Top Ten of 2017: Bill Benson of Team Clermont

From clients as widely known as Norah Jones, Sigur Ros, Shovels And Rope, and REM, to established indie artists and labels such as Sufjan Stevens’ Asthmatic Kitty Records, Mute Records, and Dead Oceans, to self-released artists like Cheers Elephant, Curse Of Lono, or Kristoffer And The Harbourheads the Team Clermont publicists seek out maximum exposure for their staggeringly talented roster of clients.
On such publicist is Athens, Georgia’s Bill Benson, who co-founded the independent marketing company.
