PPL partners with PRS for Music Foundation to invest in new musical talent

Music licensing company PPL has pledged to invest £200,000 per year in UK talent via a new partnership agreement inked with PRS for Music Foundation.

PRS for Music Foundation is the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development across all genres.

The monies will support musicians that apply for funding through two of the Foundation’s flagship initiatives, the Momentum Music Fund and the International Showcase Fund.

Together, the Funds have supported the development of hundreds of artists including Slaves, Everything Everything, Kate Tempest, Glass Animals, Wolf Alice, Ghetts, East India Youth, Little Simz, Ghostpoet and Julia Biel.

This new partnership with PPL, combined with the contributions from all current partners, will allow PRS for Music Foundation to invest over £1million per year in grants through the Momentum Music and International Showcase Funds.

“We are very excited to be partnering with PRS for Music Foundation to provide financial and career development support to new talent. The Foundation has played a pivotal role in the success story of many UK artists and we hope that, with additional significant investment and involvement from PPL, we can jointly fund more records, more tours, and more great music,” said PPL chief executive Peter Leathem.

“With the November deadlines fast-approaching for the Momentum Fund and SXSW showcases, we would encourage acts to submit their applications to benefit from financial support that could make a huge difference to their careers both in the UK and overseas.”
