Martha Bryce

Martha Bryce started her career working with small, family run food producers before moving onto work at the press office at Edinburgh & Lothians Tourist Board. 

 After transferring to VisitScotland, she managed the PR for Southern Europe and then food and drink PR with UK-wide media.  Since setting up on her own, Martha has worked with a huge variety of food producers, hotels, festivals, heritage and arts organisations. 

With a dual passion for the food and tourism industries, she’s worked to promote businesses of all sizes with a range of practical tips and a particular knowledge of the UK’s lifestyle media. Martha also coordinates regional food group, Food from Fife.

Jessica Sneddon

Jessica’s love of the hospitality industry began at Edinburgh’s prestigious five star Rocco Forte hotel, The Balmoral, where she was PR and Marketing Manager (and where she met her chef husband and Martha for the first time!)

She went on to work with some of the UK’s leading food & drink and hospitality agencies managing clients across the spectrum from big consumer brands like Mars to foodservice businesses like Nisbets to Michelin starred restaurants and burger chains.

Jessica has an in-depth knowledge of the restaurant industry, helping to co-ordinate the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts in Scotland, as well as being on BBC Good Food Magazine’s trends panel.


“Sound Bite PR were instrumental in the pre-opening of The Little Chartroom and really helped us hit the ground running. Since then we have been delighted with the amount of coverage we have received both locally and nationally. We are under no illusions that the success of The Little Chartroom is as much to do with team at Sound Bite as it is to do with our own team here in the restaurant.”
