HELLO. NICE TO MEET YOU.

 

Blackstar London is a boutique 360 creative agency for the music industry.

We specialise in building innovative campaigns for artists including development, marketing, global digital strategy, social media, creative commissioning & art direction.

We have worked across marketing, creative, social & digital for over a decade, giving the company a broad remit. Led by a small, dynamic team of specialists.

This allows us to focus on key campaigns for artists we really love with something to say.

We don’t blindly follow the crowd, we strategically assess your targets, focus on the importance of your artist positioning & make sure this is reflected everywhere in your shop window with consideration & class.

Oh. And we love it…

I worked on artist campaign with Olivia for 2 years and she was excellent - highly motivated, organised, creative and a pleasure to deal with. Recommended!
— Peter McGaughrin - Redlight Management & Chess Club Records
...Hugely creative and digitally-savvy, with a strong network of creative contacts and a really broad range of digital skills
— Nicola Spokes - Fiction Records/ Caroline International
Her creativity is always what stood out for me, her ideas were always the most exciting and she was constantly exploring new ways to promote our artists in unique ways. She has a love of new technology and innovations which was shown through her campaigns with Haim and NIN. Alongside this she always built great relationships with management and artists.
— Maddy Smith - Polydor Records / Capitol Records
... Bursting with creative, disruptive ideas and brings a passion to her projects and artist relationships that bands and managers love
