Playlist: Momentum Music Fund 


These songs are made up of artists who have benefited from the latest round of funding from The Momentum Music fund, which is managed by the PRS for Music Foundation. The fund gives grants between £5,000 and £15,000 to help emerging artists reach the next stage of their career.

Spotify is the exclusive digital partner of Momentum and the playlist was featured as one of their top playlist picks.

The Momemtum Music Fund, an Arts Council England initiative managed by PRS for Music Foundation, has invested more than £500,000 into artist development, having supported 68 bands and artists in its first two years.

Since it launched, Momentum has helped fund 46 albums and more than 50 UK tours, alongside a range of creative and promotional activities. In total, more than 1,600 applications have been received for the fund, with 632 being considered by revolving panels of industry experts. The unprecedented demand and an increasingly high standard of application was recognised by Arts Council England and PRS for Music, both of whom doubled their investment for 2015-16.
