London, Britain (UK)
Mercenary Publicity was set up in 1998 by Kas Mercer who has 25 years experience in PR. She worked for Mercury Records for 10 years (6 as Head of Press), responsible for such diverse artists as Elton John, Bon Jovi, Kiss, Roni Size, Johnny Cash, Warren G, Tears For Fears, INXS and Metallica (who she still represents).
We currently represent established artists as well as new acts, no niches for us, we just like good tunes! Mercenary Publicity specialises in National Press and Online PR within the UK although we also have good connections with regional press, Radio and TV. We are proactive and creative in our approach, and committed to, and passionate about our clients - most of whom we have represented for many years.
Mercenary has helped launch the music careers of Jamie Cullum, (for whom we were shortlisted for a Music Week Pr Campaign of the year award) Juliette Lewis, Fightstar and Har Mar Superstar as well as maintaining the profiles of our current roster of Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Chuck Ragan, Lapland, Nothing More, Dinosaur Jr, Juliette Lewis, Evanescence, Goo Goo Dolls, The Devil Wears Prada and Motley Crue and Sixx:AM. In the past Mercenary has represented lostprophets, Def Leppard, My Chemical Romance, The Cult and many more.
We can only deal with enquiries from UK publications - ie: we do not deal with International Press or Club Promotion!
