Meet the Muddy Paw Family

Leave your mark on the world

Angela Mastrogiacomo
Founder/CEO: Boston, MA
After founding music blog Infectious Magazine in 2009, Angela soon found herself completely immersed in the world of music. After 5 years fielding press releases, coordinating artist coverage, and managing a team of 10-15 writers, she took her love of developing emerging artists to the next level with the launch of Muddy Paw PR in 2014. She now works with a roster of passionate, driven artists, and a team of talented go-getters that make the Muddy Paw family a tireless, thriving, spirited force. She has spoken on panels at SXSW, CD Baby DIY Musician Conference, Canadian Music Week, and Indie Week. She is also a proud curator of the music community Balanced Breakfast. You can find her hanging out with her border collie mix, Sawyer, eating ice cream, cozying up to a good book, or binging on her latest Netflix obsession.
CEO/Resident Adorable Dog: Boston, MA
The Muddy Dog behind Muddy Paw PR, Sawyer is an 8-year-old border collie mix who has as much energy as the day he came to Angela at just 3 months old. He spends his days actively sniffing out all the smells his neighborhood has to offer, patrolling the house against unruly neighborhood dogs, squirrels, and bad guys, and adventuring around North America. He also really enjoys peanut butter. (But I mean, who doesn't?) You can follow his adventures on Instagram @MuddySawyer
Erica D'Aurora
Junior Publicist (Connecticut)
A lifelong passion for music and a love for languages has landed Erica where she is today. Fueled by the desire to spread the word about amazing artists from around the world, she founded the international music blog Musical Notes Global in 2015, which then shortly and naturally led her to a career in PR. When she’s not working, you can always find her enjoying the company of her favorite artists and their latest releases, including her forever playlist staples Bruce Springsteen, Alejandro Sanz, and Laura Pausini.
Tess Rederburg
Publicity Intern (Toronto)
Sock-sliding out of Arts Management at the University of Toronto, Tess landed just inside the doors of Muddy Paw PR, sunglasses and all (depicted above). Having previously worked in the broadcasting and film industries of Toronto, Ontario, she’s ready to get her paws muddy in music. Music is her favourite concept, her strongest suit - and she sure looks good in a tie (not depicted above). She’s a huge live performance nerd. She dreams about being a Creative Director for concert tours so regularly, that it’s clearly about to manifest before her eyes. Ask her for a music recommendation, and she’ll give you five!
Giulia Rossi
Publicity Intern (Toronto)

Born and raised in Milan - Italy - G has always been a creative soul. She started acting and dancing at a young age and soon fell in love with rap music and Hip-Hop culture.

Her American Dream pushed her to pack her 20 years of life in a suitcase and follow her dreams across the globe.

After a sweet taste of her dream life in LA, she moved to London and started making her way in the Industry by working in event organization, music promotion and artist development. She recently relocated to Toronto and she's currently managing an American electronic artist based in London, writing about music and entertainment for an emerging media company and she's now also really excited to be the newest addition to the Muddy Paw PR team!

As the dreamer and free spirit that she is, G is working hard to find her way back to the city of Angels.
