The €3,000 (3 x €1,000) grant will provide the artists with resources to develop their artistic practice, as well as a comprehensive artist services and mentoring package from CD Baby. Each were selected by international industry delegates attending IMW 2020.

Every Ireland Music Week showcasing artist also received a CD Baby distribution package, including a Pro Publishing account option, free digital marketing tools and sync representation, as well as a 1:1 digital release strategy session with the CD Baby Europe team.

Despite the disappointment of not being able to return en masse to Dublin for this year’s event, we are delighted to continue our partnership of last year with Ireland Music Week, to shine a spotlight on the cream of new Irish music, and give these artists the global platform they deserve,” said Rich Orchard, Director of European Market Development at CD Baby. “We’ve had some outstanding success stories the past twelve months, so having been able to watch all 50 showcase performances this year, I couldn’t be more excited about this year’s crop of artists and the year ahead.”
