5 ARTISTS I’M EXCITED ABOUT!


So a bit more time on my hands these days. This gives me more time to search deeper and harder for my weekend radio show. Instead of relying on on the same music that gets serviced to myself and the million of radio dj’s, I take great pride in digging in record bins, blogs and folks creating master pieces at home. Behold, 5 artists I came across the truly move me and hopefully move you!

 

BAKAR 

Fresh out of London with a unique voice. Hell N Back has been on rotation on my KCRW sets and he has received co-signs from Elton John and Skepta. Check out his debut release BadKid when you get a chance!

 

KATE BOLLINGER 

I just picked up this Charlottesville singer/songwriter’s latest EP “I Dont Wanna Lose” and instantly fell in love with the lazy notes and chords sprinkled into this beautiful project. Another gem in rotation during my KCRW sets. Check out her soundcloud when you get a chance.

 

HOPE TALA 

Looking forward to linking with this London singer/songwriter while she is in LA. Her latest EP titled Sensitive Soul moves me every time. I can think of the last time a new artist has sent chills down my spine with such meaningful harmonies.

 

FARR

Heard this cut in my yoga class and can not get enough of FARR. This lovely cover does justice to its cover of La Roux’s classic. More gems courtesy of FARR’s soundcloud.

 

STEVAN 

While browsing through my emails and music submissions, this gem stood out. TIMEE has the guitar swag of Mac Demarco or Steve Lacey with 90’s drum samples and trap vocal samples. Not an easy task to pull off. Stevan hails from Wollongong and at the age of 18 manages to pull off off songwriting/production on his own.
