Publicity Director, Jen Fritz, began her career in the music biz at Nettwerk and New Music West, before landing at Frontside Group as VP of Media Relations. During her 6 years at the helm of the publicity division of Frontside Group, Fritz ran successful national publicity campaigns for many music & entertainment clients, including: Debbie Harry, Matthew Good, Nikki Sixx, Small Sins, Said The Whale and the Barenaked Ladies. In 2009, Fritz left Frontside Group and began freelancing her PR services with a variety of clients including: VANOC, Strut Entertainment and Sony Music Entertainment Canada, which ultimately led to the formation of her own music PR firm – Fritz Media.

With funding through the Music Company Development program, Jen is aiming to grow her company, adding a combined Publicity Assistant / Social Media coordinator for the upcoming year. Through this project Fritz Media expect to be able to provide a higher level service to their clients, take on new business, and expand their social and digital media offerings.
