About Us A boutique transatlantic UK & US publicity service

Formed by PR specialists, Michelle Kerr and Kirsten Sprinks in June 2012 after the closure of the Roadrunner Records UK office, COSA NOSTRA PR supplies a boutique transatlantic UK & US publicity service catering to a wealth of top rock industry clients.

With combined experience in excess of 40 years in the UK rock music industry, Michelle and Kirsten have amassed a wealth of contacts at print and online media throughout the UK. They pride themselves in knowing how best to break and subsequently build new artists, as well as gain top coverage for and further develop established acts. Having worked with many key clients from day one for the life of their internationally successful careers (Slipknot, Trivium, Black Stone Cherry, Killswitch Engage, and Stone Sour among them), and many others for over twenty years (Machine Head, DevilDriver, Max Cavalera), this fact alone is testament to both artist and management’s confidence in COSA NOSTRA PR’s skills.

With more than 400 UK magazine front covers under their belt, Michelle and Kirsten have delighted in working with a wide range of artists through the years, including Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Steven Wilson, Airbourne, Within Temptation, Fear Factory, Every Time I Die, Alexisonfire, Heaven & Hell, Nickelback, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Five Finger Death Punch, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Steve Miller Band and many, many more.

Initially operating in the UK, in September 2017 COSA NOSTRA PR welcomed Los Angeles-based Charley Bezer to the family, expanding operations to the USA. Bezer previously served 9 years as Head of PR at Live Nation UK where her responsibilities included running PR and strategy for the company’s UK festival portfolio (including Download and Wireless Festivals) and overseeing publicity for all of Live Nation’s UK touring output (covering a variety of acts ranging from Drake, Rihanna, and Beyonce through to Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, and Mötley Crüe, Fleetwood Mac and Dolly Parton to Biffy Clyro and Avenged Sevenfold), before she moved to the USA to conquer the other side of the pond!

Having offices on both sides of the Atlantic puts COSA NOSTRA PR in the unique position to provide clients with truly aligned specialist campaigns with one team spanning both territories and a forward thinking alternative to traditional and somewhat dated Music PR offerings.
