Andrew James Johnson

Composer-pianist

Andrew James Johnson wanted to launch his debut classical solo album with the help of WildKat PR, whilst simultaneously engaging us in rebranding his core image and building his profile as an artist in the music and culture press through industry connections and introductions.

For the UK press campaign, we created a strategy that focused on profiles of Andrew in local area press, interviews with him on podcasts, online and print media, and a public performance to commemorate Piano Day 2018. We also aimed to raise Andrew’s profile through the creation of unique content and its placement on influential, targeted social media accounts.
