Anna founded Decent a year ago, after taking charge of the PR for her own band, electropop duo Moodbay.

Anna is from the North-East, UK. After studying French at Oxford University, she worked in art galleries and museums, both at home and abroad, including the famous Drouot auction house in Paris and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. She started writing music while working at these places, and then went to study a songwriting course at BIMM Manchester. There she found Moodbay partner, producer-songwriter Alfie Cattell. The pair have gigged across the UK, and are gaining success over on radio, with their latest single 'Like Nobody Else' having recently made it to the BBC Wales A Playlist for 3 weeks running. 

Realising the music industry is where she belongs, Anna loves running Decent Music PR, and helping other bands to gain traction.

Chloe is currently in her third year of studying Mass Communications with Public Relations at Northumbria University. Here, she has learnt about how the media influences our daily lives and the world around us. This has enabled Chloe to gain a greater understanding about contemporary media, communication, and cultural studies. 

 

Spending her free time volunteering for Shout, Chloe is ardent about helping others. For this, she responds to texters in crisis and works with them to de-escalate their situation. In doing so, Chloe has strengthened her communication, problem solving and crisis management skills, plus, her ability to think quickly and to work under pressure. 

 

Music is something that has always interested Chloe, whether this involves her listening to Spotify, volunteering at her local music centre and favourite music festivals, or attending countless gigs. Some of her favourite artists include; Foals, Metronomy, Kendrick Lamar, Nicholas Jaar, James Blake, Tyler The Creator, Joji, and Men I Trust. Merging her love for music and the knowledge gained from her degree, Chloe is excited to help artists gain the exposure they truly deserve.
