so much MOORE media Celebrates 20th Year In 2008 


"I never take a project that I don't believe in, and it's important to me to know that I can make a difference in an artist's career. When my artists are successful, so am I."- Martha E. Moore     


Martha in London phone boothNashville, TN - When Martha Moore opened the offices of so much MOORE media in 1988, she threw the doors of her "boutique" firm wide open by announcing her first client, Johnny Cash.  Since its inception, the company has specialized in media relations for Independent artists, taking innovative avenues and harnessing new technologies to help her clients reach their goals.  Her natural charm, combined with her passion for music has helped Martha grow an ever-expanding list of clients.   Moore has worked with a wide range of acts, from "new" artists like Todd Fritsch, Jeff Griffith, Lantana and Lisa O'Kane to established artists like Cash, Hank Cochran, David Frizzell, Jerry Reed, Sylvia, the Amazing Rhythm Aces and the late Big Al Downing.  She has nurtured the careers of singer/songwriters Karen Taylor-Good, Jeffrey Halford, Walter Hyatt and Victor Mecyssne Anthony, and is known for taking her clients from local and regional acclaim to national and international prominence. However, if you asked Martha to name a 'favorite,' she is likely to pick legendary country singer/songwriter Hank Cochran; he's been with Moore for an astonishing 12-year run.  "Hank is just a jewel," she says.


Known as "Skates" to her pals up and down Music Row (and around the globe); Moore is fun-loving and "high-amped." No one can question her work ethic, and her talents are many - and diverse. She is a member of the ACM, AMA, CMA, NARAS, NATD, Roots Music Association and SOURCE, and was named to Cambridge's Who's Who of Executives for 2007-2008.  Martha has guest-lectured at Belmont University on three different occasions, speaking on the topics of Public Relations, image and international media, and her firm has handled  media for two books:  30 Years On the Road With Gene Autry (Johnny Bond) and No Name of the Bullet (the biography of Audie Murphy, written by Don Graham). In 2001 Moore "jumped the fence" and put on her "media cap" to write a monthly column entitled "roots, boots & 'billy" for the Irish magazine Country Music Plus.  

Martha has handled publicity for Country and Americana artists from 12 states, as well as entertainers from Australia, Ireland, Norway and Scotland.  She's joined many of her clients on their overseas tours, and says with her trademark smile, "I've been in Germany and Holland in zero-degree weather, in England during the floods, Italy and Spain when it felt like 100 degrees and France during all seasons - and I've loved every minute of it."

Upcoming projects for so much MOORE media include:  Randy Thompson, Zane Lewis, Ansel Brown and Sammy Sadler.  She is, she says, "Looking forward to the musical adventures the future will bring."  If the past 20 years serve as an indicator of things to come, the adventures should be plentiful and Moore's business should continue to flourish.
