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
Senior 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.

Miranda was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Philadelphia to study Music Business at Drexel University, where she is currently a senior. She is a GrammyU ambassador for the Philadelphia Chapter, where she helps put on interview panels and events for Recording Academy members and students.

Natalie Barth
Publicity Intern
Natalie is a college student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Public Relations and Advertising, but her real passion revolves around music. Born and raised in North Carolina, she found her footing within the music industry while working for multiple music marketing companies, both in the United States and abroad. This year, she finally started to release her own music, which has always been a dream of hers. When she’s not studying or working, you can find her writing and producing songs or working as a barista at her local coffee shop, perfecting the latte art on a vanilla oat milk latte.
