This year PRS celebrates the third anniversary of the S2 Series! As part of our celebration, we partnered with our friends at Sonicbids to host a competition. Sonicbids provides a suite of tools and resources that help artists present themselves professionally and connect with promoters, venue owners, and great music opportunities all over the world. Sonicbids has a network of opportunities featuring 20,000+ promoters and booking agents who all use Sonicbids to connect, network, review and book artists for events and other opportunities. Also, Sonicbids serves as the exclusive online musical event application platform for SXSW!
The PRS artist relations team searched through hundreds of Sonicbids applicants in search of the top emerging talent nationwide! The bands that entered our competition were given a ranking based on musicality, creativity, and performance.
Many entered but only 5 won, take a look at the winning bands below and check back for a larger feature on these bands on the PRS website in the future!
