Deborah Rawlins, Portishead
“We have worked with SiouxZ and Magnum PR for nearly 20 years now and are extremely happy with the press campaigns she’s spearheaded.
Following the 2008 release of ‘Third we played just one show in the US – Coachella and Magnum PR co-ordinated a comprehensive campaign around that one show. The album debuted on the Billboard chart at 7 and it was our first release in nearly a decade.
3 years later in 2011, when we toured the US it had been more than 10 years since Portishead had toured North America and she diligently devised a campaign that ensured the band appeared in every top regional daily and weekly in each tour market with both preview and live review coverage. In addition,she secured extensive national press and TV – this was during a time when Portishead had no new material to promote.
SiouxZ understands Portishead’s philosophy regarding their media presentation and we can rely on her to present a campaign that maintains the band’s integrity and slant towards press.
One key element in their relationship is SiouxZ’s ability to listen and to create opportunities with what she’s heard in mind.”
John Fairs, Manager to The Prodigy

‘Having worked with Sioux Z for 20 years i have always found her enthusiastic,tenacious and effective’
Phil Hartnoll, Orbital
From the first press release SiouxZ ever delivered to us for our first album back in 1991, I knew she was the right Publicist for us. She is a very creative writer and her press release was a joy to read. Throughout our 20+ year career, she has been representing our PR in the states. Her dedication, support and loyalty has been fantastic over the years.
She goes beyond the call of duty and guides us in areas that don’t necessarily relate to her specific field of work. She’s brilliant at what she does, a joy to work with with, and most importantly she genuinely loves what she does. She loves music and it’s the driving passion that makes her work so hard. She understands the US market and always delivers great ideas to do with all areas of our career not just PR. We wouldn’t work with anyone else – no one comes close to her experience, knowledge and her expertise.
Lisa DiAngelo, Director of National PR Interscope Geffen A&M
“Working with SiouxZ has been a wonderful experience. She works diligently, communicates effectively and strategically executing press campaigns that are tailored to each artist/client.
SiouxZ exhibits a stellar work ethic and true enthusiasm for the artists/clients she partners with.”
Justin Cohen, Cosmic Opera
I can honestly say that the success of Cosmic Opera would not have been possible without the help and expertise of SiouxZ Zimmerman. Her incredible ability as a publicist, and personal attention to our brand and necessities, created a media surge for our launch that was unimaginable when we started. She was the driving force in creating Cosmic Opera’s 100million plus media impression just weeks after our concert’s announcement. SiouxZ then continued to achieve at the highest level, landing stories from a wide range of publications like New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Wall Street Journal, and even completely non-genre related publications like Travel & Leisure. Her relationships and expertise also shine in video/TV and radio where she has successfully landed us on MTV News, Fuse TV, Sirius XM Radio and many, many more. Thanks to the initial buzz, Cosmic Opera far surpassed expectations and sold out in minutes, and thanks to her ongoing efforts, our company has grown into multiple divisions and new revenue streams in just 1-year.
My first company, Summit Series where I was the initial COO, allowed me to test our various PR agencies and publicists. I never believed that this level of personal attention and sheer results were possible until I met SiouxZ. She’s always there for us, has unmatched positive energy, an incalculably powerful network, never-ending personal attentiveness, a brilliant problem-solving mentality, and advises us on all issues related to our brand as a whole. We are honored to call her our publicist.
Asif Ahmed Shmanagement (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Weekend)
Professionally, I have come to know SiouxZ as an extremely honest and conscientious person and have felt absolutely confident in recommending her for several campaigns over the years. She has always proven to be trustworthy, resourceful in the face of unexpected surprises, and generally hard working. She has become uniquely regarded as both a consummate professional and warm person by friends, colleagues, and clients alike.
A recent email from Emmy Parker, Director of Moog Music & Moogfest
Dear Magnum PR team:
You all are amazing! I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful we are for how hard you worked for Moogfest and Moog. There was a ridiculous amount of press at Moogfest (thanks to you) and you all handled them like angels. I have never seen the press so happy at any event!
SiouxZ, you are my hero! You have been with us literally since day 1. We could not have made it through this without you.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
