Lewis Dene 

Artist Solitaire, USA Music Consultant

I have had longstanding respect for owner Steve Stimpson, while his business acumen and professionalism is second-to-none. Having worked with Concrete recently on a campaign I have been so impressed with their honesty, due-diligence and expansive marketing plans. They create detailed bespoke marketing and promotion campaigns for each release, not the cookie-cutter approach of other companies, and never make hollow promises, nor take on records they are not fully committed to. 

Armitage

Steve has been very important in getting my music out to the right people and I can't thank him enough for connecting me with the right people in the industry. He seems to know everyone. I have had numerous Radio one plays from using his service and he is a great guy to work with. I thoroughly recommend his services to all up and coming artists.

Jonathan Ulysses 

Global DJ, Remixer, Producer, Label Owner Ulybug Music

Every time we use Concrete Promo to promo our tracks there was larger percentage of named reactions and more magazine and radio interest! They kept us constantly updated with the progression and the movement of each individual track. There is a lot of thought also when sending out the right tracks for the correct artists. Well worth the investment and interest from both ends of the industry.
