Introducing the Class of 2022 Pulse Artists
Posted Sep 15, 2021

We launched Pulse with an initial group of eighty-four artists who represent a diverse range of playing styles around the globe.

2021 PULSE GRADUATES
We’d also like to recognize once again the four very first Pulse artists to graduate to the “official” PRS artist roster. These musicians have exhibited the skills and qualities that we look for when extending an official artist endorsement and we’re excited to continue working with them at this next level.
Left to Right - Daniel Fonseca, Sophia Gripari, Jimena Fosado, and German Gallardo.
