MEPR was set up in 2006 by myself Mike Exley, ex music journalist with respected titles Metal Forces (1985-1992) Rock Sound and Planet Loud and label manager with Modern Music / Noise International in the mid 1990’s.
Aiming to give back to the industry just some of the experience and passion I have had for Rock and Heavy Metal, M.E.P.R’s goals were quite simple. Basically, to be a Press Office which represents not only labels but also individual artists who have passion and drive for their talent.
Working originally with just label AFM, the company has gone on to take on Hard Rock labels AOR and Metal Heaven, solo artist Lahannya and recently new UK band Lost In Vegas, but the basic principles remain the same. We are not about cherry picking; M.E.P.R remains a company that will dedicate itself to building a product and a name across the board.
Campaigns and promotion are about working with the taste of individuals and it is through personal contact, a dedicated mailing list and dedication to our ‘allies’ that we feel this industry works best.
We invite all comers and will tailor ideas and price to your needs. No campaign can have parameters; only the desire to be in a better, stronger place than where you first started. We look forward to going forward with you!
The purposes of this web site are similarly simple. We want www.me-pr.co.uk to be the ‘one stop shop’ for all your promo needs in regard to AFM, AOR Heaven, Metal Heaven, Lahannya and any other artist we work with. Regular News updates, biographies, photos and exclusive interviews will hopefully make this web site a tool for any writer or editor to come to whenever they need information on our partners or artists.
Bear with us whilst it is in development and we look forward to hearing your views on it as we go along.
Thanks to; Wikipedia and Rockdetector (for all the info.), All our partners, bands and Andy Fairburn for help on this web site, and to you for using it.
