Testimonials

“Shira is what journalists and critics like me rely on: attentive, fast, understanding, all of the above PLUS an intangible extra which makes you feel like you’ve got an ally in your work.”

Laurence Vittes, Journalist (September 2012)

 

“Over the last year we have worked with Shira to promote all of our new CD releases to press and radio stations across the USA. We have had great results with a lot of airplay and reviews. Shira sends us regular updates and we have been delighted with her friendly, efficient, detailed and prompt service. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”

Cath Edwards, Label Manager at The Sixteen Productions Ltd (June 2013)

 

“Ce fut un réel plaisir de travailler avec Shira lors du lancement du dernier cd d’Appassionata Sérénades tchèques. Vite devenue une allié de première qualité, elle a su façonner le message pour la clientèle ciblée : Canada anglais et États-Unis. Grâce à son vaste réseau et la qualité de ses contacts, Appassionata a pu faire de très intéressantes percées chez des médias inaccessibles jusque-là. Elle a clairement dépassé les attentes que nous nous étions fixées et c’est sans aucune hésitation que je la recommande chaudement.”

Françoise Henri, Directrice générale, Appassionata (March 2013)

She is a brilliant advocate for her PR clients, and collaborating with her is a joy.”

“I am more than happy to recommend Shira Gilbert as a person and professional. I have always been impressed with not only her work ethic, knowledge and creativity but also her enduring affability. Shira, a results-driven individual, offers a wonderful and fresh approach to public relations – whether dealing with artists, management companies, record label guys like myself or engaging radio, TV and concert venue staffs. She is full of intelligent insight, tons of experience and always has a great attitude.”

Joseph Szurly, President at Red Jacket Music Network Strategies (August 2010)
