On receiving her Momentum funding, Andreya Triana said:
"It has come at a crucial time and the funds from the award are going to make a huge difference. In an industry where you have to work incredibly hard and at times make your own luck the Momentum Music Fund has played a pivotal role in supporting my creativity and career." 

Lonely the Brave said:
"All we've ever wanted to do is tour the songs, and get our music out there to people, and with this help we finally feel able to. With so many other talented acts applying, it means all the more that we have been chosen."
