…and what some have said about us...

“I have worked with Dave at Tenacity on several UK tours now, as well as around my most recent album release. He gets fantastic results, but is also a great guy to get along with. I know I can rely on him. He loves music, knows the business – and it shows.”

Steve Cropper (Stax Records and The Blues Brothers)

"Thanks for all you do. It's a real privilege to work with a pro like yourself" Jay Osmond (The Osmonds) 

"It's always great working with Dave at Tenacity - and he knows so many nice people!" (Jim McCarty, The Yardbirds) 

The Blockheads have worked closely with 'Tenacity' for over 10 years now and they have proved to be a highly professional organisation with a grounded knowledge of music and musicians.Moreover their reputation, reliability, style and work ethic is commendable. You WANT profile, they GET you profile. 'TENACITY’… says all you need to know about their attitude to procuring publicity”.

Mick Gallagher (for The Blockheads)

 “I’ve worked with Dave Hill and Tenacity PR on a large number of music based projects over the last twenty five years.  He is thorough and efficient but most of all enthusiastic and very knowledgeable so he takes a keen interest in every project and adds value.  The secret of his success is the fact that first and foremost, he’s a music fan himself.  Tenacity PR will always be the first call for any UK music projects I’m involved with”. Ray Laidlaw (Lindisfarne and The Lindisfarne Story)

“Thanks for the brilliant job that Tenacity have performed for Colin Blunstone and me during our UK tours. Look forward to working

with you again in the near future!”

Rod Argent (The Zombies)

“Be warned, you’ll will meet the media.

Dave Hill’s Tenacity are well named”

Steve Hackett (Genesis)

“A real love of music, enthusiasm and er, ‘tenacity’.

What more could we want?”

John Dagnell (Park Records – Maddy Prior, Steeleye Span,

Kirsty McGee, Rock, Salt & Nails)



"You've done a sterling job! Keep up the good work!"

Hamish Stuart (Average White Band, Paul McCartney, Chaka Khan, etc)

“It’s a pleasure to work with Tenacity and Dave Hill. He is an affable Geordie with a solid track record of effective work and a genuine love of music in many forms. He is both a fan and an expert observer, author of the definitive history of Lindisfarne and PR for my band Animals & Friends and many others. Dave is hard working and well connected. I do more interviews now that I did in the 60’s!”

John Steel (The Animals)

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Dave and the gang on ‘Just Pickin’’. Im certainly looking forward to working with them again”

Steve Phillips (Notting Hillbillies)



“When Dave got in touch to suggest the ‘Nearest Hits’ album, we did everything we could to avoid working with him. He’s always had a rampant ego and we didn’t want him getting in the way of our own rapid progression towards middle-aged hedonism that we had begun perfecting with QUO and WHITESNAKE. Anyway – the idea might have been his, but WE thought of the title. I mean, how would YOU react to a guy who tries to convince you that the original ‘YOUNG & MOODY’ album was one of his favourite albums ever? It samcked of crawling to us. Still, DESPITE his talents, the album turned out great, but why the hell did we let him work on anything after that?

Bob Young (Status Quo)

"We always use Dave Hill of 'Tenacity' to promote our concerts and have found him to be the epitome of professionalism; self-motovated, knowledgeable,sensitive and supportive. We're convinced that his efforts have been central in building up our profile and ensuring attendances at our concerts continue to grow."

Colin Blunstone (The Zombies)
