Speakeasy PR & Marketing was founded by Monica Seide in January of 2005 after nearly a decade at Warner Bros. Records and a multi-year stint at Nettwerk Music Group. Prior to kicking off Speakeasy PR & Marketing, Monica was responsible for a number of high profile publicity campaigns including launching Coldplay’s U.S. career with “Parachutes,” working with Static-X on their platinum-selling debut album, establishing an enduring relationship with Mike Patton via Mr. Bungle and representing a number of influential and eclectic musicians including Neil Finn, Ivy, The Barenaked Ladies, Ministry, Old Crow Medicine Show and handling tours for The Flaming Lips, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Mudhoney.
Since Speakeasy PR’s inception we’ve been fortunate to work with artists of all stripes including musicians, filmmakers, winemakers, internet entrepreneurs, tech giants and graphic artists. From working with Whole Foods on the Arizona Stronghold wine tour to working with Microsoft to launch the Joy Division branded Zune as well as administering several of our artist’s Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ve expanded the scope of what we handle from focusing entirely on publicity to handling marketing campaigns, product launches, media buys and all aspects of social and online marketing.
We consider the artists and companies we work with to be the best of the best and work tirelessly on their behalf.
