Who we are

What we do

One Beat PR started out in 2011 as a solo operation run by Liv Willars, working on successful campaigns for the likes of White Denim, Garbage, Au Revoir Simone, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Martha Wainwright, Chet Faker, Stealing Sheep, Deptford Goth, Mark Lanegan, Wild Nothing, My Morning Jacket, Sauna Youth, and The Antlers.

Having played in bands, run an indie music magazine, and with a background working in record shops and at digital music platforms, Liv wanted One Beat to be approachable and accessible to all artists and labels. From household names, to those releasing their first singles, we love working with artists and music we really care about.

Kez Cochrane joined One Beat in 2021. Having started out writing for Goldflakepaint, Kez has since written for a variety of print and online publications including Bandcamp, Crack Magazine and Vice. They are also the co-founder of events promotion and creative agency SNOG, a DJ and a core member of Headfirst Bristol’s Editor Picks.

Our combined knowledge and years in different areas of the music industry means we can also offer guidance to our clients, helping put together strategies and timelines to ensure artists get the very best results from their campaigns.

In recent years, we have worked with Sheer Mag, Ezra Furman, Frankie Cosmos, Los Campesinos!, Calvin Johnson, Housewives, Amber Arcades, Modern Nature, Beach Fossils, Cloud Nothings, OMNI, The Tallest Man On Earth, Trash Kit, and Mercury Prize nominee Gwenno, plus early releases by Black Midi, Squid, and Black Country, New Road.

As well as specialising in online and print press, we also offer assistance in commissioning bio writers and recommending radio pluggers.

We are based in London, Bristol and Sheffield – please feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in working with us.
