Words for music…

Solving artists’ copywriting woes, Just The Type supports musicians, labels and publicists with the writing of biographies and press releases.

An arranger of words and teller of stories, Just The Type is the prose-personality of Manchester-based music-lover and writer, Lisa.

Packing up her favourite records, song-list filled notebooks, DIY cassettes and VHS mixtapes (always cut at precisely the right moment!) Lisa embarked upon a magical mystery journey to Manchester.

Satisfying her indie vinyl needs she became an expert ‘packer’ fulfilling mail orders at Piccadilly Records alongside pursuing her journalistic endeavours as Staff Writer for The Fly magazine.

A lover of vintage shirt prints, and former publicist for independent national press agency In House Press, Lisa represented Toro Y Moi, John Maus, Telekinesis, Wye Oak, Jon Spencer, Charles Bradley, Girl Talk, and Dan Deacon to name a few. Through such campaigns she honed her craft, writing copy* for a variety of well-known and emerging artists.

Today Lisa continues to share her music pr knowledge by working alongside local and international musicians to help them tell their stories. She regularly shares words of wisdom through diy wordshops and offers up free #TypesTipsTuesdays advice on Instagram.

So whether you want to slap your audience in the face or subtly suggest and influence, tell Just The Type about your music.
