As an independent artist, it's hard to know who you can trust and what areas are worth spending your budget on. I hired Krista to act as my publicist for several reasons: 1) She ACTUALLY listened to the music!!! I know that sounds absurd, but she cares about the music and artistry she is representing! 2) She works just as hard as you do! Krista is dedicated to making the most of her time and there's no doubt she's sweeping across all the right channels to get the word out about a release. 3) She's organized and she knows her stuff! She communicates well and clearly and sends reminders when I've got an interview coming up. Not only did she get great regional coverage but also got press in several national press outlets!
I spoke to a multitude of publicists, but the minute I talked to Krista, I knew she was the one. My intuition was correct and she ran a wonderful album release campaign for us. She landed many high profile reviews in addition to great websites for our music video premieres. Krista is top notch when it comes to communication which is key. She really cares and that comes through both in her infectiously enthusiastic personality as well as the way she goes the extra mile. Any artist would be lucky to have her on their team.
Working with Krista for the release of my latest album has been one of the best investments I've made in regards to my music. She has gotten me many favorable reviews and placements I would not have been able to reach on my own. I appreciate her honesty and advice.
I spent a couple months researching music publicists to do a national release campaign with for my newest project. I asked for referrals from respected singer/songwriter friends, and a couple of them told me about Skye Media. I had met with a handful of publicists in person in L.A., and yet Krista won me over with just one phone call. She did an outstanding job on my campaign, is very kind and thorough in all she does, responds immediately to everyone, is creative and is adaptive to the ever-changing music industry. I would gladly recommend Krista and Skye Media to any artist/band looking for a publicist.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Krista for almost 20 years, both at major and independent labels. She is a consummate professional who continually thinks outside of the box for her clients. I have been extremely impressed at her ability to navigate the changing times in both the music and media industries. Krista is a forward-thinker who does not get stuck clinging to old-school methods of business; to the contrary, she has seamlessly integrated online and social networking outlets into the existing model and always has an eye out for the next opportunity. In addition to being on the top of her game professionally, she is warm and engaging personally -- simply a pleasure to work with.
Krista is very tall. Normally that makes me nervous... about anybody. In spite of her tallness, she is a joy to work with. She is a talented writer and a diligent publicist. Anyone would be fortunate to work with her or have her take on the responsibility of their publicity. But she is tall.
I love working with Krista! She is positive, a great communicator, detail-oriented and completes work in a timely manner. Krista is also willing to learn new skills to better serve her clients. I highly recommend her without reservation!
Krista is organized, efficient, quick to respond, and pays close attention to details – everything I am looking for when I hire an outside publicist! On top of all of that, she gets the job done, and I trusted her completely.
From our first contact with her, Krista took the time to understand us as artists and what [our album] Ride is ultimately about. Her professionalism, expertise and "can do" attitude are invaluable and she is always an email or phone call away. Navigating this terrain is a real challenge and I can't imagine not having Krista at our side. She's the best.
Krista's got it covered. I can't think of a single instance in which she wasn't completely on top of what we set out to do. If you're lucky enough to have the chance to work with her in any capacity, I'd highly recommend it.
Krista has secured great coverage for the release of my debut album "Life in Full Colour," including print, online and broadcast spots. In choosing a publicist, I wanted someone who would get to know me and my music, and who I could reach easily throughout the project. Krista has been great to work with -- she is always available to discuss ideas and brings real passion, creativity and energy to her work.
Back in 2000, I began what has been seen by fans, the press and even, to some extent, by myself as a mid-career comeback. It helped that I had just made what I still consider to be my best record, "Here Come The Miracles." But an absolutely essential part of that process would most certainly have to be the hard and savvy work by my publicist Krista Mettler. She did such a great job of tracing back my career and my music, understanding how the new record fit into that history and then knew exactly how to present it to a music press that might have otherwise not been paying attention. The result was not only the most press I had received in years but also the right press from the right publications in a strategically timed campaign which she then continued with many records of mine that followed. I can't even begin to state how grateful I am for the great work she has done for me.
I have worked with Krista Mettler on countless projects since the late '90s with both my band Sister Hazel and on my solo CD release "Drift." Whether it was working with us as a newly signed baby band at Universal Records, to guiding us through platinum and gold records... or with her publicity work on some of the biggest indie releases of the last decade while we were with Rock Ridge Music, Krista always brought her "A" game! She is extremely thorough, professional, diligent, easy to work with, and she ALWAYS represented us well. The relationships she has made throughout her career are absolutely invaluable. She quickly earned our trust and has remained a friend to us all.
Every now and then you get lucky enough to work with someone who not only helps elevate your work to an entirely new level but does it with such care and grace that you're almost forced to relax and trust that you're being represented in the best way possible. Krista Mettler has had this very impact on my career. Her ability to quickly assess and maximize every opportunity is rivaled only by her professionalism in getting the job done right each time. Krista's the best!
Krista Mettler is a literate and passionate supporter of music and musicians; her ardent love of music surpassed only by her devotion to her clients. Krista has always been a great and reassuring pleasure to work with: a support, a champion, a friend.
I have worked with many publicists lo' these many years -- from the most expensive in the biz with the biggest artists, to people just starting out who didn't know the lay of the land. Krista Mettler
is just the best there is, bar none. She's passionate, persistent, proactive, and will "scream it from the rooftops" like any artist would want. If you have Krista
in your corner, you have someone you want alongside you in a battle. Given the current, cluttered rock landscape that exists today, that's what it really is -- trench warfare. There is nobody... and I mean nobody
I'd want beside me in that trench other than Krista
... and I don't care who's on their roster.
