PRS Guitars is pleased to announce they will begin accepting applications for the Class of 2023 Pulse Artist Program. In its third year, the PRS Pulse Artist Program continues to shine a light on leading regional artists from around the world through PRS’s existing dealer network.

PRS Pulse Artists are granted exclusive discounts on guitars, amps, and accessories through their local Authorized PRS Dealer. They will also receive an exclusive membership kit that includes PRS strings, picks, cables, and more! Additionally, these artists will be considered for exposure through editorial content on the PRS Guitars website and posts on its social platforms. The program’s goal is to promote these musicians and their art and help to connect more people through music. The Pulse Artist roster currently boasts more than 100 guitarists, representing a diverse range of playing styles and genres from sixteen countries.

All guitarists interested in becoming a 2023 PRS Pulse Artist must submit their application through any Authorized PRS Dealer or Distributor. Submissions for the 2023 class will be accepted from July 1 – August 15, 2022. All applications will be reviewed by the PRS Artist Relations team.

“We’re delighted to have developed this ongoing, global program that helps support influential regional players while also helping fans and musicians discover each other. The Class of 2022 Pulse Artists have been busy at work, releasing numerous albums, EP’s and Singles, interviewing with magazines, livestreaming performances and even collaborating with a few Official PRS artists,” said Bev Fowler, Director of Artist Relations. “We look forward to connecting with potential new Pulse Artists and seeing the program continue to help amplify these musicians.”
