GoldenPlec are delighted to announce IMRO as a partner for our PlecPicks 2023 series.
PlecPicks is our annual flagship series highlighting the best new Irish music to look out for in the year ahead.
Now in its 10th year of publication the ‘Ones To Watch’ style features series has built up a reputation as the most comprehensive and detailed series of its type in Ireland with a reputation for tipping artists such as Hozier, Dermot Kennedy, Soule, Denise Chaila, Joy Crookes, Fontaines D.C. and more besides ahead of their big break.
The series includes a month of features, published throughout February, focussing on up-and-coming Irish musicians. The 2023 series features singer-songwriter Nell Mescal, post-punk outfit Gurriers, Kilkenny dance duo 49th & Main and many more Irish acts on the cusp of international success.
Speaking on the announcement GoldenPlec Editors Stephen Byrne and Ros Madigan stated:
“Over the course of the last 10 years we have worked tirelessly to build Plec Picks into Ireland’s premier new music feature series. We are excited to partner with IMRO on this project because it will enable us to introduce Irish artists to more people than ever before.
The Irish music scene has been decimated by the pandemic and now, more than ever it is important to support Irish music and the Irish music industry both at home and abroad. This partnership will allow GoldenPlec to continue to showcase the amazing talent of Irish artists across all genres.”
Breffni Banks, Marketing & Membership Manager IMRO added: “Since the beginning, PlecPicks has played a vital role in championing Irish music – providing an invaluable support platform for the tipped acts and the wider industry as a whole. IMRO is delighted to continue its partnership with the initiative in the coming year and look forward to the success that is destined to come for these artists throughout 2023 and beyond.”
The 2023 Plec Picks series will feature in-depth interviews with the chosen artists in tandem with a professional photoshoot created by GoldenPlec’s outstanding photography team; tailored to suit the unique visual style of each artist.
