Spotify partners with Gold House for 'Futures' program to support API creatives

Gold House has launched a new endeavor to help bring success to rising Asian & Pacific Islander (API) creatives, entrepreneurs, and social impact leaders.

Through Gold House Futures, the non-profit collective and its prominent partners will be investing in the sharpest, most colorful, and extremely dedicated minds in the Asian & Pacific Islander community. The new initiative marks as a door-opener for many as it aims to elevate the futures of API individuals with funding and its world-class mentoring programs in film, music, fine art, entrepreneurship, and social impact.

Spotify has partnered with Gold House for one of its five Futures categories (or "Guilds") to spotlight API talent by offering three musicians the opportunity to record Spotify Singles, a series of original recordings in its in-house studios. Their material will then be released for streaming.

Awardees will be selected by music industry leaders Ronny Ho (Spotify), Puja Patel (Pitchfork), Eric Wong (Warner Music Group), Annie Lee (Universal Music Group), and Far East Movement, and receive support, amplifications, and programming.

Applications for The Music Guild are open now and the inaugural class will be revealed in early 2022.
