
Maybe We’re Dead Already From the start, Emma has been very helpful and her expertise and knowledge really helped during our release campaign. From helping out with choosing the right single, to getting us interviews and radio sessions – she was instrumental in getting our music to the right ears. We look forward to working with her again!
Ooberfuse We highly recommend Emma Scott and Pluggin Baby. Their radio plugging service is second to none, and we have used several other radio pluggers in the past. Emma not only delivers an excellent radio campaign, but she genuinely helps and cares for artists she works with. Her advice on the music industry and feedback is invaluable. Our first campaign with her had our song Fall played on over 70 radio stations, and we are now on our second campaign with her. Thank you so much for all your help Emma and Pluggin Baby!
Mohawk Radio Thank you so much for all your work, Pluggin Baby! We have truly loved working with you, and look forward to working with you on future releases. You have been an absolute professional and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate it!
FAHRAN Pluggin’ Baby is a must for bands that want to get out there and not only get their music heard, but to make those connections in the industry and maintain that buzz.
Emma works beyond and above and all of us at Fahran can say we are really happy with the radio campaign. We highly recommend to anyone looking to get up that ladder.
Stu Rawle All in all, I’ve been incredibly happy with the plugging campaign for my debut EP. Emma has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only does she have a huge list of strong relationships with key people in radio, she is also organised and assertive, sending weekly updates on progress and feedback. The Gold package is highly recommended and offers great value for money! Looking forward to working with Emma again on future releases!”
Heel Pluggin Baby have exceeded all our expectations ten times over! The team are super knowledgeable and incredibly easy to work with. We’ve recieved great advice since the start and they crafted a perfect campaign to get maximum exposure for our music. Even as an unsigned and completely independent band, Pluggin Baby have managed to get us loads of plays on multiple national radio stations and hundreds of regional plays all over the UK. We can’t imagine ever working with anyone else xx
In Isolation Emma’s dedication to the cause is outstanding. In Isolation had a truckload of radio spins, online mentions and reviews which really helped to build our profile, and gave us good quotes to use in our biog and album one-sheet.
It’s clear that Emma’s contacts respect her as a plugger, as we discovered from the many replies forwarded to us.
We found Emma to be always on the ball and full of great advice. She went above and beyond our expectations. A highly recommended plugger.
Conquer Rio Emma has been brilliant for us from start to finish. Pluggin’ Baby was recommended to us by various bands, producers and we couldn’t have been happier with the result. In a process which has a fair bit of apprehension for an artist, Emma takes you through step by step and comes back with regular updates on how your campaign is going. With no previous experience of a campaign of this type, we felt immediately at ease with Emma’s communication and organisation of everything. Cheers, Emma!
Return to the Sun Before working with Pluggin Baby, we asked around on music forums to see if anyone else had worked with them (just in case) and we got nothing but great feedback so there was no hesitation after that. Emma talked me through everything over a telephone call and I was left with nothing but confidence with the prospect of working together with Pluggin Baby, then without warning I received Emma’s book ‘If it Was my Band’ through my door which I thought was a really nice touch and an example of how they work as a company
We ended up losing count of the radio shows we were getting played on as it was a daily thing, constant tweets and retweets from the radio shows, and weekly updates from Emma detailing which shows we had been on and what DJ’s had said about our music. It was evident within the first few days that we were working with a company that had an extensive contact list and because of that fact, along with how personable Emma is, I’d recommend Pluggin Baby every time.
Steve Young Pluggin Baby have been a total pleasure to work with. Starting late in the game as an ‘Original Artist’ it seemed like a lavish risk to try and get some radio play – however looking back at the last 8-10 weeks I have seen my profile grow and over 60 stations play my music on a regular basis (and not just the one song). How does this relate to units sold? I’m not sure that’s the priority at the moment. I do feel I have my foot in a very essential door and with an album on the way I know there is a community of FM & Online Radio stations that will support and nurture my emerging releases. After speaking with Emma on the phone back in July 2015 I knew that if anyone was going to respectfully support my interests, not fob me off with unachievable targets and charge me a decent fee then it was going to be Pluggin’ Baby
Marcella Detroit All I can say is RESULTS! Not only is Emma very diligent but she delivers with a keen wit and a great sense of humour. She’s open to suggestions, brings a lot of her own, is very easy to work with and her connections are VAST! As a testament to her character, the DJ’s and radio presenters that she set up my interviews with were very complimentary of her. She’s relentless and I would classify her as working “above and beyond the call of duty”. I feel we got a lot done with one campaign for the first single off of my newest release, “Gray Matterz” and I’ll be working with her in the new year on my next single release. Thanks Emma!
Dark Stares Emma is great to work with; honest, super positive, hard working and awesome at keeping you in the loop with progress.
United Highs Working with Emma Scott and Pluggin Baby has been a pleasure! Loads of radio plays and our single is still getting played even though the campaign is over. It’s lasted a few months.
With all the radio plays, our online presence has greatly improved – helping us to sell more albums from our bandcamp page – we are looking forward to doing it all again, thanks!
The Bluebook Project We’ve had great results working with Emma, getting played on many stations all
over the UK and also gaining national radio plays on Planet Rock and being written about
in several music blogs.
Any bands looking for promotion, contact Emma and Pluggin’ Baby!!
Raising Jupiter It’s been a fantastic campaign! It’s been really superb having you guys on board – when I see the amount of different shows that have gotten behind our music, it’s very encouraging to say the least. Also, the tremendous reviews were a pleasant bonus!!
It’s great to know that a professional company like Pluggin’ Baby, who care about their artists is out there! I, for one, cannot wait for the next campaign!!!
Sulferdust It was nice to receive so many positive comments from the radio hosts. All in all, the campaign was a great success, thank you so much for plugging us! We didn’t expect our song to play in such a huge bunch of radio stations, it was almost hard to keep up with all the plays 🙂
This was totally amazing, thank you again!!
bd Gottfried I think it was a fantastic campaign, as well as cost effective. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to Pluggin Baby to be plugged again for my next album….!
Joykill Collective Having Emma Scott at Pluggin’ Baby agree to come on board for our debut single release made a huge difference. Having someone so knowledgeable and dedicated from the beginning is paying off for us already.
Very exited to work with Emma again next time around and would recommend Pluggin’ Baby without hesitation.
Able Archer As an Irish band trying to get our music heard in the UK, it can be very hard to know who to contact, what are the best shows that are right for our music. Pluggin Paby helped plug 2 of our singles and got our music played all across the UK in places we’ve never even heard of and some national plays as well. They made something very difficult look quite easy… offered really great advice… and are just all round nice people.
Burn Down Rydell If you’re in a band you need radio and if you need radio you need Emma Scott.
Blacklist Union Emma Scott & Pluggin Baby are the real deal. They do what they say and they deliver. Emma went above & beyond what we expected. We have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry & Emma gets the grand prize for keeping her word & following through. The biggest names in the industry failed miserably every time. Emma has integrity & in an industry of snakes that is very refreshing. I could not say enough great things about Emma & Pluggin Baby. I highly recommend them.
Tony West, Blacklist Union
Yeallow It’s a real pleasure to work with Pluggin Baby! Emma is always cheerful and you can feel her drive. On top of this she continues to produce superb results. It’s very important to us to have our music put forward in the UK. We hope to collaborate with her as long as possible!!! A big thank you!!!
Mordecai Everything has been awesome, we really feel like you give a shit about the release which is rare in the industry! You guys have been amazing and have gone well above and beyond the call of duty! We’ll definitely be using you guys for the next release!!!
Thanks again Emma!!!!
Inacoma Pluggin Baby delievered more than what was promised. What we got was fast and at the same time, efficient. Pluggin Baby’s campaign even got us some reviews and played on national radio in the UK for a number of weeks. Be prepared to be played on many radio stations with amazing service, and with great connection and contact. Worth checking them out if you want your music out there in the wild!
Sun Arcana We were contacted by Emma Scott from Pluggin Baby earlier in the year with an offer to promote our new singles “Take What a You Need” and “Oblique”. I’m very pleased to report that our experiences to date have been nothing short of fantastic! Not only have both singles received a huge amount of radio play but they’ve also been included in many playlists which have really helped get our music out there! Furthermore, Emma has kept us informed continually throughout the process and has also been a great help to us in introducing us to other industry professionals. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pluggin Baby and will definitely be appointing Emma to plug our next 2 singles…
Hackmonocut This was my first time working with a radio plugger and I have to say that I really enjoyed working with Emma and Claire. From the first moment I knew I was working with music pros who knew exactly what to do. Before we started my campaign they even helped me put together a radio edit of my single to get a better chance of airplay and it worked out perfectly. This was definitely not my last campaign with Emma and Pluggin’ Baby!
In Search of Sun Thanks for all your hard work with plugging the track! We’ve seen some positive feedback and gained some new fans from it.
Tess Of The Circle Emma at Pluggin Baby was brought in to focus on specialist and rock station play to bolster the existing national radio and media coverage of TESS OF THE CIRCLE. What she has achieved has been nothing short of remarkable!!
Over 80 stations took the LOVE IS THE DRUG THAT YOU CRAVE single, many of whom had it on repeat play for multiple weeks. My only hesitation in recommending her is that we wish to use her time and again and don’t want her roster to become too full !”
Vintage Voice Records Ltd
Cold Fields Thank you so much for all your hard work in bringing our music to the attention of so many great radio stations. We’ve had some brilliant results and have really enjoyed working with you. Cold Fields x
Offpeak The campaign was excellent and really got our music heard! Cant wait for the next one!
Thank you! Jamie Pick, Offpeak
Still the Mind I just wanted to say a big thanks to you and your team for the excellent campaign you’ve put on for us. It’s been great to see our music getting out there and receiving so much airplay both nationally and globally.
I’d also like to add that I was really impressed by the communication throughout the campaign and the amount of feedback received regarding plays etc. It was excellent and really helpful, I would highly recommend the service to any independent artists looking to get their music out there.
Thanks again for everything and I look forward to working with you again in the future, hopefully soon.
Matt, Still the Mind
Two Skies Its been a pleasure working with Pluggin Baby.
You’ve done a great job helping us get our music to a wider audience.
Empire Signal The campaign has been brilliant, thanks so much! Emma has helped get our single ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ played on over 100 radio stations in the UK and America, she’s a top professional and full of advice and help that goes above and beyond a radio plugging service. We’d happily recommend her!
Gentian This was our first EP release and our first time going with a plugging company for our songs, so we weren’t sure what to except or how things would go…but thanks to Pluggin Baby we had an amazing campaign!
We we’re kept informed by an email each week with what was happening, where we were being played/reviewed and anyone who wanted to interview us.
We had so many plays and reviews from people that we would never have had the chance to contact by ourselves, thanks to Pluggin Baby’s amazing list of contacts, it was so exciting to watch the campaign build, look and see where we had been played and what people had to say about our work.
We had many questions which Pluggin Baby didn’t mind answering for us, and targets which they helped us achieve. When we make another EP we will definitely be using Pluggin Baby. A definite 5 star!! 😀
Thank you so much for all your hard work.
DD & Jingle, Gentian
Hayes & Y We are a young band from a small country, that’s pretty far from the UK. We were looking for ways to get our music heard there and found out about Pluggin’ Baby. They liked one of our tracks and we decided to go with it and see what happens.
Both Claire and Emma were very kind and helpful and gave us a lot of advice on how to get the most out of the campaign. We got a lot of plays and consider this a nice start of our career in the UK. If you are looking for a plugger, Pluggin’ Baby is definitely a good choice – the price was reasonable and their attitude was very good.
Vita & The Vicious Working with Emma was like having an extra person on our in-house team. She believed in the Vita & the Vicious project from the outset, looking for every possible opportunity, getting results and giving us endless good advice. We look forward to the next time.
Make My Day Music Ltd
Token Joker Our band have worked hard to produce our own material, expending a lot of time and money ensuring that our recent EP ‘Just Part of the System’, was produced and mastered by the very best in the industry. Having done that, we were then facing the dilemma of how to get maximum exposure and as many radio plays as we thought the finished article deserved. Step in Emma Scott and her team at Pluggin’Baby!
Emma has been completely transparent from the very start. Her wealth of experience and contacts in the industry are simply brilliant, and when Emma took us on board after an initial approach, Token Joker have enjoyed fantastic exposure on a level that none of us ever expected. This has culminated in our single ‘Ride the Train’ being part of Planet Rock’s playlist. To have exposure such as that would have never happened unless we had Emma and her team on our side.
We were tentative as to how much the plugging could cost, but delighted that Emma’s charge for the service was value for money every step of the way! Right from the start, Emma looked in depth at our bio and had it re-written in a fashion so much better than we could ever have imagined. We have enjoyed some wonderfully written testimonials on our EP and the band, and it really has made people sit up and take notice of what our band is all about – bringing back guitar driven powerful rock ‘n’ roll which has been acknowledged all over the UK and the world!
Thank you Emma and Pluggin’ Baby for delivering exactly what you said you would, and we cannot wait to work with you again very soon.
Turrentine Jones We used PlugginBaby for a recent PR campaign. The exercise cost us half the
amount of previous campaigns and Emma appeared to put in twice the effort.
The campaign finished weeks ago, but the band are still benefiting from the
work she did for us. Nothing is guaranteed with radio pluggers, but I
wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PlugginBaby to others, and will definitely
use them again.
Manager – Turrentine Jones
Jamie Porter I was aware of Emma Scott’s reputation and commitment to promoting music and rock bands over the years and her hard working ethos in delivering professional shows and guiding bands, so when I came across her new venture Pluggin’ Baby, I knew that it would be a company worth working with promoting my new project.
Emma and her team gave great feedback and advice from the start, and throughout the campaign for the release of my single being both positive and realistic throughout. I gained plays that I would never have done on my own and contacts that would have taken me years of work to put together. I will definitely be working with Emma again on future releases!
Crashgate If, like us, you have good well-produced songs then you’re probably looking at getting your songs played on the radio? There are two options for this, 1. Do it yourself, 2. Get a plugger.
Now for us, we didn’t know of many pluggers and the ones we did know charged a lot for their services so we went with option 1. We had small successes. Millions of emails were sent out, each radio station meticulously researched so that they’d give us some attention and at least listen to us, we had countless conversations with stations and had to work so much to get in. Now after some time of doing this, the amount of time we were putting in was more than all other band activities combined, and the amount of actual radio plays we were getting didn’t quite feel equal to the effort that we were putting in.
So we did some asking around and we got a recommendation for Pluggin Baby.
We contacted Emma, we’re not going to lie, we were expecting to get slapped in the face with a price of 1000’s again, but that didn’t happen, the price we got was actually an affordable price, after a few emails back and forth asking a tonne of questions about the level of service (which were answered professionally and swiftly). We settled on a campaign, sent the payment and all the files to be sent out.
Straight away, we got pulled up on our ‘bio’ we thought it was good, but looking back… It wasn’t. So the folks at Pluggin Baby recommended a great wordsmith called Pete Ringmaster. We went for it and he was just as professional as Pluggin Baby and wrote us an astonishingly good biography. With that in place the campaign started. With great success, We stopped counting because we were appearing on so many radio stations, it was so much easier than anything we’d previously done and all the time we were constantly being given updates by Emma.
So Option 2. Getting a plugger saved us a lot of effort, gave us the feedback and improvements that we needed before we sent out our campaign, and increased our exposure at least ten fold.
Seriously if you’re in the same position as us, and you need a plugging campaign get in touch with Pluggin Baby, we cannot recommend this service enough.’
The Crossfire Hurricanes Emma Scott is the secret weapon that every aspiring band or artist needs. Very professional, very hardworking, and charmingly sociable. We had lists of radio stations playing our material, reviews from DJs and producers, we had social media updates from radio DJs, we were tagged in posts, tweeted by radio shows, and kept up-to-date on a regular basis by Emma herself.
She took our first single The Deviant, and within a number of weeks it had been played on over 50 radio stations across the UK. Emma gets results – pure and simple. A fantastic service; and we will be employing her skills again once our new material ready.
Grassroutes We would like to say a massive thanks to Emma & the Pluggin Baby team for getting us played on 60+ stations! Much appreciated guys!
Fahran Working with Pluggin Baby has been a pleasure. Promoting our latest single Take This City Alive was handled fantastically, always being kept up to date with where and when it is being broadcast. A great campaign. We highly recommend.
Nightblade I have to say that Pluggin Baby really did deliver from the word go! Everything was carefully documented so the whole band can understand whats going on.
Throughout the whole campaign we were regularly informed and updated. We also had some great comments from some of the DJs who played our songs, which was a lovely bonus. I would recommend Emma to any band who is serious about getting airplay because she doesn’t disappoint, and that’s pretty rare nowadays in the music industry. Emma is professional, gets the job done and a pleasure to work with.
The Carnabys Emma and the team at Pluggin Baby proved invaluable to our campaign with The Carnabys promotional single releases. Emma’s drive, care and attention to detail was second to none. She has great contacts within the industry and her strategic and bespoke approach has really helped us take the band to the next level through radio plays, interviews and sessions. I would have no hesitation in working with Emma and Pluggin Baby again in the future and indeed recommending her to anyone looking for a superb radio plugging service.
Marc Carey, Hard Rock International / Records European Marketing Director
Daniel Mutch I am so grateful for all the work and effort that Emma and her team put into my song’s campaign. She got me my first BBC Radio airplay as well as pushing my track to stations all over the U.K and U.S.A! I could not have done this without her and Puggin’ Baby. Thank you so much Emma! You made it all possible.
Bobgoblin We’ve had a fantastic experience with Pluggin’ Baby and Emma Scott, especially when you consider how much they’ve done compared with how little they’ve required from us. Starting off the relationship was very easy and comfortable, and the results of the relationship have been exciting and impressive, as we’ve gotten traction in some places we might not have otherwise. We look forward to working with Emma and her crew for our next release!”
Ben Owen “My single ‘Dirty Little Secret’ was playlisted on Planet Rock Radio for eight weeks running and played on nearly 70 stations all over the world! Emma was able to plug my single far further than I would’ve been able to do alone. If you’re looking for radio play for an upcoming rock release I’d highly recommend Emma.” – Ben Owen
Kolo LHM records worked with Emma at Pluggin’ Baby on the launch of UK rock band, Kolo’s first single, ‘Castro.’ We found Emma very approachable and she worked with us over a number of months. We were very pleased to get ‘Castro’ into the Top 200 played tracks on UK radio. Thanks, Emma:-) Jim Thomas, Director, Longhousemanagement, LHMRecords. https://www.facebook.com/koloband
Phoenix Calling When we got involved in managing and investing in Phoenix Calling, we sought out the best professionals in their field. We were delighted when Pluggin Baby agreed to take the band on as a client to plug airplay for their first single ‘Everybody Knows’. Emma has far exceeded the number of airplays that we had targeted and provided excellent feedback throughout. This is probably the best marketing budget spent in my 20 years of running various businesses! An awesome effort from Emma and her team, well done to all. We have already booked our next campaign! Jon Hewitt Phoenix Calling Management Team Director, Crescendo Music Services Ltd
Fake Obsession First class experience and great communication! Emma delivered the goods and then over delivered! We saw a dramatic increase in plays likes and follows on our social media sites and great feedback from interviews and radio stations, a pleasure to work with!
Mercutio I’m Gianluca Cucchiara and I manage the rock band Mercutio. I worked with Emma last year and we had many DJs stations playng Mercutio’s debut single Back to Nowhere. I really think the result was very good. Emma is very committed with her clients and very professional. Gianluca Cucchiara, Mercutio. (Mazepa Records)
Offpeak The plugging campaign for our single “Romance is Dead” was GREAT! We cant wait to use Pluggin Baby again for the release of our next single! 54 plays is outstanding – we didn’t think we would get that many:-) Thank you, Jamie Pick
Adam Wedd “I was impressed with the friendly nature of Emma Scott and her team and that she was able to deliver on getting my single played on 50 + radio shows worldwide. I was happy with the specific targets which we achieved and with how she kept me updated every way of the campaign, especially as the single coincided with a tour I was doing, Emma did all she could to sync the single and the tour together. SO glad to have done the campagin with Pluggin Baby and would recommend them to anyone starting to get their feet on the airplay ladder! Emma was able to build on contacts I already had and strengthen existing relationships with stations who were already playing my music. Sad to see it end! ”
The Starkins We worked with Emma Scott at Pluggin’ Baby to promote our latest single ‘The Night’. We were all shocked when we found that it had been played on nearly 50 radio stations across the globe! Emma put 110% into making sure our single was being heard and always kept us up to date. Fast results, great communication and very professional! We’d love to work with her again. Thanks again for your hard work! Matt Elliss
Scout Killers Thank you for all your hard work and support over the last few months. We really appreciate it. We are very happy with how Stand Your Ground has been received and feel our campaign was a success. We would definitely consider coming back to you guys in the near future. Chris
The Bayonettes We worked with Emma and Pluggin Baby for the release of our single ‘How Far’ and we have to say the results were great! We had plays on radio stations up and down the country along with plenty of good feedback from the stations and DJs. Emma’s approach is one that is professional but also very personal and friendly which made the whole process really good! Thanks – and we will be in touch with our next single soon!!
Tom Butler “When I first heard about Pluggin’ Baby I wasn’t sure if it was legitimate so I discussed with band mate who, upon hearing about Emma Scott’s involvement, was quite impressed. What seemed like a scary move turned out to be a very important and beneficial step toward building credibility in the industry. Emma, from day one, was very involved and made things happen. She kept me updated with weekly (sometimes daily) emails about the stations that were interested in playing my single (“On the Line”) as well as the ones that wanted interviews. She always gets back to my emails and is thorough and professional. After the campaign finished she presented me with a full overview and report. I’m very happy about the results achieved with Pluggin’ Baby and for the honest hard work put forward by Emma Scott. I look forward to working with her in the future.” Tom Butler “On the Line” is on Spotify:
Martyr de Mona “When Pluggin’ Baby approached us we had no hesitation in working them. It’s quite simple! They get results! Our single Gravity Breaks has been played on over 50 stations including Team Rock and Planet Rock. We couldn’t be happier and we will certainly be working with them in the future”
THEIA “Emma Scott was a legend to us. Awesome DJ, Pure Rawk Promoter of the Year 3 years in a row, Author of “Break Your Band” which we had bought, read and re-read long before we decided to approach Emma’s “Pluggin Baby” service. We’d worked hard on our music, found the best recording studio and producer we could, packaged and sent out dozens of copies with a press pack, tea-bag and kit-kat, but the responses were few and far between from radio stations. We’d never worked with a “plugger” before, but it was Emma or no-one. So we gave it a go. And we waited, as you do for all good things. Then an email……. Emma loved our track “We’re Alive!”. Much dancing & grinning was to be seen in THEIA HQ that night! The campaign was discussed, a launch date was set, and we set her loose. The results have been extraordinary and have truly surpassed our hopes and expectations. Emma has kept us informed throughout of plays and comments from DJ’s. But she has also given invaluable advice as we have gone along. She has listened to us, guided us, helped us co-ordinate other gigs and postings on social media. We have felt that she was on our side from the start and at no stage did we feel like we were “just another customer”. But even more than all of that – by believing in us, Emma has given us yet more self-belief and confidence in what we do. As musicians, you can’t put a price on that. If you have a cracking track that needs plugging, Pluggin Baby is the ONLY place to go.”
Follow You Home ‘Working with Emma was an awesome experience, she managed to gain us more results than we expected and was informative and enthusiastic throughout our campaign. When it comes to radio plugging she is our go to person!’ Richard Davis
The Carvetti’s In the year Prior to working with Emma and Pluggin’ Baby we had had one or two radio plays with no real gain or acknowledgement. In the short time (roughly 6 weeks) our single ‘Killing Time’ has been promoted by Pluggin’ Baby we’ve had no less than 39 stations acknowledge our track including Single of the week on 94.4 Salford City FM Radio and great reviews from Absolute Radio and KUBERadio. This has helped our digital distribution sales and recognition in the unsigned music scene massively! Overall working with Emma has been a huge pleasure as she does not lack on pushing the tracks as much as possible and updating artists on a regular basis. For our first campaign we are extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend Pluggin’ Baby to any bands looking for a cost efficient and effective way to promote their music. A definite return for future releases!
EL BORN Pluggin Baby were an important and effective part of our release campaign. Our music reached significantly more radio stations and producers because of Pluggin Baby.
RUPERT STROUD “Emma has been a lovely person to work with. She helped me gain a great number of regional radio plays for my singles and a few radio interviews too. She’s a great supporter of new music!”
The Clox “Pluggin Baby is one of few companies we met along the way that actually exists with its sole purpose of helping up and coming bands and musicians. Not only have they kept their promise and delivered our track “Jules Verne” to numerous radio stations and blogs in Great Britain and neighboring countries, but our song was recognized by Pete Mitchell at Absolute Radio as the record of the week. Great job guys. Thanks.
We Came From Wolves “Pluggin Baby provided an excellent service and campaign for our release. We really liked the level of communication and felt that our goals were met throughout the campaign.” Andrew Dyce, Manager, We Came From Wolves.
Marco with Love “Emma was a real pleasure to work with on the radio campaign for LOVE. She was realistic with her targets and always over-delivered. I am happy with the outcome of the campaign. “Love” was added into the rotation by over 48 radio DJs across the UK and is also continuing to receive spins in both The US & Canada! ” Marco Argiro – Singer for Marco With With Love & The Killing Floor
Lydia Singer I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your plugging campaign for Lydia, especially all of the extra help you given me on setting up the social media from changing URL’s to setting up Twitter accounts and suggesting a name which I was absolutely clueless about! The fact that you’ve not clocked watched and with the campaign lasting for a 17 week stretch of plays, is just amazing. What a great kick start to the launch of a career & I will certainly be coming back for Lydia’s next single launch. Thanks for your help. Alyson Singer, manager.
Chay Snowdon Having never used a radio plugger before I was slightly dubious that I would achieve the amount of radio plays that I was promised. However my doubts were soon put to rest when Emma and the Pluggin’ Baby team set to work promoting my track “Shower and Scream”. The plays came in from UK stations and abroad thick and fast and Emma kept me in the loop every step of the way, up dating me with all the feed back and comments. I can’t wait to continue working with Emma next year and into the future, I can highly recommend the services of Pluggin’ Baby!
Halcyon Hope “We do not know where to begin our praise of Pluggin Baby. From the gathering of information through the expert advice along the way. Everything has been conducted in the most professional manner. But where one can really measure these things are the results garnered. And also in this respect Pluggin Baby always brings home the bacon…slice after slice. Halcyon Hope are far beyond satisfied with the expert services supplied by Pluggin Baby!” Miki Petersen / Halcyon Hope
Stellify This is the second time with worked with Emma and Pluggin Baby on a release, quite simply because she gets results. Big ones! Our first single was played on more stations than I can remember and our second single made on it onto Planet Rock Radio for over five weeks and was also Kerrang! radio’s Single of The Week. Without being plugged by Pluggin Baby we quite simply wouldn’t have got anywhere near those kind of stations or that kind of exposure. It’s not just about getting radio play that made us go with Pluggin Baby for a second time though. Emma is passionate, hardworking and always makes you feel like you’re the only band she’s working with. She goes above and beyond anyone else we’ve worked with in the industry and now feels like more of a friend than our radio plugger. If you want results and want to hand your music over to someone you can trust, then Pluggin Baby is one.
Beth Prior ‘Pluggin Baby’ were my first experience of collaborating with a radio plugging company. Without doubt I will be working with Emma again. She goes full throttle, and the results are brilliant. As independent artists we’re bound to all aspects of making our businesses work, from admin, to booking gigs, arranging fees, and maintaining social media presence. All of this at the same time as writing, recording & performing our work… Let alone earning some pennies!! Playing manager to your art form is empowering and draining in equal measure, at the core of what Pluggin Baby did for me through my 8 week campaign was to take some of the weight off my shoulders. I was able to be really busy touring ‘Nomad’ knowing that in the background Emma was plugging away for me, sending my work to new contacts. Knowing this allowed me to give the best of myself in performance and seemed to create a traction and potency that I would have struggled to find alone. There was almost a constant barrage of tweets from various UK radio stations, (USA too) either from a new station, or a replay from a radio show who’d really enjoyed the song. It is important to mention that after the campaign ended, the contacts still remain and the plays keep coming!! Along with the radio plays, I got some stellar reviews from bloggers… I can’t recommend this company enough, I was so used to pushing through by myself…it’s so good to collaborate and build a team around yourself, and ‘Pluggin Baby’ are well and truly re-hired for my next release!!!! Great value for money, great contacts and always good humoured on the job. THANK YOU !!
The Taskers “Emma Scott really pushed our track for us and put our name in the mouths of people who have really made a difference to this band. ‘Hogs From Hell’ got a load of plays and reviews, we’d definitely do it again.” Jack Tasker
Barstow Bats “We’re a record label & of course we have our own contacts & mailing lists… However some tracks deserve extra love & attention & so we’re happy to hand our special children over to Emma at Pluggin’ Baby. Why? Simple – she works hard & she gets results. Her communication is top class & her insider knowledge is priceless. She’s highly recommended.” Phil @ smartindiemusic | EMrecords
All She Knows “Pluggin Baby is very co-operative and so helpful. They contact radio stations that we couldn’t contact and e-mails us reviews and updates on how our music is doing regularly. Definitely the plugger that every band should use if you want a big boost. If you’re a musician and looking for a lot of helpful advice, go and buy a book called “If it was my band…” by Emma Scott too. We would definitely love to work with Pluggin Baby again next year for our new single. ” Ting Tang, All She Knows
Leo Kai Emma Scott has to be one of the best radio pluggers I have worked with. She put in so much effort when it came to plugging my track across national, regional, local and online radios. Even getting the track listened to by people on Radio 1. It’s been a few months since the campaign finished but still to this day I have people finding my Facebook and saying they have heard my track on a radio station. One of the best things is the cost. Most radio pluggers charge ridiculous amounts and for upcoming musicians where funding is usually an issue, her rate was affordable and fantastic. I would happily work with Emma in the future for any big releases and I recommend her to all musicians out there.
Cammy Black Yeah, over the moon with the plays and interviews! Definitely would like to work with you again without a doubt!!
Sacred Wind ‘Emma and Pluggin Baby have been a joy to work with. Her proactive and positive attitude is bolstered by her responsiveness, her ability to react quickly and her tenacity. Emma is also generous with her time and advice, allowing you access to her wealth of experience in the radio and entertainment industry. Plus, she is a genuinely smashing person! I will certainly be utilising her abilities for future campaigns and also have no hesitation in recommending Emma and Pluggin Baby to any established or aspiring artists.’
Andreas S Jensen “I think Pluggin’ Baby did a good job of promoting my single Take My Heart And Go. The song got played and/or playlisted on both commercial and community radio stations and got mentioned on some blogs. I also got a live interview on a national radio station. My clear feeling is that the song was listened to by the right people and Emma sent me quotes and updates nearly every day. Now I know that somebody out there likes my stuff, and I know what cities to focus on when touring. I will be hiring Pluggin’ Baby again for my next release.”
Be Like Pablo We’re really happy with how things are going with Pluggin Baby. We’d really like to work with you again on our releases over the next year.
Joe Miles ‘I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emma & Pluggin’ Baby during the promotional period of my EP ‘All Good Things’. I had heard of radio pluggers, but had no previous experience of the process, or indeed, the results. I was attracted to Emma’s service for several reasons. The main ones being a) the feedback from her previous clients, b) the results she has had with other clients and c) very reasonable pricing, as being an unsigned artist, radio plugging is usually not an option. I have been kept up-to-date throughout the entire process, including any national/international plays, feedback from radio presenters & producers, and even had a couple of radio interviews set up. Emma’s industry experience and ‘people skills’ are very impressive and I would recommend her radio plugging to any artist, signed or unsigned. I’m very pleased that she is going to be plugging my next single too! Thanks Emma!’ – Joe Miles
George Merk “First time working with Emma Scott and Pluggin Baby and couldn’t be much happier. More than 40 REAL plays in a month with my single “The End” ! Emma is very frendly and professional. She kept me updated on the campaign on a daily basis with news and feedback from djs and professionals. Working with Pluggin Baby has been very helpful to me and I feel to recommend Emma’s services to any band/artist looking for a quality plugging. Looking forward to do it again with my new album! Thank you Pluggin Baby and Love From Switzerland!” George Merk
ANIMA “Radio plugging was new territory for us, but something we felt we needed to explore. The campaign went well, and from it we learned our single made the grade when pointed in the right direction, an insight that will be invaluable for the future. Emma was very approachable and when we turned to her for advice, even concerning matters outside of the specific plugging campaign, she always responded enthusiastically with helpful information. A pleasure to work with.” Dan Sheridan, ANiMA
The Landed “We couldn’t really of asked much more from our first experience with Pluggin Baby. We were played by sixty different presenters/stations, far more than we expected. This service is a must for any band with a great song. Emma was in contact with us all the way through, giving us advice and answering any questions we had. It was quite apparent from the feedback that we were given that Emma is well respected and liked in the industry which is hugely important when putting your music in the hands of a plugger. We’re now starting our second campaign with Pluggin Baby having had such great results from the first. Emma made everything very easy and 100% delivered, why would we use anybody else?” Paul Hale The Landed
SPOTLIGHT KID “Pluggin Baby have regional radio absolutely covered and have massive respect and trust from DJ’s across the country. A great thing to put in place just before you embark on a tour. We now have support from many radio stations across the UK which we can build upon.”
WE ARE THE CATALYST “We can’t begin to thank everyone at PlugginBaby for their outstanding work with We Are The Catalyst. They deliver exactly what the promise….plays, plays and more plays and not only that, these are quality plays on quality stations with REAL listening numbers. Emma and her team also kept in touch throughout the whole time they were working on the bands music with regular updates and reports. A lot of people will claim to get you on the radio but PlugginBaby really do it. Would definitely work with them again in a heartbeat. Many thanks” Stuart (One Night Stand Management and We Are The Catalyst)
PUPPET REBELLION “Emma worked on our radio plugging campaign and we got some really positive results and some great feedback as well. Emma was professional throughout and kept in touch regularly and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to upcoming bands and artists”
ALAVANO Pluggin Baby has been absolutely excellent for my band. We parted with our hard earned cash with trepidation, as radio plugging is something we’d never done before but our nerves were soon put at ease with the phenomenal results that Pluggin Baby obtained for us. Pluggin Baby got my band national airplay in the UK with BBC Radio 2 and Scotland’s Clyde 1, along with a full page feature in The Sun newspaper and countless regional airplay. We’ve worked with Pluggin Baby on 3 singles and long may our working relationship continue. I can’t recommend Pluggin Baby enough. In a word….Stunning!!!! Ocean Adams (Alavano)
LOCK UP LAURA Lock Up Laura have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and results from using ‘Pluggin Baby’s’ services. With regular updates on airplays and feedback from radio stations in the UK and America, the band’s first official single was excellently represented from Emma Scott and her team. The band have received media attention and coverage throughout the duration of our campaign which is imperative for unsigned acts to get noticed. Lock Up Laura can, without a doubt, confirm that Pluggin’ Baby has helped us progress within the industry and grow as Rock Band in the midlands. We fully recommend Pluggin’ Baby and Emma Scott to all bands out their wanting to release a single or an album. Thank you. Lock Up Laura.
THE RAINBAND “Having worked with a couple of pluggers previously, we realised that many have the same contacts and connections but ultimately it comes down to how much passion they have for the music you create. Emma has acted like a sixth member of The Rainband in her drive and desire to get our music out there. Janice Long now champions our music on Radio 2, Pete Mitchell made it single of the week on Absolute Radio and many more besides. In Emma’s words “You need a great song to make it happen” but in our experience, you need it in the hands of someone great who can make it happen……she is and she can. She’s proved it and for that, we recommend Emma and Pluggin Baby to anyone looking to get their music out there on the airwaves.”Martin Finnigan
LUKE WYLDE AND THE JAPES ‘After using Pluggin’ Baby’s services, our music was played on many radio stations. We were provided with constant updates of when and where our music would be played next and it also allowed us to gain some beneficial feedback, for the development of our band, from major radio stations. All in all, Pluggin’ Baby provide an excellent value for money service and if you want your music on the airwaves, then they’re the people to speak to! Big thanks to Emma for her commitment to our radio plugging campaign!’ Luke Wylde
THE FIREFLYS Emma Scott’s Brainchild “Pluggin Baby” has to be ‘the’ if not one of the finest PR radio plugging companies in the world. Emma and her team have worked tirelessly to secure The Fireflys some major airplay and has dramatically raised the profile of the band. We will be using Pluggin Baby for many campaigns to come. She is professional, has a wealth of radio knowledge, and is very friendly. Viva Pluggin Baby! Lee A Wylding – The Fireflys
REIGN OF KINGS “I think we’re going to save up our pennies and use Pluggin’ Baby again! Emma’s done a fantastic job and we really appreciate all the hard work that she put into it! You get real value for money when you use Pluggin’ Baby! We’re amazed at how much radio play we got with our single ‘Another Day’. We would love to work with her again as soon as we can! Thank you again for everything you’ve done for us Emma!”
WINGS OF APOLLO (U.S. based) Working with Emma and the team at Pluggin’ Baby has not only been extremely helpful to our music career, but also a breath of fresh air! With over 25+ years of experience in the music industry, Emma had the connections that we needed to break into the UK music scene. Being an American band, it was hard to get our name out overseas. We tried promoting through all the social media platforms, but only got miniscule results. After sending out our song to Emma, we immediately started getting feedback from all over the UK! From radio stations, to blogs, to magazines, we have had an overwhelming amount of responses and opportunities that came and continue to come our way! Thanks Pluggin’ Baby! Cannot wait to continue working with you!
LOW TIDE THEORY Emma worked with us on a number of single releases and we were really impressed with the results. We had plays on BBC Radio London, Amazing Radio and Eddy Temple Morris’s show on XFM directly thanks to Emma. We also had radio play on a wide range of local stations and Emma also secured us radio interviews, music blog features and a live broadcast gig on a BBC regional station. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Emma’s services again 🙂
THE NEW FUTURES (U.S based) “My experience with Emma Scott and Pluggin Baby has been nothing but wonderful. She truly cares about the artists she works with and is quite the force. She gets things done and makes things happen! I hope to work with Emma on all of my releases!” Sammy J Riddle.
KALEIDOPHONE We spent a long time working and investing in the release of our single #WYMO, getting the best producer to make it the best it could possibly be and give us every chance of success. We gave the single to Emma at Pluggin Baby to push to radio..and she made it fly. She has offered us considered opinion on the release, timely advice and the benefit of hard earned credibility in the music industry. Some stations overseas picked it up just because Pluggin Baby had agreed to plug it! Also once the track was released Pluggin Baby continued to provide excellent updates on the tracks progress and relay any feedback coming from the stations. We would like to say a HUGE HUGE thank you to her and Pluggin Baby for doing an absolutely amazing job for us. This is just the start…
MESH “Working with Emma for the first time was an absolute pleasure. Very knowledgable and she knows how the business works. For us as a band who have had a reasonable amount of success in Europe it was great to have her working on our last release here in the UK. Weekly updates and good communication on reactions and feedback from radio stations and DJs. Exactly what you want. Looking forward to doing it again very soon.”
REGULATION NINE (U.S.based) “We’re musicians, so music is what we love, and what we know how to do best. Local promotion comes naturally, but it can be difficult to get exposure in an entirely new market. We wanted to focus as much of our attention as we could on writing, performing, and recording, so we enlisted Pluggin’ Baby for professional promotion outside of our local area. We’ve expanded our fan base and have gained exposure on several UK stations including TeamRock Radio. We’re very pleased with Pluggin’ Baby and are excited to work together again.” VP of Regulation Nine
SUPER73 “A huge thank you to Emma at Pluggin Baby for Everything you did for us In 2013. We learnt alot, and intend to put it into practice this year . We made a bunch of new friends through the experience, leaving us looking forward to what this year will bring”
AGENT “We loved working with Pluggin Baby! Great results in getting our name out there and building our fan base. Communication was quick and on a personal level which made us feel like our songs were in good hands! The outcome was more than expected and once the ball was rolling, it didn’t seem to stop!”
KING CANUTE “A real industry gem. Emma was pleasure to work with, kept us fully informed and up to date with who was playing our stuff and when, we got countless gigs and opportunities thanks to the airplay… If you want your song heard by people, and the right people, work with Pluggin’ Baby – I know we will be again. Johnny C,King Canute ”
BUSAYO “It was a great opportunity having Emma Scott and Pluggin’ Baby promote my single ‘Don’t Let Me Go’. Thanks to an amazing and relentless team ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ reached much further than previous releases, getting airplay on radio stations across the UK – including multiple plays on BBC London. Emma also offered a non-biased guidance on what I needed to make the song great. When things looked hard, she gave me the encouragement I needed to continue. I see Emma and her team as friends now and I know I can count on them because they have my back. Thanks a lot and I’m now looking forward to an amazing year ahead.”
ANDY DEVANEY – ARD (UK) Management Working with Emma currently and over the past couple of years I have found her to be a pure delight to work with. She’s friendly, helpful, reliable, and one of the easiest people in the music business to work alongside. Emma is not only very professional but has a natural flare, her determination shines through even when working to tight deadlines and testing situations, Emma goes above and beyond to achieve outstanding results. I highly recommend Emma and her company to any musicians or management companies out there in need of a knowledgeable plugger such as Emma and Pluggin Baby.
TOURISTS “We wanted to promote our new EP and try get some air play, so looked to Emma Scott for help. With in the first week we had over 10 air plays including a national play on BBC Radio 2. And still now months after we are still getting plays and hype from Emma spreading the word for us. Emma is true to her word and very effective, would now always turn to Emma first to help us promote our music.”
BEN PARCELL “I’ve worked with several promotion and marketing companies in my time as a musician and producer and when I came across Emma after reading her book, I decided to go with a plugging campaign to take my music to the next level. It was a breath of fresh air to deal with Emma. I felt like my music was in good hands and that I trusted I was not being cheated. She provided daily feedback of all the stations that were plugged and going the extra mile by securing me reviews and interviews.”
DROP DOWN SMILING “We used Emma’s services for a short radio plugging campaign and we were genuinely surprised and pleased with just how successful the campaign was in just a short amount of time! Countless plays with varying radio stations including Kerrang! Radio and multiple write up’s and reviews with online publications. This seriously raised the bands profile in a short amount of time, not sure we have ever come across someone quite as hard working! Emma has a very hands-on approach and keeps you in the loop every step of the way. Would thoroughly recommend! Thanks Emma!”
FERAL SUN “Feral Sun are stoked to be working alongside and have the support from Emma Scott at Pluggin’ Baby. Emma has been working her magic with plugging our singles to radio along with copious amounts of PR. Thanks to her “Around the Clock” work ethic, our first single “Long Road” got played on many stations around the UK and Emma as always keeping us updated with the amazing feedback. We love the fact that Emma can keep us on our toes while all the while, forever there to give amazing advice, as and when she can.”
SUZUKI METHOD “As a small independent label we put our trust in Emma and Pluggin Baby, we had looked at and used other plugging agents on previous releases, with zero results. In just two days, Emma had us five different UK regional radio station plays, three features on USA radio stations, interviews and big tune of the week on national radio station Absolute Radio”. She kept us up-to date throughout and went “above and beyond” to get our music heard. Emma has the radio industry contacts and makes things happen, we will definitely be using her again for future releases.
Paul Travis – Label Manager A1(M) Records Ltd.
Fight the Dice “With our single release for Oh Me, Oh My we’ve been working closely with Emma Scott and her new company, Pluggin’ Baby. We’re just taking this opportunity to make our own testimonial and make it known that this lady is the business. Emma Scott is rapidly becoming one of our most trusted and valued contacts within the industry with her professionalism, charisma, and most importantly enthusiasm. What we like the most is that Emma’s passion for undiscovered music really shows in her work and it’s clear that she wants to help you spread your music to the world. If Emma thinks you’ve got a good track, she’ll go way above and beyond her call of duty to get you the airplay and recognition you deserve. Her new project Pluggin’ Baby has already done wonders for us in plugging our new single to radio stations across the UK (and in fact the world). Within two days of release we’d had positive responses from the likes Radio 1, ABC Radio, Kerrang! Radio and Bauer Radio to name just a few. When you’re an unsigned band, you need this kind of exposure. And Pluggin’ Baby is the way to get it. For us, it is a pleasure to work with Emma. We’ve had great responses from the radio plugging and a friendly, professional service, and we have no doubt Pluggin’ Baby will explode to be as big as it really deserves to be. So from us, Fight The Dice, to Emma Scott and her new baby, Pluggin’ Baby, we’d like to say a huge thank you.”
The Undivided After two weeks of radio plugging & still going, we Liza Buddy & Umong Shah at Chaos and Bedlam Management & The Undivided want to acknowledge the sheer hard work and passion Emma has & is putting in. The band has received airplay on BBC Radio 1 Introducing, Team Rock Radio, Nation Radio, and more…. Emma and her team give bands and artists a platform to get their music heard by DJs & radio producers, & an opportunity for airplay…THANK YOU EMMA and Pluggin’ Baby!
SUNSIDE (U.S based) “We’d like to take a moment to thank a key member of our Sunside Team – Emma Scott of Pluggin’ Baby. She and her team in the UK have been working hard to get our music into the best of hands, and she’s been succeeding to great degrees. It’s so great to have such a respected music and radio veteran on our side, promoting the music that is so dear to us. Emma, THANK YOU! We’re so grateful for your hard work.
