“A rare ray of metal-friendly sunshine in an industry with a very high wanker quotient, Lisa Coverdale is both an absolute pleasure to deal with and one of the most reliable and efficient PRs I’ve ever encountered. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to any band that needs a helping hand from someone who knows what they’re doing and does it well with passion and integrity. As an added bonus, Lisa is smart, funny and loves cats. And her surname is sexy.” – Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer, Prog Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine, The Guardian

“Lisa is your band’s new best friend, second mum, occasionally a slave driver when necessary, but moreover a genuinely lovely person to work with. You can tell she’s dedicated to her work and is honest and sincere in all that she does. If she didn’t live so far away, we would most certainly be regular tea buddies. But for now I’ll settle for long distance PR Wonderwoman.” – Paul Antonio Ortiz, Chimp Spanner

“Lisa is the best thing that can happen to a band. She lives and loves her job and her approach and results show it. I would recommend her to any band or artist looking for PR to get their music out there.”  – Nadim Jamal, Absolace

“I have worked with Lisa for around six months now and she is my favourite PR person to work with. I always receive a professional yet personal & fun service from the first point of contact in her press release all of the way to when I send her my reviews (or her chasing me up!). Lisa is such a pleasure to work with. I love her.” – Nate Southwood, Booze, Beats, Bites Zine

“The work ethos of Lisa towards the bands who have entrusted their promotion to her, the amount of hours spent finding new ways to promote bands that are often overlooked is ridiculous; perhaps a knighthood for the promotion of diversity [if it existed] should be in order.” – John Meffen, SEO Co-Ordinator

“Lisa is a great person to work with. She is always striving to do the best for her clients which often involves going above and beyond to get the job done. She is well known and liked throughout the music industry and is extremely knowledgable and trustworthy. Lisa will get the best out of your product with a focussed work ethic, detailed planning and timely execution to tight deadlines. I would thoroughly recommend working with her.” – Ben Whitfield, Condate Records

“As one of the many PR people we have worked with Lisa stands out, as articulate, intelligent and focussed. She know’s her onions, and doesn’t adopt the “fling far and wide and hope it sticks” approach. We at OneMetal.com know that when we receive press kits from her, they are appropriate to our tastes and site focus.” – OneMetal.Com

“Lisa is wonderful to work with. She has great subject knowledge and respect within the industry including contacts for every need. She is driven, passionate and delivered what she promised every time which took a lot of pressure off myself and my colleagues. Highly recommended.” – Colonel Blast

“Lisa puts her heart and soul into every project she takes on. One of the genuinely good people in the PR business!” – Editor in chief, ThisIsNotAScene

“Lisa’s commitment to the subtle art of PR is amazing; the people she works for as a PR consultant should be immensely proud. Her professional attitude, polite & friendly communications & most of all her passion & drive for the artists & bands she’s promoting make it a pleasure to be in contact with her, & makes me happy to receive her promotional materials. As the owner of an international radio show, it is indeed a pleasure to see someone who is amenable to suggestion & request, but at the same time maintaining professionalism & courtesy to those she’s dealing with. – The Rock Show

“Lisa is a delight to work with, she’s enthusiastic and appears to work hard for her clients and I have no hesitation in endorsing her.” – Miranda Yardley, Managing Director, Terrorizer Magazine/ Dark Arts Ltd

 

“James and Lisa at Hold Tight! PR are the perfect partners for our PR effort; they’re passionate about what they do, bring excellent knowledge of European territories and always go above and beyond our expectations. They’re fun to work with, bring a bunch of creative ideas to the table and drinking with them is always an experience.” – Steve Joh, Century Media

“Essentially, James & Lisa both bullied me into letting Hold Tight! PR work for BASICK. One was drunk, the other stalked me online. I’ll let you decided which was which.” – Barley, BASICK RECORDS

“Hold Tight Media is easily one of the top indie PR firms out there. They always deliver on their promises and then some, work within your budget and are extremely responsible. The simply exceed our expectations time and time again and if it were up to me I would hire them for every single Sumerian release. They are one of the best. Hands down” – George Vallee, Sumerian Records

HTPR are one of the forward-thinking PR companies around. It’s always been a pleasure to work with them either via Thrash Hits or via Metal Hammer. James and Lisa will always try and accommodate your needs and come up with new and innovative ways of marketing their bands. Sometimes James pukes on your shoes as well but that’s only after you buy him a beer and give him a cigarette. Money can’t buy that… – Raz RafiqThrash Hits, Prog Magazine

CackBlabbath ❤ Lisa, James and HoldTight. Always helpful, always responsive, and with a roster of consistently awesome bands that none can match. A total pleasure to work with, these guys are the best. Fact. – IainCack Blabbath

We like Hold Tight! for putting our silly faces everywhere with baffling ease but we LOVE Hold Tight! for the home-made cupcakes and wine-soaked hoodies they brought us on tour! – Uneven Structure
