Momentum Music Fund

Your good friends over at the PRS For Music Foundation last week announced another round of momentum-giving goodness in the form of the latest grants from the Arts Council England-backed and Spotify-supported Momentum Music Fund.

Who are those artists whose momentum is set to increase in the coming months? Well, Babeheaven, Beaty Heart, Dapz On The Map, Jay Prince, Robyn Sherwell, Salute and The The Youth are all getting financial support for upcoming touring activity, Daniel Woolhouse, Frank Carter And The Rattle Snakes, Luke Sital Singh and Manu Delago are getting some cash towards recording projects, while Mic Righteous, Joel Culpepper and Laurel are going to spend their momentum monies on some marketing.

Says PRS For Music Foundation’s Vanessa Reed: “As we approach our third anniversary of running the Momentum Music Fund in partnership with Arts Council England, and more recently in association with Spotify, it’s clear from the number and strength of the applications we receive that talented artists from across a broad range of genres need support to push their career to the next level. Huge congratulations to all of the artists supported in this latest round, I look forward to seeing the impact this funding has on their next steps and the number of fans they can reach as a result”.

On top of the latest grant awards, the Foundation also announced that it will be presenting a Momentum Music Fund showcase at The Great Escape in May featuring four artists supported by the funding scheme. More info on that very soon.
