The Josh Pyke Partnership returns for 2016!

The Josh Pyke Partnership, established by the artist himself and APRA, returns in 2016, offering one lucky musician an impressive $7500 grant to help kick-start their career! The winning artist, in addition to taking out the cash prize, will also receive invaluable mentorship from Pyke and a meeting with Gregg Donovan (Wonderlick Entertainment) and Stephen Wade (Select Music), both opportunities for the winner to further establish networks and relationships in the industry from early on in a burgeoning career.

Last year, Sydney’s Gordi was named the recipient of the prize and since then, she’s become a name more and more people have switched on to. Says Pyke of the return of the Partnership in 2016:

“Bringing back the JP Partnership for the third year is really exciting… There’s so much great music being made and it’s always a challenging thing when you’re starting out, so it’s great to know that with APRA’s help we are making a small difference.”

To be able to be in the running for the JP Partnership this year, applicants must not be signed to a recording or publishing company and must be able to submit a business plan outlining how the $7500 grant would be put to use.
