The themed pages are a great idea!” Paul Kerr, DJ Americana UK
“Thanks for your brilliance! The theme pages are a great idea. The ability to program radio in a college that takes the listener to another place or evokes emotion is the beauty of community radio.” - Mara Noelle, KVMR
“Hiring Trespass Music to promote my new CD to radio was an excellent decision. Tracey and her team managed to get the CD played all over the US and Europe which opened up opportunities for me to perform in several new markets. She is tireless, attentive and as dedicated to her work as anyone can possibly be. I think the world of her. You will too. ” - Don White MA-based singer-songwriter
“Trespass Music did a great job with my radio campaign. I was very happy with Tracey, Larry and Michelle’s professionalism and also with the amount of airplay that resulted. I would definitely recommend them.” - Chuck Brodsky PA-based singer-songwriter
QUOTES FROM CLIENTS
“Michelle is the energizer bunny!! One of the hardest working people I know, Michelle pours her heart and soul into every project.She is caring, professional in every way, and extremely dependable. A real pleasure to work with!”

Loretta Hagen -Award Winning Singer-Songwriter – Trespass Roster & Radio Client
“Michelle Fortier publicized our first release for our own label 42RPM. Michelle did a brilliant job and went far beyond a publicist’s job description. She was not only able to get coverage for the release which included numerous 5* reviews in major print outlets and features in support of our subsequent cross-Canada tour, she also sent it out to radio for us, something most publicity people don’t normally do. The recording spent one full year in the Top 30 on the Roots Music Report charts as a result of her tenacity and hard work. She is incredibly personable and is very levelheaded even in the most tense situations. We’d hire her again in a heartbeat!”

“Tracey Delfino and all at Trespass Music – Michelle Fortier and Larry Ahearn included, have all been instrumental in the recent success of my career. From the radio promotion campaign, my music received higher visibility and chart positions that I could have never attained solely on my own. Following that up by taking the 6 week Trespass Talks teleseminar taught me methods in which I have been able to improve my website, internet presence, write more effective press releases to print and radio media, all of which has led to better shows at better venues and better results in the promotion of my shows. And while the radio campaign and teleseminar have long been over, Tracey and her Trespass team are always there to step up and assist with any questions, concerns or to simply be a liason between you the artist and any venues and media you may be dealing with. I highly recommend Tracey and Trespass Music for not only the hard work and care that they put into your career, but for the personal touch and resources they provide. Making you feel like family would be the best way to describe my relationship with Trespass.”
Davey O., Trespass Radio Client – “Testing For Rust” (Top 25 RMR, Top 20 Folk DJ Chart), 2013 Kerrville New Folk Finalist
The One Off:
One hour individual (Larry or Michelle,) or 90 minutes team call
When you are embarking on a new project, a new tour, or shift in your career, you may find yourself looking for a little extra support. The one-off consult session can help answer questions, clarify concerns and keep you on the right track to success.
Intense 3 part strategy session with Michelle and or Larry
This package is an intense, custom designed, in depth program that helps equip you with the insight you need for a successful career. We work together to give you a solid foundation, a definite plan and an organized outline of what needs to be done and when. We put a system in place that is custom made and specific to each client, taking into consideration things such as personal schedules, short and long term goals, life style, and finances.The strategy session begins with an initial phone call to get to know each other. Then a series of emails which will involve the client answering questions and supplying information. After all received information has been reviewed, we begin an intense one-on-one, custom made ‘workshop’. Finally, a follow-up consult to review, analyze and answer any new questions that arise.
“From pixels to performances, Tracey’s strategy sessions draw a direct line from hopes to action, revealing potential avenues and distinct goals. It’s like sifting through the basement, clearing out all the cobwebs, and finding that rare John Lennon vinyl worth $525,000. Find out what you have been holding, clear the way, and book a session! It was invaluable to me.”
Sierra West CA based singer-songwriter
“Tracey Delfino helped me pull my head out of the creative abyss long enough to make a sustainable long term business plan that balances my family, creative and business needs. The entire Trespass Music team takes great care of it’s clients.”
