Fender has revealed details of its Player Plus Studio Sessions scheme, which it says will provide 260 hours of studio time in “world-class studios” for rising independent artists.

The brand is running the competition to promote the launch of its new Player Plus Series. Fender says it will fund 10 hours at a facility for each of the selected artists and describes the move as a “goodwill gesture aimed at getting artists out of the house and back in the rooms where the magic happens.”
