Brooklyn-based indie label Partisan Records has hired Bryant Kitching as its new Publicity Director.
Kitching was previously at PR firm Shore Fire Media and has overseen press campaigns for Bon Iver, Margo Price, Real Estate, Local Natives, First Aid Kit and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard among others.
Reporting directly to Managing Director Zena White, his appointment will formally commence on February 5th.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Partisan’s current roster includes Cigarettes After Sex, The Black Angels, London electronic duo TENDER and Emel Mathlouthi, the Tunisian protest singer.
Kitching said: “I am incredibly thrilled to be joining the Partisan family. I’ve admired them from afar for several years – both professionally and personally as a music fan. Tim Puttnam is a boundary-pushing force in the industry, and the drive and creativity he puts towards breaking new artists is inspiring.
“It was a fantastic five-year ride at Shore Fire Media, and I have nothing but appreciation for them as I embark on this new venture.”
Zena White, Managing Director of Partisan Records added: “We’re very excited to welcome Bryant to our team. He is an extremely talented publicist with an astute ability to develop narrative and strategy in a way that is valuable to our artists.
“As a label we recognise that marketing and promotion are more integrated than ever before and Bryant’s appointment will elevate our capabilities beyond the opportunities he will be creating for our growing roster.”Music Business Worldwide
