Blue Soap Music PR and Plugging

BLUE SOAP is a radio plugging company established in 1999 and one of the excellent contacts who recommend bands for the Fish Pond family.

Instrumental in launching Elbow, I Am Kloot and Tompaulin, Blue Soap progressed to become a purveyor of independent artists including Jim Reid of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Mogwai, The Walkmen, Stephin Merritt, My Morning Jacket, Goldblade, Kings Have Long Arms and many other independent artists.

The team have worked across all sectors of the music industry from the live scene to record labels, local independent stations to national radio brands. They’ve amassed a collective fifty years experience and established an enviable network of contacts, ensuring Blue Soap is one of the most respected and successful radio plugging and PR companies in the UK.

They took the name ‘Blue Soap’ from the b-side of The Associates’ single ‘Message Oblique Speech’. As admirers of both Billy Mackenzie and his unique and maverick approach to music, they took inspiration from his ethos. It summed up what they wanted to achieve.

Their mission is to champion the underground of great but often overlooked artists who are striving to get heard in a world dominated by corporate labels and media.

You’ll find their website here or contact them at info@bluesoapmusic.com. You an also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
