Layale Chaker

Composer and Violinist

Composer and violinist Layale Chaker wanted to increase her profile in the UK and USA through interviews and features across music and regional press outlets, and ensure audience attendance at her concerts in London and New York.

For a combined UK and US campaign, we implemented a strategy that showcased Layale’s high-profile engagements in the first half of 2018, and secured opportunities for her to promote her upcoming album of compositions which will be released in autumn 2018.
