We are a site dedicated to promoting new bands, artists and local events. We will be sure to update often and to introduce new music, as well as live events from around the world,. We created this site because we felt many bands that are not as well-known, but equally talented were not giving the opportunity to outreach to new potential fans.
Junkie Promotions 2015, will bring you updates on local and international acts, as well as weekly music updates from a variety of genres. We usually keep an eye out on amazing talent, but if you think we missed someone, please feel free to visit the contact page! Also, if you are interested in writing an article, submitting photos, or contributing in someway please email us.
We truly enjoy doing events, interviewing artist, also giving fans behind-the-scene features on exciting events! If you would like us to cover an event please contact us here. Thank you for visiting our site, and we hope to meet you soon!
Ashley Hackworth – CEO/Founder
In 2008 Ashley moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in Public Relations for musicians. A year later and 100 + concerts, Ashley decided to create a site mainly for the unsigned and newly created bands who are not frequently promoted throughout the media. The site would be a home base for many genres of music available for all fellow music junkies to enjoy. She felt that many local artist were amazingly talented and did not receive the opportunity to showcase as often. Junkie Promotions has now became a home base for local, as well as national artist. The site is simply to update all music junkies on their favorite artist as well as new!
Since the start of Junkie Promotions Ashley has gained experience through interviewing, band promotions, working with music labels, event planning, and non-profit organizations. Ashley has recently obtained her Bachelors in Communications with an emphasis in International Relations from Woodbury University. Since graduating, Ashley has set a few goals for the new Junkie Promotions; the most important being that in 5 years she hopes to obtain a larger international viewership, as well as promotions of international bands.
She hopes that you all enjoy the new site and will continue to show support as in the past. She also wants to thank those who have helped her achieve many of Junkie Promotions goals. 2015, is definitely the year for Junkie Promotions so be on the lookout for many amazing projects.
