— Marushka Media (@MarushkaMedia) March 21, 2017
We know that David is the King of content – the music is perfection and it seems like it’s wrapped and ready to go! Now we just need a Queen of Promotion to get it out to adoring fans all over the world!
Jacquelyn Marushka is President of Marushka Media, a boutique PR and Management agency she established in May of 2016 specializing in results-driven, custom brand development, strategic story placement, image consulting and media coaching.
Prior to starting her own business, Jacquelyn launched and led Shore Fire Media’s Nashville office as its General Manager (2013-2016). She created and executed career-advancing campaigns for clients including Brandy Clark, Angaleena Presley, Lee Brice, Aaron Watson, The Americana Music Association and was lead media coach during the 2015 MIDEM conference in Cannes.
Before her term at Shore Fire, she directed corporate, artist and album publicity for Sony Music Entertainment’s Provident Label Group as Vice President of Public Relations. She was responsible for all aspects of PR including story development, imaging, budgets and overall PR campaign execution for artists on five record labels as well as the company’s publishing, distribution and film divisions.
Jacquelyn is a 2004 Leadership Music alum and a member of The Recording Academy, Americana Music Association, Gospel Music Association, SOURCE, CMA, ACM and A2iM and also serves on the boards of Small World Yoga and the Music City Yoga Festival.
As a small business owner she understands hard work but has also mastered the art of life-balance and invests in her community by volunteer teaching Yoga, Pilates and meditation to at-risk youth and non-profit community groups in and around Nashville.
Jacquelyn is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of The University of New Mexico and holds teaching certifications in Power Vinyasa Yoga (Epic Yoga/Baptiste Yoga) and Classical Pilates through the prestigious Power Pilates system.
Jacquelyn has a series of blogs on her site that give you a peek into who she is and what’s important to her. One of her blogs is titled“The Most Important Question You’ll Ever Ask Yourself: What Makes Me Happy?” here’s a segment from the blog:
Do you want to change your circumstances? Do you want a better life? Look deep into your heart and ask: What makes me happy? What makes my heart jump out of my chest? What would I do if I knew I couldn’t fail?
I’m thinking David read this blog before he enlisted Jacquelyn’s services – that he saw much of himself there in her words, and he may have felt he had found a kindred spirit… Finally! His kind of perfect PR Person – but he thought to himself, there’s just one more thing – and it’s a deal breaker – Can she jump?
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child – she’s got THAT covered too!

Archie & Gimli at MOTAB!
If you really want to grow a beard, I can show you how to grow a BEARD!
Then they shared their mutual love for all things Lord of the Rings and entertained the choir with tales of their mutual friend, The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. I must say, today has been an amazing day for ArchuNews!

Queen Creek Memories!
Shelley posted this pic taken at Queen Creek last year! Time has really flown by – that was a whole year ago! There were many memorable performances including his amazing renditions of Don’t Run Away. He poured out his emotions and left them on the stage.
Love this full body vid – even though it’s a snippet, it’s the BEST part of the performance! You can see his hunker down and all the hand motions! I was sitting next to Angela when she filmed this!

This next vid is a little shaky, but it’s the full song and captures the pure emotion of his performance. The audio is great!

This next vid is from Shelley - so you know it’s fabulous! This is from the 3/26/16 performance – some subtle differences, but still AMAZING!

This is why we go to multiple shows!

Fan reactions to David’s new PR Firm:
So big news for the Archuleta! A professional PR Firm to promote David and his new music! I’m hoping for TV ads and invites to sing on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke! In fact, I’d settle for a few tweets and an IG Story from The Man!
Come on Marushka Media – we’re counting on you!

Will this be the week?
Spring Has Sprung!
Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring! Many fans welcomed the warmer weather and celebrated this season of new things - when new plants start pushing up through the rich earth, flower buds burst into bloom, animals welcome cute new babies into the world and we await NEW MUSIC! Now what says “Spring Is Here” more than David wandering through a flower shop surrounded by lovely spring flowers singing his signature love song Crush and picking out pretty (though random) flowers to make a beautiful bouquet – maybe for a sweet gal? These screen caps were taken from the Pepsi Smash video of Crush – it’s still rather awkward that he’s walking through the shop singing Crush and selecting various blooms to make a bouquet, all the while wearing a headpiece mic lol – who does that? Also, it still appears that he leaves the shop without paying for the flowers! Maybe he pre-paid using the Flowers-R-Us app! Crush – Pepsi Smash (credit: 24HourFlowersTV) * * * * *
It’s been a long month, and the tick, tick, tick of the clock reminds us that time is indeed passing, albeit verrrrrrrry slowly for
impatient fans waiting for new music! Hey David! We know you know we’re waiting, and we’re trying really, really hard to be patient! Kari promised us that a storm is coming, and we’re READY! Every day feels like it has 25 hours! We know you have a collection of watches, so surely you know the time is drawing near for you to debut your new music!
Of course this is all in good fun, and we know that David is putting his heart and soul into this new album – and it will be ready… when it’s ready. You can’t rush perfection! Whenever I find myself feeling anxious, or getting impatient, I remember David’s song Who I Am - how taking time is important to him - I also remember, that like the lyrics from You Can, “…good things come to those who wait”. Who I Am (Credit: ShellyFOD) So David, take all the time you need to make this album everything you want it to be – we know it will be a reflection of who you are now, and also a large part of who you have always been – an amazing artist whose music touches our hearts and inspires us to always be true to ourselves, no matter how long it takes. * * * * *

We feel your pain Louis, we feel your pain…
* * * * * OK it’s week three of March – and it’s off to a slow start, but like Kari said – David’s music is like a hurricane – we never know where or when it will hit! So everyone stay alert and keep your eyes and ears open – there’s new music coming soon! And I think this would be a wonderful idea…
