Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced the launch of the Player Plus Studio Sessions: Powered by Fender®.
Amidst lockdowns and social distancing, it’s no secret that artists have been struggling for both inspiration and support. Enter Fender. This global program seeks to fulfil the creative aspirations of independent artists around the world by getting them back in the studio and providing them with the tools they need to create their musical art.
To bring this program to life, Fender has partnered with notable recording studios in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Japan and Mexico to host Fender-funded studio sessions with engineers, a mixing credit, Player Plus gear and mentoring resources for winning artists.
Inspired by the recent launch of the Player Plus series, Fender’s new line of guitars and basses are designed with creators and independent artists in mind to be the tool that these artists use to bring their passions to a global stage. The Player Plus Studio Sessions aim to take that same goal a step further by purposefully supporting rising talent, helping them share their message and creativity through original music.
This new global program reinvigorates Fender’s ongoing commitment to musicians, and in particular, independent musicians.
