Eska awarded funding from the BPI's Music Export Growth Scheme
Now in its second year, the Music Export Growth Scheme (MEGS) provides funding to boost sales of British music around the world by financially supporting small and medium sized independent music companies in their overseas activities.
On finding out that her application had been successful, Eska commented:
"I am very thankful for the support of UKTI and BPI which will enable the promotion of my album and open opportunities to tour in Europe.
"The critical acclaim garnered by my debut album and live performances in the UK has already been generating interest internationally and without this vital and timely support, it would not be possible to pursue any of these exciting performance opportunities."
The announcement follows news that British artists now account for one in seven of all artist albums sold around the world, signalling the most successful year on record for British music overseas.
