Rock Solid PR & Fan Relations Re-launch

Newcastle-based business enjoys second life

NEWCASTLE, FEBRUARY 25 2008: Rock Solid PR & Fan Relations founder Kirri Liepins announced today that, after a brief respite, the locally-based business is returning with all guns blazing.

Kirri, 23, was forced to take a break in 2007 due to illness, but says she is excited about Rock Solid’s return: “I love Newcastle and I’m looking forward to working once again with the incredible creative talent that exists in this city.”

What started in 2005 as a street team management business has grown into a dedicated PR service that caters for many creative entertainment sectors including Music, Theatre, Film, Television, Comedy, Art and Nightlife. Rock Solid offers not only a full range of media and public relations services, but also has a division called ‘Fan Relations’. Based on the belief that the fans are also the employers, Fan Relations bridges the communicative gap between an artist or organization and their audiences.

Since Rock Solid’s inception, it has been involved with local musicians such as Tearsun, The Wireflys, Lout and Wohteba, as well as national acts Jon Stevens (Noiseworks), Thirsty Merc, Andy Clockwise and Melanie Horsnell. Kirri has also volunteered her services to local events such as Newcastle Music Week and the Shootout 24-Hour Filmmaking Festival. Kirri hopes to expand Rock Solid’s musical roster whilst opening her books to other entertainment organizations.

The announcement of the re-launch also indicates the return of the Rock Solid Showcase, an event last held in Hamilton in January 2007. Other events will soon follow.
