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.
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.

Bizu Yaregal
Publicity Intern (London)

Growing up in the golden era of 90’s POP meant that B always a good ear for the classics. Most of her teen years were spent at concerts up and down the country watching her favourite musicians live and making friends with like minded people.

Journalism has always been something that she has been interested in, and today she continues to contribute and write for various UK and international platforms on the sounds that she is passionate about.

The biggest change in musical preference is probably her taste in music. Although Pop music will always be in her heart, she currently has big love for R&B/Hip Hop with Dave, Stormzy, Big Sean & Alicia Keys just a few artists on rotation.
