Pirate Studios are back with ‘Pirate Prodigies’, the 2019 version providing more opportunity than ever…The aim remains the same; to find and nurture new British talent, this time across three categories: Band, DJ and MC/vocalist.
An expert panel of industry mentors and judges will support, develop and promote the careers of the three winners. Across the programme, artists will receive one-to-one mentoring and masterclasses that cover every aspect needed to help launch a career from management to publishing, A&R to radio-play, song-writing to PR. The lot. Pirate Studios will supplement this with unlimited free use of their “impressive and innovative rehearsal facilities” (Clash Magazine), personalised artist merchandise and consultations with premiere music service YouTube Music, as well as promotion across Pirate Studios’ extensive and growing social media channels. The winners will also secure festival slots on all stages Pirate Studio are involved with in 2019 including Isle of Wight Festival, Truck, Kendal Calling, Boomtown and Liverpool Sound City.
In short, these artists will be given everything they need to take their career to the next level.
And it works…just ask Red Rum Club, who won last year’s first ever PP. Since winning the band have played several major festivals, been played on Radio X, Radio 1, secured a record deal, sold out every gig they’ve played this year, been taken on by Courteeners and Biffy Clyro as a priority new act and seen their debut album crash the top 50. The band attribute a lot of this success to the support they’ve received from Pirate Studios…
“We’ve got a lot to thank Pirate Studios for, we’ve played some of the biggest festivals in the UK, we’ve signed a record deal, the opportunities and avenues that have opened for us because of winning have been amazing – the Pirate Prodigy has played a big part in what’s happening for our band and we’ve got nothing but good things to say and a big thank you”
