Testimonials Part One

Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash Testimonial:

“Billy James has been working for the last few years in the capacity of PR person for Wishbone Ash, a band of 40 years standing with a solid international reputation. In particular he has been garnering us a multitude of placements on rock music news internet sites. This has undoubtedly improved our profile internationally and the spin offs from this kind of exposure have been tangible. Billy is pro – active, extremely personable, and a pleasure to work with.”

Kevin Godley Testimonial:

“Billy James (Glass Onyon PR) is a fan. In professional terms that means he’s a publicist who cares, and if he cares about you and your music he will move mountains to let people know what you’re doing and why they should check you out. Billy loves good music and will always go the extra mile to find ways to both inform the faithful and convert those with a passing interest into fans. Perhaps more significantly he understands how the internet can effectively spread the word alongside more traditional media and is adept at manoeuvring talent into the cultural consciousness. His dedicated involvement over the past few years has helped nurture a sizeable following for our own modest GG/06 project so I speak from experience. Bottom line… if your publicist is a fan you’re ahead of the game. If it’s Billy James and Glass Onyon PR, you’re way ahead.”

Bill Evans Testimonial:

“Billy is the hardest working promotions guy I’ve ever seen. He never sleeps!”
