Earlier this week, the first set of artists to benefit from the 2018 PledgeMusic and PRS Foundation Emerging Artists Fund was announced. The eight diverse acts have displayed the talent, a burgeoning fan base and the ‘DIY’ drive to build a long-term career. We can’t wait for the launch of their PledgeMusic campaigns and to see what they do with the support that the fund provides. In anticipation, check out some of their previous releases by following the links below.
