Spirit of the Water Promotions

Spirit of the Water is a small, supercharged music promotions company based out of the Pacific Northwest, United States.  I began looking for ways to get my music heard since my first release in 2009, with The Autumn Electric and have continued to learn and grow.  After highly successful DIY promo work on my band Moon Letters' albums in 2019 and 2022, I took on the release of Chaos and the Cosmos' Our Song in early '23.  I'm currently working on promotion and distro for Sacramento, CA based artist Zac Bauman, and will be announcing more projects in the early new year.

Please reach out for possible collaboration at  My goal is to always be positive, straightforward, and find the right budget to fit each project.  Check out some past projects and testimonials below.  Thanks, ~ Michael

Zac Bauman - Baroque Pop Sacramento, CA

Chaos and the Cosmos - Art Rock

Seattle, WA / Honolulu, HI

I worked with them on their epic 2023 full-length release, Our Song.

"We hired Michael Trew to promote Chaos and The Cosmos's debut album in Spring 2023. Michael's efforts resulted in multiple band interviews, many album reviews (both written and video), and multitudes of radio plays beyond our expectations. More than half of our traction has been international. Michael communicated great throughout the engagement and made it a very positive experience. We are very happy with the results, especially being a new band with little known members. We look forward to working with Michael for the our next album release."
