Personable. Passionate. Persistent.
Based in the Los Angeles area, Raquel Figlo’s passion is creating brand awareness and customer loyalty for her clients. Founder of Raquel Figlo Public Relations, she has worked with a wide array of clientele from fashion lines, and night clubs, to musicians and comedians, receiving testimonials that praise her professionalism, creativity, and forward-thinking concepts. Her upbeat enthusiasm and genuine caring nature raise the bar in customer satisfaction. Raquel weaves together strategic publicity campaigns, influencer outreach, media pitching, and popular social events to fashion a brand’s golden reputation.
She often speaks on panels, focusing on topics about the importance of media relations. In any industry, she believes it is about your connections and relationships you have with those connections. Raquel encourages others to rid yourself of labels and be whatever you want to be. Back in March 2019, she spoke on the panel, “Ladies Take The Lead” on Business and Beauty, on how the right look can propel your business forward.
Raquel’s work at the world-famous Key Club in Hollywood as an Event Manager back in 2011 opened up journalism opportunities for her to connect with music publications Rock N' Roll IndustriesMagazine, metalshoprocks.com,
Currently, she is working with a multitude of rock and metal bands, one of which is a female-fronted band – Blue Midnight. Blue Midnight is a rock band out of Los Angeles. Fronted by 23-year-old Justine Glaser, she has made a name herself in just two years of starting the band. With musical influences from Muse, Nightwish, Evanescence, and Korn, Blue Midnight made the Music Connections 100 Top Live Unsigned Bands of 2018 and will be playing Afertshock in October 2019.
Raquel has brought her passion for building female communities and giving them a voice in an industry that is still mostly male-dominated. Through her conversations with industry folk, Raquel learned that even males are recognizing the inherent lack of female voices in the metal genre. Raquel works hard to get her client’s talents recognized through networking, supporting the scene, and supporting other shows.
Raquel also represents David Silveria’s (original drummer of Korn) new band BIAS, who are making headlines all over the radio with their single “Pity”. BIAS was recently interviewed by OC Weekly and Doc Coyle's Ex-Men podcast. Her work with diverse bands gives Raquel the ability to link her clients together on the same bill. Both BIAS and Blue Midnight performed together in Tarzana in May 2019.
