After hearing the same artists on the radio hundreds of times, most of you would probably like to hear something different and new. So I have complied a short list of artists who’s craft should be shared even more with the world. The follow five artists I suggest you jump onto now before they become part of that radio artist list.
1. Ruth B
Three years ago, Ruth B posted a vine of her singing a melody she wrote based on the show, Once Upon a Time. After a massive positive feedback, she turned that melody into a song. She posted the song on YouTube, under the name Lost Boy. Soon after she received a record deal, a music video, and a charting topping single. Her musical style can be described as indie pop. Her next step, her debut album, Safe Haven comes out May 5th.
2. Jordan Fisher
Broadway, television even video games, Jordan Fisher is truly doing it all. Born and raised in Alabama, Jordan started his career to impress a girl. Since then, he’s starred in Disney’s Teen Beach Movie series, released an EP, and did a run in the Broadway hit, Hamilton. His musical style is R&B/soulful mix. His next step is to release his debut album this spring and tour the United States by the end of this year.
3. Sabrina Carpenter
Sabrina is more than the Disney darling that we met on the Emmy-nominated series, Girl Meets World. At just 17 years old, she’s released two albums, performed in musical theatre and sold out her first U.S. national tour. Her musical style could be defined as mellow pop. She’s said to be one of the next big ex-Disney music stars. Her next step is completing her Europe leg of her tour, support The Vamps on their tour and promote her first radio single, Thumbs.
4. Kevin Garrett
Pittsburgh born and Brooklyn based indie artist, Kevin Garrett is a name that should be heard around the world. Even if you haven’t heard him, you heard his writing as he co-wrote Pray You Catch Me from Beyonce’s Grammy-nominated album, Lemonade. His style is mellow and soulful. He’s opened for acts such as Alessia Cara and X Ambassadors. His first headlining tour had 17 sold out dates. The only way he can go at this point is up.
5. Chloe x Halle
Starting off their humble beginnings winning Disney’s Next Big Thing competition, Chloe and Halle Bailey have definitely risen over the years. After their viral cover of Pretty Hurts, Beyonce signed them to Parkwood Entertainment. They released their debut single on the label, Drop which received major critic approval as well as the public. They also appeared in several television programs include Beyonce’s Lemonade visual album. Their next step is promoting the mixtape, The Two of Us.
