Now that 2019 is just around the corner, it’s high time to share our list of artists to watch! These are up-and-coming artists of various levels. However, they’re ones we really believe are going to make a splash in the music industry.

First of all, let’s have a look at what up and coming artists have been tipped by the likes of VEVO, YouTube, BBC, Ticketmaster, MTV, Amazing Radio:

Grace Carter, Dermot Kennedy, Easy Life, Slowthai, Jade Bird, Mahalia, Octavian, Sam Fender, SLANG, The Modern Strangers. We’ve actually been listening to quite a few of these artists in the office so we’re very happy to see them make these lists!
