What Folks Are Saying About Jenni Finlay Promotions

Jenni's on top of it."   James McMurtry

"Jenni is the very best at what she does.  There's no one more knowledgeable about the music, and when I see I have a package in the mail from Jenni, I immediately listen to it."  Vicki Pepper, ALTVILLE MD

"Jenni Finlay works a record with passion, integrity and a deep coolness. She got me to #1 in 4 weeks. Proof enough." Ray Wylie Hubbard

"Jenni Finlay is a total pro and a pleasure to work with. Long may she reign!!” Jeremy Tepper, Outlaw Country, Sirius XM Satellite Radio

"Every now and then you meet someone that does a killer job and is also a combination of funny/smart/nice. That's how I think of Jenni. It's been so great working with her. I can't say enough nice things about her. Thank you ma'am!" Danny Barnes

"Jenni supports the artists and radio stations that she works with, including this one, with commitment, passion, creativity, integrity, reliability and timeliness that is unsurpassed. And, when she gets behind an artist, well, I KNOW that they are worthy of my attention. It seems that the common thread among her artists is their individuality -- they all have personalities that are larger than life and simply must be heard. Quite frankly, if you're not spinning Ray Wylie Hubbard, James McMurtry and the other artists she supports, then you're not Americana." Warren Catlett, Radio Free Americana

"Jenni Finlay CARES! All too rare, these days. She can do no wrong." Gurf Morlix

"Jenni is a rootin' tootin' six gun shootin' winner. I'd recommend her to the Devil, himself, should he decide to take his show on the road." - Kinky Friedman

“Jenni Finlay proves you can be hundreds of miles outside Nashville and get the job done with aplomb. We worked on the current James McMurtry album together and through a rare combination of great music, non-stop touring, press and radio, James made a estimable career comeback. The radio story grew weekly until James topped the charts for weeks. He remained on the chart for months. The level of sustained interest at radio proved there was a star behind the scenes as well as one onstage. I would recommend Jenni as a first-rate Americana radio specialist in a heartbeat.” Cary Baker, President, conqueroo

"Jenni is the belle of the Americana ball. I love working with someone who knows how to get things done and is still fun enough to hang out with!" BettySoo

"Jenni Finlay is a tireless worker/ promoter of music she truly believes in. She was raised on songs since her days as a wee toddler and she doesn't work something unless her heart's in it. And what a heart she has. She's earned the respect of her peers and is able to open doors and help musicians further their careers in these turbulent times of this crazy music business we call home. I will definitely use her services again on my next release. Plus, she always takes my calls and I'm kind of a weirdo so at least I get to talk to a real human being every once in a while." Steve Poltz

"Radio promotion is a tricky business. Are you really getting the bang for your buck.....At least you can feel good about forking over the promo money if you are working with someone who's trustworthy.....Jenni Finlay is that and more.....She cares about the artist. She knows how tight budgets are nowadays and sees to it that the artist's promo money is spent wisely......I travel all over the country and do a lot of on-air interviews at various radio stations...I mention Jenni's name and always get a positive response......that's a good thing for her artists. Good work Jenni." Lloyd Maines

"We've been trained to believe that the radio world is fickle, jaded and cut-throat. To some degree it is, but Jenni Finlay is one of those special people in the middle of it all. She's got heart and know-how! In my 14 years of dealing with radio promotion from the artist's perspective, Jenni is by far my favorite person and I look forward to having her on my team for years to come!" Ben Kweller

"Jenni Finlay is so talented, so inventive, so gifted at what she does she makes her competitors jealous. In horse racing back in Kentucky they would say she is sooooooo far out in front she is showing the rest of the pack a clean set of heels. But any way you word it, this is one girl who knows how to get the music heard! We are forever in her debt." Sid Griffin/The Coal Porters

"Long before I first met Jenni at the Non-COMMvention I was a fan. Her clients represent a virtual "who's who" of prominent and front-running musicians. The combination of this, her incredible personable manner and long list of contacts in both commercial and non-commercial radio make her representation most effective when it comes to serious radio airplay.” Cliff Anderson, WSGE

"Jenni takes your music and mixes it with her passion for promotion. She makes you feel secure in knowing she is going to find radio that embraces your songs, reaching the very people who will enjoy the music the most. Austin is blessed to have such a talented, elegant and intelligent radio promoter who cares not just about the songs, but about the people making the music, too." - Sara Hickman

“For an artist, the greatest gift is to be able to concentrate on writing and performing while knowing that someone else is making the right calls on his behalf. Thanks to Jenni, I have that luxury. Her results have been incredible and the difference she has made in my career is astonishing. She makes this fun!!!” Jason Eady

"What I like about Jenni is, she never bugs me with an artist who isn't right for my show. Could be that she takes the time to research these things, or could simply be that her entire artist roster is awesome. Or maybe both. Either way, we have done some really cool stuff together since Roadhouse signed on, and I look forward to a whole bunch more." Chris Mosser, KVET-FM Austin, The Roadhouse

"Jenni Finlay brings a level of passion and integrity to her work that would be near impossible to surpass.
