Today’s interview is with Stacey Sherman, founder of RSP Entertainment Marketing. Hear how she met Cee Lo Green, tweeted from Dick Vitale’s phone, and would rather sit on a road case than in a seat at a show.
• Most RSP Entertainment clients are unsigned, so they need Stacey’s help really bad!
• RSP focuses mostly on publicity and media consulting for independent musical acts.
• She set up a backstage meet and greet introduction for Dick Vitale at a Lionel Richie show (and tells a great story about it during the interview)
• Spoke about the importance of PR to a group of NARAS musicians (the Grammy people) at a NYC event
• Interviewing Lita Ford as the special guest host for the Brassy Broadcast
What did we learn from the interview:
• She is all about promoting other people.
• Others think she is a unicorn because magical, weird connection things happen to her.
• Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The smartest people realize that they don’t know everything. You can learn something from everyone you meet if you are open minded.
• People matter. Treat people with the respect and simple courtesy that everyone deserves and you might be surprised how far you’ll get.
• Getting thrown out of your comfort zone can sometimes be just the thing you need to start doing what you were really supposed to be doing all along.
• Trying to get musicians signed is not as glamourous as you might think, it’s a lot of work and there is a ton of rejection.
• She’s all about projecting a professional business image, but loves to drop the “F-Bomb” in her personal life.
• At a show, she is most comfortable backstage sitting on a road case.
