Testimonials

“James is that diamond in the rough. We’d gone through quite a few PR people before stumbling upon Carry the 4. Since working with him, our band has achieved things we had previously only dreamed of. The constant diligence and great work ethic from him is something that we personally believe is unparalleled. People like James are a rarity in today’s world when it comes to pushing his artists to their highest and furthest potential. It has been a privilege working with him, and we intend to continue work with him for as long as we can.”
