Artist Uprising is run by two entrepreneurial women - Merrick Porchéddu & Angela Ross. While working with talent across many divisions of the arts & entertainment industry, Artist Uprising's reach spans to New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Miami, Europe, South America, and the South Pacific islands.
As a “talent resource for businesses,” we have curated artists & entertainers for companies like Nike, Stella Artois, Visit Dallas, ABC, MTV, and Forever Living™ Products... just to name a few.
As a “business resource for talent,” we are currently aiding in the careers of visual artists, performing artists, broadcast entertainers, filmmakers, designers and more, a few whose names include: ABC's The Bachelorette: Rachel Lindsay; Performing Artist: Daniella Mason who has opened for artists like Nick Jonas, Demi Lavato and DNCE; and Jeremy McKane, world renowned videographer and inventor of LUCiD, an experiential installation currently circulating the United Nations on behalf of the G7 Summit and the German Ministry.
We initiated our company publicly with the release of an annual curatorial featuring "Top 25 Most Influential Creatives of Dallas/Fort Worth.” The publication sold out only 5 days after it's debut in 2017 and was distributed in 30 locations in Dallas including the Dallas Museum of Art as well as being placed in every room of The Joule Hotel.
Within the first year, Artist Uprising was voted "#1 Hottest Startup In Dallas."
We recently acquired a new company, Pulley Project! Get the full scoop here.
