EVERY PROJECT IS UNIQUE. LET'S FIND YOUR STORY TOGETHER.

JAZZ PROMOTION

PROMOTION.

Let my proven track record in online and offline PR work for you! Through personalized campaigns tailored to your genre and needs we’ll make your release or event into the success it deserves to be.

STRATEGY.

Rome wasn’t built in a day – and not just because we weren’t on that job. Having a plan is crucial to be able to determine your success in advance: having enough time to promote your cause can make all the difference between making headlines and hearing crickets. Fortunately, I have some experience in getting creative with strategic goals.. And I love it when a plan comes together.

COACHING.

While releasing an album or planning ahead might seem intimidating, I promise you it doesn’t have to be! During one of my coaching sessions we will look at your goals and how to achieve them. I’ve successfully supported artists with release planning, crowdfunding and marketing advice and would love to do the same for you.

ABOUT.

Hi! I’m Arlette, a freelance jazz promoter and media director from The Netherlands.

Originally, I produced and programmed events in The Hague, where I lived most of my life. I’ve also toured with bands such as The Four Tops and The Temptations. In 2015, I decided to spend more time in The Netherlands than on the road and shifted my focus back to PR and marketing. Since then, I’ve worked with clients in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Poland and Russia.

When I have time, I enjoy having beers with unsuspecting jazz musicians and check out shows at my favorite local jazz bar, Dizzy in Rotterdam.

Some Humble pie; I was honored to win a Netherlands Music Industry Award in January 2020, awarded at Eurosonic Noorderslag. In 2021 I am joining the 7 Virtual Jazz Club competition as a juror, which I greatly look forward to – I was a jazz juror for the first time in 2019, at Jazz Across Borders in Saint-Petersburg, Russia and enjoyed it very much. I’ve also had the pleasure of being invited as a speaker at the Why DIY Music Podcast and by Gail Boyd at Alternative Venues for Jazz.

ALBUM PROMOTION

Together with my friends at Jazzfuel, I’ve promoted about 20 records in the last year, achieving 200+ positive reviews, airplay and interviews. We are a solid and experienced team and I could not be happier to work with them - so if you have a release planned within the next couple of months, why not join us!

COPY WRITING

Your story is unique, and I want to help you tell it. The pen is, after all, mightier than the sword, and arguably more fun for everyone involved. I love writing anything from press releases to biographies and from website content to interviews and have done so consistently for several outlets over the last 10+ years.

COACHING

Are you planning a release, but not sure how to plan, promote or fund it? Get in touch. I’ve helped numerous artists achieve their release- and crowdfunding goals before. Nothing is impossible, so depending on what you need, let’s brainstorm and craft a strategy!

EVENT PROMOTION

As the world slowly reopens in 2021 I’ve been fortunate to have been able to contribute to events in several countries already. Whether you are organizing a conference, live stream, hybrid or offline event: let’s get butts in seats and eyeballs on your brand.
