We’re excited to launch the sixth round of the PickUp Music Emerging Artist Fund supported by D’Angelico Guitars.
Congratulations to Lizzy McAlpine, the winner of last month’s fund!
A big part of what we do at Pickup Music is support emerging artists. We love discovering amazing new talent and supporting them to build a career in the music industry. With the support of D’Angelico Guitars, we’ve created the Pickup Music Emerging Artist Fund to give the chance for one new artist each month to perform at our live sessions and be featured across our pages.
Pickup Music annual members will vote on the best entry each month.
The winner will receive:
- An invitation to perform and film a song at our live session in Los Angeles
- $500 towards the travel costs to perform at the live session
- A D’Angelico Deluxe SS guitar valued at approximately $1999 USD
- Features on Pickup Music’s Instagram pages.
Note: we’ve made a change to the voting eligibility. Voting will only be open to Pickup Music annual members. We’ve made this change because we want to avoid sign-ups for a monthly membership just to vote in the competition. This isn’t good for community connection. So this is a way of making sure long term Pickup Music members get to choose who wins the round.
Here’s Lizzy’s performance at our LA Live Session:
