PlecPicks, the annual flagship series from GoldenPlec highlights the best new Irish music to look out for in the year ahead.
Now in its 8th 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 daily throughout January (Mon-Fri), focussing on up-and-coming Irish musicians. The 2021 series has already begun with artists such as Tolu Makay, Yenkee, Gemma Dunleavy and Malaki kicking it all off.
Speaking on the announcement GoldenPlec Editors Stephen Byrne and Ros Madigan stated: “Over the course of the last 8 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.”
The 2021 Plec Picks series will feature in-depth interviews with the twenty 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.
In addition to this, GoldenPlec have added high quality video shoots in The Clinic Recording Studios, Dublin to the mix for 2021.
