Ready to slide into the spotlight with the impact (and income) to match? Then you should know Diane Foy, the creator of the Fans, Media, and Industry Attraction Method.
During her 16 years as an arts and entertainment publicist, Diane represented talents such as Perry Farrell, Big Sugar, The Parlotones, Mackenzie Phillips, and Tyler Blackburn.
Diane has been a panelist and mentor at conferences such as Canadian Music Week, Northern Ontario Music & Film, and Indie Week. Canadian Musician, Sun TV, Toronto Star, SiriusXM, and over 30 media outlets have featured her. Diane also hosts the Multi-Passionate Artists podcast.
As a multi-passionate artist coach, Diane loves that she can draw on her photography, fashion, and makeup artistry experience one day and her journalism, PR, and marketing experience the next.
That diverse background allows her to encourage artists to embrace their authenticity, creativity, and purpose as their unique superpower.
“Whenever we have been to Canada, Diane has stepped up, gotten us great press, and brought good people into our circle.”
Perry Farrell, Jane's Addiction
“Diane Foy is one of a handful of publicists that are actually down to earth and treats people like human beings instead of automatons. I so appreciate her!”
Sass Jordan, Canada's Queen of Rock
“Diane has done an outstanding job with the publicity of the Female Eye Film Festival and has continuously secured major media coverage for our films and talent.”
Leslie Ann Coles, Female Eye Film Festival
“D.O.A. has worked with Diane Foy for over a decade and she has consistently delivered features and cover stories in both the mainstream and alternative media, outstanding work!”
Joe Keithley, D.O.A. Canada's Godfather of Punk
Diane has certainly picked up the pace- I’m impressed with how she stays on top of it. …we can see the results!”
Alex Johnson, Big Sugar
