I don’t know if it’s just me but recently I’ve become super bored of listening to all the songs on my Spotify playlists over and over again, so I decided to branch out and to try and find some lesser-known young artists that I could add into the mix. Supporting young people trying to make it big in the music industry is super important and there are some really great singers out there that you might not know about (or you may have heard their song on TikTok but didn’t realise who sang it).
Here are 8 of my favourite new artists right now that definitely deserve your attention.
Maggie Rogers is a singer-songwriter from Maryland in America, who got her big break when she played her now hit song “Alaska” for Pharrell Williams at a music masterclass he hosted at NYU in 2016. Her unique vocal style, paired with her super cool and relaxing melodies make her a great singer to listen to when you just want to chill out and take a break from everything.

Beabadoobee (aka Beatrice Laus)
You’ll definitely recognise her song “Coffee” if you spend a lot of time on TikTok but the talented young singer has lots of other great songs, like “The Moon Song” and “If You Want To”. She even got to support The 1975 on their “Music For Cars” tour.

You may know Eddie as being Maddie Ziegler’s boyfriend but he’s actually a really talented young artist. Although he only has one song out, he has a lot more to come and has even received praise from Justin Bieber.

Charlotte is one of my favourite artists at the moment and she definitely doesn’t get the attention she deserves. She has amazing songs like “Why Do You Love Me”, “Navy Blue”, and “Stole Your Car”. This year she even had a song on the Birds Of Prey soundtrack called “Jokes On You”.

Kelsy Karter got lots of attention when she faked a Harry Styles face tattoo (yes, you read that right) to promote her single “Harry”. Since then, she’s realised loads of really great sings that you definitely should give a listen.

Molly Kate Kestner
Molly is an amazing singer who released one of my favourite songs ever “Prom Queen”. She’s only 24 but has been signed to Atlantic Records since 2014 which means she was only 18 when she got signed.

MICHELLE is an incredible band that consists of 2 boys and 4 girls, Sofia D’Angelo, Julian Kaufman, Charlie Kilgore, Layla Ku, Emma Lee and Jamee Lockard, from New York. Their sound is super cool and unique, and they have a solid collection of music.
