ABOUT THE SWISHER SWEETS ARTIST PROJECT
The Swisher Sweets Artist Project was created to help artists pursue their creative passion by providing resources to help promote and support their careers. Over the past 60 years, Swisher Sweets has become unintentionally ingrained into music culture. Each artist who has mentioned Swisher Sweets in their song lyrics – more than 2,500 songs and counting – has helped make the brand what it is today. Now in its sixth year, the Artist Project has worked with more than 100 artists across several music genres. This year’s Swisher Sweets Artist Project Class of 2020 includes some the hottest new acts in music. Artist Project grants have been awarded; performance opportunities have been provided to artists in cities across the country; and thousands of hours of content have been curated – all with a spotlight on the creative community.
