    “Green Galactic is a mainstay in public relations for progressive projects and creative campaigns for a reason. Always diligent and thoughtful in their process, they have developed key relationships over the years that make a big difference for clients.”
    – Jason Bentley, Music Director, KCRW


    “Green Galactic’s Lynn and Charlene were the perfect partners for our public relations and marketing efforts.  They went well beyond expectations with personalized attention, creative ideas, event planning support, organizational consulting, and website/branding guidance.  The Green Gals are passionate about what they do, savvy, and fun to work with.  They think outside the box and get the job done.  We were thrilled with the results they achieved.”
     Rachel Rosenthal, Interdisciplinary Performer & Living Legend


    “The Green Galactic gang championed our project from the word ‘go.’ Whenever they wrote about it, pitched it, talked about it — even in private conversations with me — it was clear that they believed in what we were doing. Their intelligence and genuine excitement comes across in their language and the energy of their campaigns. Next project, and every one after that, it’s Green Galactic for us!”
    – Dan Froot, Performance Artist and Artistic Director of 501 (see three) ARTS; Client Since 2011


    “On every campaign that we’ve collaborated on over the years, the Green Galactic team has been passionate, enthusiastic, and effective.  There’s no ego – it’s all about the client and approaching the work with a positive attitude, in a flexible manner.   The firm also has amazing media connections, in art, music, dance, etc., which has secured a kick ass amount of press for my projects.  I am completely confident that they have my best interests at heart.  Most importantly, I can trust them completely and they are a total blast to work with.”
    Jon Reiss, Filmmaker, Author, Media Strategist; Client Since 1999


    “We couldn’t feel more blessed to have found Lynn Tejada and the wonderful peeps at Green Galactic to help us bring Rattlestick’s production of Slipping to Los Angeles. They dove so deeply into our project with open hearts, enthusiasm, creativity, flexibility, knowledge, and an all-around insanely wonderful spirit, and we literally can’t imagine a better group of people to have gotten to work with out here for the first time. We would do it again with Lynn and the whole gang in a heartbeat, and we feel like we’ve gained a true member of our theatre family.”
    Daniel & Addie Talbott, Wendy vanden Heuvel, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater’s Slipping


    “In LA right now, Green Galactic is ahead of everyone in the use of social media to promote events. On the first play I worked with them on, they introduced me to the key people in a way that made me feel like I had known them for years, yet there was nothing casual about their approach behind the scenes. They structure campaigns to fit the production, rather than doing it the way it’s always been done before. The promotion of 99-seat theatre has to change, to bring in a younger demographic. That’s Green Galactic territory, I found out.”
    – Jim Talbot, Chair, Outstanding Los Angeles Theatre, GLAAD Media Awards


    “Lynn and Green Galactic are innovative and enthusiastic, sensitive to their clients and to the press, and swiftly responsive.  It is a pleasure to work with them.”
    – Dany MargoliesArtsInLA.com


    “Green Galactic is so incredibly thorough – they take the time to find out what your project REALLY is, then they communicate it beautifully and enthusiastically. And they also have that un-manufacturable quality of hipness that makes them fun to be around. I’ve worked with them on three projects and look forward to many more!”
    O-Lan Jones, full service artist (actor, composer, Artistic Director of Overtone Industries); Client Since 2010


    “My favorite publicist of all time! “Publicist”? Perhaps facilitator is a better term. Lynn Tejada has long been one of my most invaluable and trusted sources, for the unerringly good taste and true vision she’s shown in the choice of artists and events she promotes. She was and is a crucial supporter of the most progressive electronic music on the planet, and was a pivotal figure in its early promotion in L.A. But that’s really just a tiny bit of it; whether it’s a film or dance or theater event –– or a farflung hybrid of all these –– Lynn has the finest instincts in the biz, for the most worthy, relevant and forward-looking. And: In a biz filled with crass, pushy, bs-spewing hypsters, Lynn Tejada stands miraculously out as a real, live HUMAN BEING who genuinely loves and believes in what she does. (I like her, in other words.)”
    John Payne, writer/editor, former LA Weekly Music Critic


    “I first came to know Lynn in the early ’90s when we were both tenants of the now famed Taft Building at Hollywood and Vine. Like our URB team, Lynn was carving out a place in the evolution of electronic music long before the pyrotechnics and fame of today. Her commitment to high quality sounds, events and artists assured her success these past two decades. Her company, Green Galactic, has always looked at the cultural importance of a project and not just what it meant to its bottom line. And it can’t go without mention, Lynn’s presence as an influential woman in a scene sometimes overshadowed by its testosterone, she remains an example for others, of all genders, to follow. Here’s to her continued success in Los Angeles and beyond.”
    – Raymond Leon Roker, Co-founder, URB Magazine


    “It takes a lot to be a genuinely beloved publicist in Los Angeles. But in a city where that profession is often associated with red-carpets, rolling calls, pushy pitches, and contrived celebrity, Green Galactic founder Lynn Tejada (née Hasty) has turned that type on its head. On the eve of celebrating 20 years in business as a full-service public-awareness support system for independent creatives in a nearly universal (dare I say, galactic!) range of genres, media, and platforms, Green Galactic has carved a place for itself at the forefront of indie culture in Los Angeles. And their chief weapon? Genuine, infectious enthusiasm…” (read more here)
