In Phoenix, event organizers will also showcase the first PPR 101 Compilation CD. A cooperative endeavor with DJ KSB, Volume one of the compilation will feature some of the best talent who have performed and/or participated in a previously held PPR 101 seminar/showcase. “For many independent artists, we act as their unofficial publicist, via PPR 101. Long after PPR 101 has left their city, we continue to advise many past participants on how to build on their existing momentum. Having music included on the compilation cd affords the artists music reviews by top entertainment journalists and exposure in additional markets, even when they aren’t present. PPR 101 is not just an event; it’s a relationship of results, explains ChiQ Simms, event organizer and celebrity publicist.”

Past PPR 101 showcase winners like Brittany Starr of Dallas, Texas have gone on to New York and Chicago earning a music video and opportunity to work with Twista. Starr took second place at New York’s premiere A&R talent scouting event Blaze the Stage and currently has several major labels bidding for her.
