SPKR welcomes renowned German music journalist, experienced publicist, and former Wacken Open Air press officer Gunnar Sauermann to their ranks. Gunnar will be the responsible senior press officer for Prophecy Productions and all sub-labels including Lupus Lounge and Auerbach Tonträger, as well as doing full European PR for Dependent Records, Magnetic Eye, and the book publishing company Index Verlag.
Martin Koller comments: “We have been aware of Gunnar`s achievements and international work for many years; particularly due to his coverage of former and present artists on our roster such as DORDEDUH, NEGURA BUNGET, SECRETS OF THE MOON, THE VISION BLEAK, and ALCEST to name but a few”, says the SPKR founder. “It is with great pleasure that we have agreed to formalise our long time friendly relationship by including him into our label family.”
Gunnar Sauermann adds: “Having taken a break from being a glorified (or vilified) babysitter of bands by exploring the world of festivals, it was about time to return to the job – of course, in the middle of an ongoing crisis”, relates the German. “I am extremely thankful to Martin and his crew for this great opportunity and their cordial welcome. Particularly Prophecy Productions have always been a label that has earned my deepest respect for its beautiful releases and exciting roster. I am very much looking forward to work with this amazing team, the labels and bands, and all media contacts in future. Talk soon!”
