Comments from some of the musicians/businesses who have been featured on the site:
CALLING APOLLO, CARDIFF, SOUTH WALES, UK
"It's comforting to know that there are individuals out there that still put the music first! It's groups like Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers that make being a musician all that better. There are so many bands out there that work so hard but still struggle to break down that PR wall, when all they really wanna do is write songs and play shows.
Jayne’s immense enthusiasm for discovering and supporting emerging bands is contagious and makes being in a band that much better. Keep up the amazing work!"
ED MARGULIES, MANAGER, ZODIAC N BLACK, LONDON, UK
"There is very little in the way of support for emerging bands so to get the chance to work with someone like yourself is a real blessing. The industry needs people like you … you are a shining light …You clearly care for what you believe in and somehow put the desires of others before those of yourself which is the most noble thing a human being can do. It's a pleasure to have had the chance to get to know you”.
YOUSEF EL'OMARI, GUITAR/BACKING VOCALS, GHOSTS OF FORTUNE, LONDON, UK
"As a struggling unsigned band the opportunity that Jayne has provided to us and other groups cannot be underestimated. In an industry so often focused on sensationalism, hype and ultimately soulless corporate music PP+P is a shining example of integrity, objectivity and a genuine passion for music."
MICK BURNS, VOCALS/GUITAR, FERAL SUN, LONDON, UK
"We can not explain enough how much we appreciate the support Jayne from Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers has been giving us.
Her passion and love for music is inspiring and contagious. The world needs more people Like Jayne"
LEE LANDRUM, LEAD GUITAR, THE HUSH, LOS ANGELES, USA
"Your dedication to finding new music is much appreciated by bands and music enthusiasts. Thank you for including THE HUSH in your US showcase! We are hooked on PP&P and will continue to share your great site with our fans. You rock!"
"Good to see things like this!"
ROB PRATOLA, DRUMMER, MARCH OF THE MANNEQUINS - New Jersey, USA
"It's a great feeling when you find a place where your music is appreciated. Paradiddles, Plectrums & Posers is a site that has almost as much personality as its founder. With hand-picked talent from the US and UK, we were placed among a variety of solid bands and worth-hearing acts that are on the rise from underground beginnings. The support and hospitality has been outstanding and we're honored to be one of your top picks worthy of promotion. Thanks from New Jersey (USA)."
JEWELS LINDT, SINGER/SONGWRITER - Bristol, UK
"I feel honored to be on this website. There are not many genuine people who want to promote for the love of new music rather than money anymore, This has helped boost my portfolio and make more connections so If I ever make it big you'll be getting invites to vip parties for sure haha :-p ".
ADAM WILLIAMS, DRUMMER, THE LAST CARNIVAL - Brighton, UK
"The music industry wouldn't be in such a mess if it was full of people like Jayne. Thank you for including us on your site, for your enthusiasm for our music and for taking the time out of your day to maintain a very cool site dedicated to great new music",
TERENCE WARVILLE, GUITARIST/SONGWRITER, SLAM CARTEL - London, UK
"As a rock band doing the thing we love, Slam Cartel are grateful to this cool site for supporting us, as many bands gone by know, rock bands have no support from the industry in the UK whatsoever, they have to make it for themselves to cover costs and fees to carry on doing what they like doing, this means putting yourselves out there yourself. If it wasn't for sites like Paradiddles, Plectrums & Posers the task of being a rock band would not be affordable, thanks for your time, effort and faith PP&P".
JONATHAN HOPKINS, VOCALS / GUITAR, CAESARS ROME - South Wales, UK
'It's great to be featured as part of your website, so many bands go under the radar these days because they don't have the funds to pay for PR, great to see people who love music for what it is and going out of their way to get people to hear bands like us. Great job! Keep it up!"
LEWIS BRAY, GUITARIST, THE UNDIVIDED - South Wales, UK
"In such a heavily saturated music scene it can be hard for bands to be noticed. PP&P is a great resource for bands and music fans and actively supports the hardest working and best sounding new bands - thank you for featuring us! They work HARD to help push their featured artists and we have even found a few great bands on the website that we probably wouldn't have found otherwise. Keep up the good work!"
TOBY MACFARLAINE, VOCALIST/GUITARIST, O.W.L.S. - London, UK
"Great site with a startling array of facts and resources. One of those things where you go, "Yeah, ok, but where's the catch?" Well, there isn't one. My hat is resolutely doffed."
ALLY, BASSIST, THE DETOURS - Scotland, UK
"Big thanks to PP&P for showcasing us, these days it's hard for musicians to obtain any sort of exposure without paying mega silly money so sites like this are worth their weight in gold. We're mighty proud to have the honour of being the first Scottish band featured on the site, we're sure we'll be the first of many."
MATT MITCHELL, VOCALIST, FURYON - Brighton, UK
"Thanks for supporting Furyon .. Its a pleasure to see websites like yours supporting good music and pushing the word out there! Its a great force .. Keep doing it as we keep writing and recording music .. thanks again"
BEN CHRISTO, GUITARIST, NIGHT BY NIGHT & THE SISTERS OF MERCY - London UK
"Thanks so much for featuring us on Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers; it's really appreciated! The PPP site is great, with ace content (really comprehensive, what with promoters' and producers' details, too!) and a nicely consistent page lay-out, which makes navigation very easy. "
JAMES KENNEDY, VOCALIST/GUITARIST/SONGWRITER, KYSHERA - South Wales, UK
"PP&P is an amazing resource for bands & industry alike & is run with genuine passion & dedication. Keep up the good work!"
GETHIN WOOLCOCK, VOCALIST/GUITARIST/SONGWRITER, PROSPERINA - South Wales, UK
"Thanks for the support PP&P! Keep doing a great job supporting up and coming bands"
SCOTT HETHERINGTON, VOCALIST, STUNTMAN MIKE - Scotland, UK
"It's very encouraging to finally see a website with both a discerning editor and audience. The internet is a great thing but is all too easily flooded with every kind of musical act at all levels of ability. For many of those involved in the professional music industry, the frustration for a long time must have been how to separate the wheat from the enormous mountain of chaff! The approach from PPP must be something of a relief to them and the quality of the bands included here is testament to that approach. We are delighted to have been deemed good enough to be included! Great work, keep it up!"
GREG JONES, VOCALIST, KILLING FOR COMPANY - South Wales, UK
"It's great to see a web site that has everything a new, up-and-coming or established band would need to keep the wheels of Rock N' Roll turning! Wales has always produced a lot of talent and I think some great bands will be discovered via Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers! Good on ya Jayne."
OSH JONES, VOCALIST, RED ROOM THERAPY - South Wales, UK
"This is what keeps us alive and keeps us striving. We are honoured to be part of this and anyone who brings energy to the scene is respected by us. Thank you Jayne."

RHAYN JOOSTE, BASSIST, SANKARA - South Wales, UK
"Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers are on the cutting edge of the fluctuating music scene. They are giving space and air to bands and should be supported, end of! If you're a fan of music you will find their recommendations useful. (Plus they have good taste!)"
