Launched in January 2009, Absolute Publicity Inc., owned and operated by Don Murry Grubbs, is a company founded on the basis of bringing strong ethics and excellence to its clientele.
“Sincerity and strong work ethics are things that have always been of highest importance to me,” says Grubbs. “I launched the company with the determination to bring my clients the public relations excellence and honesty they deserve.”
In the constantly evolving world of the entertainment business, proper publicity is key in keeping an artist’s career in prime condition. Without publicity, what happens? Nothing!

Absolute Publicity Inc. uses newly crafted strategies, as well as the tried-and-true public relations tools to keep one’s career fit, whether it be veteran talent or the aspiring act of tomorrow. The company crafts and molds the proper publicity campaign based on an artist’s own unique needs.
With developed personal relationships with key contacts in print, television, syndicated radio and the online world, Absolute Publicity Inc. gives its clientele a great advantage in seeking appropriate public awareness.
