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!
