AudioActive’s artist development programme.


Emerge is AudioActive’s artist development programme.

The programme is artist-led and aims to help young musicians from all backgrounds enter an industry that is often skewed against them. Successful applicants have the chance to work closely with AudioActive staff, along with a budget to be spent how they see fit. 


Funded by PRS Foundation, between £4000 and £10,000 has been made available for each of our successful applicants so far, helping them to create merchandise, produce music videos, further their musical skillset and whatever else they saw fit to further their careers.

For 2021/22, we are delighted to be supporting Kaisha and Nadav Schneerson at a turning point in their music careers. Previous artists to be part of the Emerge programme include dereck d.a.c. and Casper the Ghost.
