Momentum Music Fund

I’m pretty sure there’s a new batch of Momentum Music Fund grants announced every other week, but I’m assured it’s a quarterly thing. No sense of the passing of time, me.

Anyway, here is the latest list of music making types receiving funding from Momentum, the much previously reported Arts Council-funded and PRS For Music Foundation-run grants scheme for artists looking to take their careers to the next level. Boom…

Chelou – to fund recording, touring and marketing
Cosmo Sheldrake – to fund debut album recording and marketing
Folly Rae – to fund EP recording, release and campaign
Gengahr – to fund touring
Hawk Eyes – to fund recording, tour and marketing
IV ROX – to fund recording, tour and marketing
Koreless – to fund album recording and tour
Mary Epworth – to fund album recording, tour and marketing
Oceaán – to fund touring and marketing
Oh Wonder – to fund album release and campaign
Phoria – to fund album recording and campaign
Sincere – to fund EP campaign and tour
The Square – to fund album recording, tour and marketing

And if you were expecting a quote from Arts Council England Chair Peter Bazalgette at the end of all this, then you are going to be disappointed. Though only if you don’t like being right. Because yes, here he is. His great, great granddad made magnificent sewers don’t you know.

Says the ACE top bloke: “Well done to all the successful artists in this latest round, another investment in the next generation of talent. The Momentum Music Fund provides much-needed funding for emerging talent ready to make the next step in their career, and makes a real difference to those involved. It’s encouraging to see applications being made by such a wide range of artists”.

Artist seeking funding for future projects have until 2 Jun to apply for the next batch of Momentum grants. Info here.
