Smokin’ Novas Join Kiwi Bear PR

We are delighted to announce that Smokin’ Novas have joined renowned UK based PR company Kiwi Bear for their PR & Artist Management.


Brian Bristow & Andrew Hyra, founders of Atlanta, GA based Smokin’ Novas are ready to expand their music and careers into the European market and today signed with Kiwi Bear owner Charlotte Elizabeth for PR, Artist Development & European management work going forward.


This comes after the band have already had a successful two decades making music and have toured with and supported some of the most notable names in the music industry, very often playing at prolific venues. They have also continued to release their own, original music incorporating the best musicians into their creative process which has been highly regarded by radio and media alike.


On making the decision to cross into the European market, Brian said, After some early successes for the Novas in the UK and EMEA markets, we wanted to find a world class PR & radio promotion talent to assist us.   That led us to Kiwi Bear and Charlotte through a recommendation from a fellow artist here in the US.   We’re thrilled to be working with Kiwi Bear and look forward to a long partnership.”


Andrew added, Having toured the UK and Europe with Billy Pilgrim in the mid 90’s, I’ve been excited to get back and bring the Novas music to these audiences.   I feel our wide-ranging Americana style will appeal and Charlotte is the right person to help us take our quest to the next level.”

Kiwi Bear PR works with a number of music artists across a Country, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass and alternative music genre with owner Charlotte Elizabeth stating, “Working with Smokin’ Novas is a new and exciting prospect. I have always championed independent and grassroots artists and it is always a pleasure to welcome an artist who knows and understands the business and who I can work with a part of a team to help them achieve their objectives. Now is a great time to expand into the UK and indeed Europe as audience and growth for Americana, Folk and AAA aimed music is at an all time high”
