5 artists that are ones to watch in 2017

As we get into the swing of things in 2017, there’s one thing to remember; new year, new music. And while it’s certain that many of our big stars will deliver this year, there are some new musicians on the scene that are ones to watch. I’ve done the dirty work for you and picked out some that you absolutely need to check out throughout the next 12 months.

Hey Violet

Regular readers of my blog (in particular my monthly favourites) will know I have been a fan for a fair while of this band. The alternative pop rock band consisting of Rena Lovelis (lead vocals), Casey Moreta (lead guitar), Nia Lovelis (drums) Miranda Miller (rhythm guitar, keyboards) and newest member, Iain Shipp (bass guitar) saw a rise in popularity in 2016 and are soon to release their debut album in spring of this year. The young LA based band are a breath of fresh air and influencing the youth of today – in particular females – to pick up an instrument and bring back the old skool way of making music but with a slight modern twist, making it the best of both worlds of the classic music making and what’s on the Top 40 charts. Their latest single, ‘Guys My Age’, was a beat-heavy electropop track which seems to tease to their fanbase what the possibilities of their first record could have an inkling of sounding like.

Evaride

British-American trio, Evaride, consists of One Direction’s drummer, Josh Devine, Hayden Maringer or Maringer music/guitarist for Camryn & DAYA  and Sean Michael Murray of Static Stereo, the new pop rock band of 2017. The lads rang in the new year with a snippet of what’s to come from their debut track ‘Heartless’.  The band are already proving to be popular, accumulating over 10k followers on Twitter and just over 3,500 over on Instagram. Given the sounds of each member’s musical background, I have high confidence in Evaride becoming a rising artist this year.

My Bucket List

Throughout my teenhood, I’ve made many attempts to create a bucket list. But there’s something that I never really took into consideration – what goes on my bucket list should be something I actually really want to do that I want to remember for the rest of my life – not something that sounds cool and impressive.

After reading this post by Mali-Koa Hood, I decided that now I’m so close to entering my third decade and have matured since my last attempt, that I should write a bucket list. One that I can stick to with goals I actually want to achieve. Note that this is not in any particular order of what I want to do most or first.
