As a writer and music journalist I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mike on a variety of projects over the years. In every case I’ve found him to be one of of the best and most attentive publicists in the industry. Mike’s attention to detail combined with a clear vision of his client’s goals and his friendly demeanor are just a few of the reasons why he’s been so successful. He’s results-oriented, professional, has great communication skills and bridges the gap between artist and journalist in a way that’s second to none. I look forward to continuing our relationship with his new company, Milestone Publicity.
There are a lot of publicists in the music world, but not that many who are fun to work with, passionate about their projects, and good at what they do. Mike checks all of those boxes which is why he is on the short list of referrals that I’m happy to give to artists. And it’s a very short list.
If this were a ‘Yelp’ review, I’d give Milestone Publicity and Mike Gowen 5 Stars. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Mike at both his old PR firm and now Milestone, and I can say with 100% confidence that Mike continues to achieve quality results. His ability to read the ever changing press landscape has been extremely helpful in achieving our press goals and growing the band’s fanbase. A great communicator, easy to work with, and on top of everything- I can’t say enough good things about my experience with MIke Gowen and Milestone PR.
When you hire a publicist, their worth is measured in only one way: results! I’ve worked with Mike Gowen for a number of my clients and results are exactly what we get - TV, audio and video premieres, wide-reaching press releases, and special consideration that only a connected, experienced publicist can negotiate and secure. Mike is my ‘go-to’ guy for publicity. He should be yours too.
Honestly, I was not fully aware of what a music publicist did. I had an idea of what the job description was, but my knowledge only scratched the surface of the importance of having a music publicist on your team. Mike was gracious enough to share the scope of his work, leave time to consider, and then send a detailed outlook of what he would do along with projected outcomes of the relationship. Mike has gone above and beyond what I expected and has helped us further our career. Not only will we continue to use Milestone Publicity and Mike, but we see it now as an integral part of our success.
Mike Gowen is a champion of others. Aside from doing everything he says he is going to do, his ideas were key in rolling out solid PR for our releases (Rolling Stone ‘top 10 Country Songs,’ single premieres, etc.). It’s not everyday that you find relationships where you feel energized after every conversation. Our career is growing in many ways because of Mike’s passion and belief. When he believes in you, your outlook changes and affects other parts of your career. We can’t thank you enough, Milestone Publicity, for your support from Day One.
