Josh Bloom took me under his wing when I was a flying so low under the radar my feet were dragging in the dirt. He introduced me to labels and national press, and most of all, he believed in me and helped me grow as a musician and songwriter. I am forever indebted to Josh and Fanatic.
— John Vanderslice, Musician
The enthusiasm and professionalism of Fanatic is a great source of confidence for me and my team.
— Sam Valenti IV, Ghostly International
Among the most positive moves we’ve made as a label has been to hire Fanatic.
— Jake Friedman, We Are Free
Both Girl Talk and Black Moth Super Rainbow blew up in a matter of months in quick succession this past year when their labels hired the same publicity company - Fanatic Promotion. That’s hardly a coincidence.
— The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
I can’t really explain how vital Fanatic was in helping VHS or Beta get on our feet. Putting out our own record could not have been possible without the insight and effort that Fanatic is so professional in delivering.
— Craig Pfunder, VHS or Beta
We know we have lots of choices when it comes to promotion, and we’ve chosen Fanatic time and time again.
— Slim Moon, Kill Rock Stars
Each release they have worked for us has been treated uniquely and more importantly, enthusiastically. They have been communicative and do not take a cookie cutter approach to the records they work.
— John Hughes III, Hefty Records
Fanatic knows how to get the job done, ferreting out an artist’s fans with the least amount of copies mailed. They truly deliver.
— Glenn Morrow, Bar/None Records
