UPDATE: As of October 2007, Matt Wright PR is officially closed, and will no longer be accepting new clients. I am now doing similar work at IODA, so please don’t hesitate to drop me a line there.

Matt Wright PR is a music-obsessed publicity shop based in sunny Portland, Oregon. We handle national and tour press for a small group of excellent bands, with a focus on maintaining integrity and connecting like minds. The list of publications our artists have appeared in includes The New York Times, Spin, Magnet, Pitchfork, Paste, The Fader, Filter, Alternative Press, XLR8R, DIW, Punk Planet, Vice, CMJ, Stereogum, NPR Online, Plan B, The Wire, Skyscraper, Music For Robots, and all sorts of other rad places.

Matt Wright has been working on various sides of the music/publicity/journalism matrix for several years now, including stints working alongside Gang of Four bassist and all-around dude Dave Allen at OEbase.com (R.I.P.), and handling local promotion for Holocene and Blackbird Presents. He also co-owns the fledgling Holocene Music label, and manages this crazy band called Blitzen Trapper. He is also typing in third person right now, and is starting to feel kind of lame about it.

PS: Tyler Stout drew my face. Check out his awesome artwork.
