City Bird Publicity is not just another cookie-cutter boutique artist development and public relations
agency. With offices in upstate New York, we are a team of passionate publicists who only work with artists we truly believe in.
At any given time, we only take on a handful of artists, which enables us to pay special attention to each
campaign – big or small. Effective and affordable, City Bird Publicity does its best to get its clients maximum exposure.
