- Founder of Infectious Magazine & Muddy Paw Public Relations
Angela Mastrogiacomo is the founder and CEO of Muddy Paw Public Relations and Infectious Magazine. Both avenues allow for her intense love of the emerging artist to shine—at Infectious this comes through in their many guest blogs and features, while at Muddy Paw, she works to bridge the gap between artists and publications, incorporating heavy personal outreach with traditional press releases for a strategy that has seen her artists placements on Noisey, Idobi, Substream, New Noise, A Music Blog, Yea?, and many more. Artists she's worked with at Muddy Paw have gone on to play festivals like So What?!, Warped Tour, and open for nationally recognized acts, as well as secure licensing placements. When she isn't working, she can most often be found hanging in the park with her dog, or curling up with a good book and some hot tea. (And probably a cupcake or two.)

I really like this! It caught me by surprise but it's really catchy and I love the ebb and flow of it. It's really diverse and while it has that familiarity that I think is crucial to commercial success or even niche success on a smaller scale, there's something about the switching rhythms that keeps it really interesting. Can see this working primarily in rock outlets, places that have heavily covered festivals like Warped Tour in the past, but I can see some pop marketability too. Would love to do a PR campaign around this! Feel free to email me: email@example.com
I love what you did with the music video—it's gritty and simple, but I can tell you really did a lot with a little here and it works to keep it compelling. That goes for the song as well—it has this really raw feel that I like, and the whole thing ties together wonderfully! Would love to work more on promoting it together, please feel free to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org
I love this! it's 100% up my alley. Super energetic, and the music is instantly infectious. I also love what you did with the video—you have what seems like a fairly budget friendly set up, and yet, you made it really compelling and interesting. It's not easy to get people to watch a full music video, but I think you made yours really engaging. I would love to work together on this and do PR around it! Shoot me an email: email@example.com :)
I really like this! It reminds me somehow of Rooney in the style, but I really like the song itself and how creative, simple, and sort of weird the video is I also really like the theme behind the lyrics. I would love to work together on promoting this, please feel free to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org
Really love the storyline and creativity of the brand and that it's so well conveyed through this music video. That's such a rarity in today's music scene, but I can tell you guys have really thought it through. I'm really enjoying the music as well—super catchy, well polished, easy to get into, and incredibly accessible. I also think the video tells an intriguing story to support the track. I would love to work together on this!
Really enjoying this! It feels really accessible—definitely pretty easy to get into and have on in the background, but I can also see getting pretty into it after a few listens and dancing along to it. Would love to work together on promoting this, let's touch base for sure!
Really enjoying the pop-punk vibe of this, and it's obviously incredibly reminiscent of Blink-182 and that era of bands, but something about the vocals is a little off for me—I can't quite pinpoint it, but I think it's that it sounds a little TOO much like it's trying to sound like Blink-182 and I'd like to see a bit more of your own uniqueness there. I think there's a lot of potential here!
Although the first 20 seconds or so were a little slow for me, I thought the creativity of the rocks (once I saw where it was going) and the way it carries through the video is really clever, especially with even including the music notes. That said, it's still a little bit slow for me and the shaky camera and poor lighting makes it a little bit hard for me to get into as much as I'd like. It's a creative idea though!
I really like this! I wouldn't say it's something I normally gravitate to, but there's no doubt it's super catchy, and definitely a throwback to my early days of Warped Tour and that overall scene. I also love that there's going to be inclusion of a cartoon, clothes, and ice cream. It sounds like your branding is tight and the way you're spreading your message is diverse—would love to learn more!
The music and vocals feel a little out of sync to me—it seems the vocals should be a little softer, but I have to say the instrumentals are beautiful. It creates a really strong, emotional response, which I just love.
I love the melody on this, especially around the 2 minute mark, it's really powerful. But something production wise on the vocals sounds off. It just isn't syncing up for me, it sounds a little too low for the music, and slightly too unpolished. I think there's lots of potential here though.
I really like this! The music itself is beautiful, and the video is really captivating. Even though the song itself could easily be a love song, (which it sounds like it was) you guys gave it new meaning with the incorporation of the home videos and made it personal by having it be videos of you both. The story behind this is really beautiful too. Happy to work together on a feature and promote!
Super catchy! Lots of energy, very accessible—I'd love to work together! Also a big fan of this single art. It's simple, but the branding is clear, and the color stripe across your face adds an extra dynamic. It's honestly a big part of why I chose to hit play, is how intriguing it is.
This isn't the style of music we cover so unfortunatly I have to pass on coverage but I have to say I love the video! The scenery is gorgeous and I just love the positivity and energy of the song.
I really love this track! It's incredibly catchy, and the dancers in the video keep it engaging enough to watch. I'm not super into the font/colors of the lyrics, but I do appreciate the contrast to the black and white video. Like I said though, the track itself is super catchy and I'd love to work with it!
I really enjoyed this! Edgy, captivating vocals, and I love the energy of the music. Production wise, something sounds slightly off (maybe the blending of the vocals and music?) but honestly, the whole track is super catchy so it's not a huge hinderance. I also love videos with storylines, so this one is naturally engaging for me.
Super catchy! I love this, it's right up my alley. I actually thought for a second that I was listening to my Spotify Discover Weekly, because this is so close to what I normally listen to. Would love to work together to promote this!
The song itself is really catchy (though I'm not a fan of the autotune—I don't think you need it!) And I love the video. It was a smart choice to put it in black and white, and for as simple a concept as it is, it's really compelling to watch, and it fits the mood of the song really well.
I like this! I like the moodiness of both the song, and the video, it's well matched. I'm also a sucker for a video with a plot, which makes this one all the better. The music itself reminds me of an older, more low-key CKY, so I definitely dig it!
I really like this! It's catchy and I love how fun the music video is. Lots of personality and it makes it all the more captivating. I love that it has a story line, and that you get to know all these characters through the few minutes of the video. Let's set something up!
Pleasantly surprised by this! I wasn't sure what to expect with the artwork and artist name (both seemed to indicate different things to me) but the music is right up my alley. Lots of energy, super catchy. It does feel a little long (I think around the 3.5 minute part is when I started to feel like it should be wrapping up), but that's really the only constructive piece of criticism I have. Great song!
This is really beautiful! You have a wonderful voice, and this song is a great demonstration of it. Lots of strength, and completely entrancing. I can definitely see this reaching a lot of people. I'd love to set something up with you—we can go over the details in the review message. :)
There's something really intriguing about this. I still feel that same album rock vibe to this song as I did the other one you submitted, but I do personaly like this one a bit more. (I still wouldn't describe it as power pop though).
You have a really beautiful voice, and I really appreciate the storyline and grittiness of the video. (I do have an affinity for abandoned buildings though!) Let's connect when you do your review, I'll shoot over my email, and we can see about working together.
Really compelling video! I love how fast paced it is with all the images, and how each one is so different, and yet they all seem to fit togehter really well. Honestly, I'm not sure that I would have listened to this song on my own, or just as audio, but with the video, I really wanted to keep watching, so I think that says a lot. It adds a lot of value.
