NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Jennie Boddy has joined the team of entertainment firm, Press Here.
The announcement was made today by Linda Carbone, Chairwoman/CEO of Press Here.
Armed with two decades of experience, in teaming up with the company, Boddy will bring her current roster including TV on the Radio, Feist, Die Antwoord, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, M.I.A., Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more to join Press Here’s roster.
Boddy will develop public relations campaigns and work on strategic development of the company in conjunction with the agency.
"Jennie is one of the most respected and talented publicity executives in the music business today,” said Linda Carbone in a press release.
“In the seven years since our firm was founded, Press Here has quickly become known for creating clever and exciting media campaigns, as well as representing some of the most innovated artists and brands in the industry. Jennie’s dedication, drive and roster could not be a better match and I am excited to welcome her to our team,” Carbone continued.
“I can't wait to join Press Here. They truly remain artist-friendly and innovative and love what they do," says Boddy.
Jennie Boddy began her career in 1988 as the first publicist for renegade Seattle label Sub Pop, described as "Sub Pop's human press dynamo" in Everett True's Nirvana biography.
In 1994, she joined Interscope Records, banging the drum for artists of every genre at every level of acclaim. Whether it's Swedish skeet shooting with The Hives, timing contractions for M.I.A. at the Grammy's, waking Marilyn Manson to film "Bowling for Columbine," surviving two SPIN cover shoots in a year for TV on The Radio, or dancing with Feist on Sesame Street, she has a proven passion and love for her bands (though Boddy laughs, “and I have no pride”), according to the press release.
