PRS for Music has announced the recipients of its flash funding programme, which earlier this month gave musicians the chance to apply for funding to support upcoming tours.

The four artists/groups chosen to receive the funding package – which includes a bespoke monitoring package worth up to £10k and promotional support – are April Towers, False Advertising, Flight Brigade and John Joseph Brill.

Joseph Frankland, senior grants and programmes manager for the PRS for Music Foundation said, “Congratulations to the four successful artists receiving this latest version of flash funding. 

“We received close to 100 applications in 72 hours, which is an incredible response and highlights there is a real need for this type of support for emerging artists in the live sector. I look forward to seeing how this support will transform the live shows of April Towers, False Advertising, Flight Brigade and John Joseph Brill, and make a real impact on their careers.”
