Hi, I'm Lewis. I founded Plus Music PR back in 2018 and have worked on tonnes of exciting campaigns! I'm an ardent Aston Villa fan, proud owner of a Dachshund called 'Peach', and my fun fact is that I've played synth with Damon Albarn.
I’m Antonia, a third year Music Business student! When not in the office I can be found promoting gigs, managing emerging artists and working at venues Manchester. I used to be a flautist until I got introduce to the Indie music scene in college! My all time favourite artists are Passion Pit, Tame Impala and Grimes. I also have a dog called Lottie who keeps me on my toes.
Hey, I'm Matt. My first love of music came in the form of an old, scratched Oasis CD that I found in my dad's car, and lead me to start my first band, who was dreadful! Finding new creatives to work with and develop has always been my passion.
