ACCOLADES

“Rob at 1888 Media is a passionate music industry veteran who puts his diverse expertise to great work for their clients.” Piers Henwood [Amelia Artists]

“My band The Material hired Rob as our manager last year. We really enjoyed working with him and trusted him to always have the band’s best interest at heart (which is rare to find in the music world). Not only is he a great manager, but he is also an awesome publicist, which is always helpful for an independent band like ours.” Colleen D’Agostino

Working with Rob was wonderful. He is plugged in, thoughtful, and thorough. He knows his stuff and really has the artist’s best interest at heart.” Hayley Reardon

“Rob Evanoff, of 1888 Media, is more than just a pleasure to work with. He is genuine, honest and always has his artists’ needs in mind. He is constantly thinking of new ideas and fresh ways to approach every scenario. I am extremely glad I came in contact with Rob and will definitely continue to maintain a strong business relationship with him!” Stef w/ an F (City of the Weak)

“Rob Evanoff is the most professional, passionate, and intelligent guy Jag Star has ever worked with. We have been making music for over 10 years, and have worked with many publicists and managers along the way. No one comes close to Rob and his company. Because of his work ethic and ability to ‘think outside the box’, a lot more people know who Jag Star is. Rob is BRILLIANT at his job…not to mention he’s a super cool dude.” Sarah Lewis [Jag Star]

“Rob Evanoff is an asset to any company. I’ve used him now on two different album projects and he came through with great media exposure. He is proactive in getting things done and has a positive attitude. I would definitely hire him again as he’s a great team player.” Gary Wright

Rob did an amazing job for my previous project. He had a ton of great ideas and did more for us in 3 months than we did ourselves in the 3 previous years. On top of that, he’s a good guy and those are hard to come by in this business anymore. Hope to work with him again very soon.” Corey Rozzoni, Adalene/Lights of Marfa

“Rob is an educated, hard working, no bullshit guy looking to get the job done and has supported several record labels that I’ve been affiliated with. I’d hire him!”
Marc Silverman, West Coast Label Liaison, ADA

“Rob is an innovative marketer and brings a unique approach to each project he brings on at 1888 Media. I have hired Rob and his team for several projects, and his services are always top-notch. He’s responsive, detail-oriented and brings new ideas to each project. I love working with Rob, and I know that my projects are being handled by someone with a real passion for his work.”
Nikki Fair – Director, Online Marketing at Rhino Entertainment

“I had the privilege of working in conjunction with Rob Evanoff on a Shanachie Entertainment project and he proved to be a highly efficient and resourceful social media specialist. His willingness to think outside the box and arm himself with the necessary knowledge to acquire media for our artist was commendable. He is resourceful, detail oriented, professional and enjoyable to work with.”
Monifa Brown, VP Publicity, Shanachie Entertainment

▪️this is massively important▪️
we often wear wigs
masking thorns in our twigs
as we try to exist
with twists that persist
🔻
my cloak of invincibility
at times, gets jiggy
as it wobbles
pride gets swallowed
emotion runs wild
equanimity exiled
serenity defiled
🔺
i want to seem perfect
as i hide behind the curtain
i may be a wizard
but i'm not invisible
to the effects of the eternal
i am self-aware of who i am
and want to become a better man
i apologize for my failure
to heed a helping hand
i was hurt at first
fretting the worst
my mind swirled
perceived judgement being hurled
while it took a minute
to fully digest it
your wisdom and insight
showed me the light
it may be a chronic plight
but i'm ready for the fight
to live a beautiful life
thorns, warts, hogs and all
❤️
::thank you for showing me love:: 🥑🥑
te amo avo
guacamole cannoli can be extraordinary
jus don't get crazy wit da gravy
holy. moly.
i shoulda gon ez on the frijole
ya catch my whiff?
ya know what i bean?
lo siento por el overflow
the ancho de mi poblano
si no bueno.
i was totally out of lime
marinating takes time
the recipe was easy peasy
ingredients are you and me
and gravity makes three
a pinch of pepper
a dash of salt
jalapeño, serrano, sriracha
or whateva captcha grabs ya
we can always rearrange
when flavors become passé
the song remains the same
808s to keep you safe
frequencies so crisp
texture so rich
that when life adds
too much cilantro
our guac in the throe
of messico al fresco
i will hold fast
with tomatoes that last
baron avogadro
against the undertow
a stow of ripe avocado
like gnocchi on heaven's door
profiterole to keep us warm
in the eye of the storm.

Before the risin' sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run
And yes, we've bearly just begun 💗
This was waiting for me upon my return home from a highly successful business trip. My heart is overflowing with joy + happiness. I love my niece and nephews so much!
