SERVICES

The music business is changing and so is Trespass Music! We are very excited to announce our brand new packages, which are up to date, cutting edge and will keep you ahead of the game! We're minimizing our costs and yours while maximizing exposure. Drawing from all branches of our agency, we now offer new options for clients to choose from with your budget in mind. We always begin with an initial phone call (free consult) to get to know each other and assure a good fit.

We have listened to what musicians have been telling us that they are looking for; the areas in their career where they need the most support and help. Trespass Music is a ‘one stop boutique’ for the songwriter, (booking our roster musicians across the country, working radio promotion as well as media promotion) which enables us to conveniently offer clients exposure across the board. Taking all of this into consideration, we have formulated six new packages: three for Radio and three for Consulting. We also offer Airplay Direct and 'theme' pages to our clients, both roster and radio, which is ground breaking! More details below.

Radio Promotion  

Trespass Music has developed strong, professional relationships with an extensive list of DJ’s to get your music heard by radio audiences. Our markets include Folk DJ chart, and FAR chart as well as the overlapping markets of Euro Americana Chart, Roots Music Report and the Americana Chart. We specialize in but are not limited to, acoustic music. Each radio promotion package is individualized with your market and budget in mind. Regional, national and international as well as combination radio campaign plans are available.

Consulting Packages 

The One Off: 

One hour individual (Larry or Michelle,) or 90 minutes team call 

When you are embarking on a new project, a new tour, or shift in your career, you may find yourself looking for a little extra support. The one-off consult session can help answer questions, clarify concerns and keep you on the right track to success. 

The Anchor: 

Intense 3 part strategy session with Michelle and or Larry 

This package is an intense, custom designed, in depth program that helps equip you with the insight you need for a successful career. We work together to give you a solid foundation, a definite plan and an organized outline of what needs to be done and when. We put a system in place that is custom made and specific to each client, taking into consideration things such as personal schedules, short and long term goals, life style, and finances.The strategy session begins with an initial phone call to get to know each other. Then a series of emails which will involve the client answering questions and supplying information. After all received information has been reviewed, we begin an intense one-on-one, custom made ‘workshop’. Finally, a follow-up consult to review, analyze and answer any new questions that arise. 

“From pixels to performances, Tracey’s strategy sessions draw a direct line from hopes to action, revealing potential avenues and distinct goals. It’s like sifting through the basement, clearing out all the cobwebs, and finding that rare John Lennon vinyl worth $525,000. Find out what you have been holding, clear the way, and book a session! It was invaluable to me.” 
Sierra West CA based singer-songwriter

QUOTES FROM CLIENTS

Michelle is the energizer bunny!! One of the hardest working people I know, Michelle pours her heart and soul into every project.She is caring, professional in every way, and extremely dependable. A real pleasure to work with!” 
4 Time Nominee Just Plain Folks Music Awards including New Folk Album, JAM Awards “Top Female Songwriter of the Year” and nominee for “Album of the Year”, NJ Folk Festival Songwriter Competition Winner, and CT Folk Festival Finalist – “Mud and Stone” #10 on Folk DJ Charts, #1 on the Roots Music Report for NJ, #5 Top 50 Folk Albums RMR)  
Loretta Hagen -Award Winning Singer-Songwriter – Trespass Roster & Radio Client  

Michelle Fortier publicized our first release for our own label 42RPM. Michelle did a brilliant job and went far beyond a publicist’s job description. She was not only able to get coverage for the release which included numerous 5* reviews in major print outlets and features in support of our subsequent cross-Canada tour, she also sent it out to radio for us, something most publicity people don’t normally do. The recording spent one full year in the Top 30 on the Roots Music Report charts as a result of her tenacity and hard work. She is incredibly personable and is very levelheaded even in the most tense situations. We’d hire her again in a heartbeat!
Linda McRae Award Winning Singer-Songwriter – Trespass Radio & Publicity Client (“Rough Edges & Ragged Hearts” – Folk-DJ #14, #1 on CKUA, and named Folk DJ Allison Brock’s Pick Of The Week. Canadian Folk DJ-L Airplay #4 in the Folk DJ’s list of Top Canadian Albums, #1 & 2 Top Canadian Songs for Rough Edges & Ragged Hearts and Be Your Own Light and #8 in Top Canadian Artists. #16 Freeform American Roots (FAR)Chart and Pick of the Week at the Vancouver Province. Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee and BC Hall of Fame inductee.

Tracey Delfino and all at Trespass Music – Michelle Fortier and Larry Ahearn included, have all been instrumental in the recent success of my career. From the radio promotion campaign, my music received higher visibility and chart positions that I could have never attained solely on my own. Following that up by taking the 6 week Trespass Talks teleseminar taught me methods in which I have been able to improve my website, internet presence, write more effective press releases to print and radio media, all of which has led to better shows at better venues and better results in the promotion of my shows. And while the radio campaign and teleseminar have long been over, Tracey and her Trespass team are always there to step up and assist with any questions, concerns or to simply be a liason between you the artist and any venues and media you may be dealing with. I highly recommend Tracey and Trespass Music for not only the hard work and care that they put into your career, but for the personal touch and resources they provide. Making you feel like family would be the best way to describe my relationship with Trespass.”
