5 ARTISTS I’M EXCITED ABOUT!


BRITTANY HOWARD 

Not only does this beat bump, but Brittany is dropping some serious knowledge on her experience as a bi-racial woman. I played this cut on Sunday’s KCRW show and almost lost my mind on the drums. Brittany is seriously pushing new ground outside of Alabama Shakes and I dig it.

 

DANIELA ANDRADE 

Timing is everything. Give Daniela some time. I’m a fan of her sound and especially this video for Genesis. This Canadian singer/songwriter is creating her own lane utilizing Youtube and various other platforms as her creative outlet.

 

CASHMERE CAT

This new album is really hard to put into a box. One of the reasons why I appreciate it.

 

FINNEAS 

New release from Finneas. Thought this was some newcomer, did my research, and wow. Heavyweight! Lol. Still slaps tho!

 

ANNA WISE 

Another heavyweight who should be on your radar. You have sung her hooks on classics but when she records on her solo material, she pushes boundaries with vocal loops, panning and just sonic goods.
