Meet the latest musicians supported to bring their music plans to life
Introducing February’s newly supported artists as they begin the next step in their careers
Support to tour, release new music and develop skills
Meet the 42 musicians we’re supporting from February 2023 to record and release new music, perform to live audiences and develop skills to enhance their practice, confidence and professional networks.
With today’s musicians facing complex challenges, from the ongoing effects of the pandemic, to difficulties around touring, support that helps build and sustain careers is more important than ever.
From live performances in the US to releasing debut albums
Thirteen artists are being supported to tour or perform live, including the band caroline. The group are currently preparing for a US festival appearance and headline events in the UK, and will also use the financial support to film a live video session.
Band-leader Noga Ritter will be using our record and release support to finish her debut album before launching it in May with a concert. Noga said that the support did not only help financially but feeling recognised and supported “gave me the last push of energy I needed to work hard to release the album.”
Support to elevate your music through learning and training
Our skills and development support offers musicians the chance to access a range of training bespoke to their needs. This month ten musicians will be using this to fund a range of learning opportunities, including work with a vocal coach, mixing lessons with a sound engineer and an educational trip to Transylvania to learn traditional folk music.
For Edinburgh musician Joshua Grant, this support means he can working with producer Al Groves to create his first EP.
