Music Unites

Music Unites

Last week, PRS took a pause from social media and content to take the time to have conversations and to listen. In speaking with each other and with a number of our artist community, the power of music to bring us together has never been more apparent. As instrument makers, our job is to provide tools for musicians to do their job, voice their truth, and share their art. While we understand music is not the answer, we are grateful that it helps so many to express feelings of protest, joy, anger, sadness, and love. Music has a special way of allowing a voice to be heard that otherwise would not.
