Today, you’ll notice we’ve updated our Instagram name to @PickUp____. If you’ve been following us on Instagram a while, you’ll be familiar with the diversity of styles and artists we feature. While we have updated our name to better reflect our musical diversity, our vision has remained the same — take you closer to the music, by cultivating a space where musicianship is celebrated.
Our new name allows us to continue to feature Jazz, as well as other styles of music.
The core of what we do is featuring upcoming artists from our #pickupjazz hashtag. In 2018, we’ll continue these community features from this hashtag, and you’ll also see more original PickUp content, featuring many of your favorite artists.
This is an exciting time for us. We’re a small team, and this process will be an iterative one. We’ll continue to be open and honest with you about future updates because we want you to be a part of our journey.
To kick things off, we’ll be finishing up our “Best of 2017” features, and launching our “Top Artists to Watch in 2018” series. We’re also super excited to announce the launch of this blog, pick–up.com, which will serve as a hub for this series, and all our future long-form features. Want to learn more about our vision?
