In an era where radio is broadcast 24 hours and platforms such as YouTube and Spotify give us access to whichever tunes we like whenever we want them, we really are spoilt for choice - there's so much music out there, how do we know which new stuff is worth listening to?
Fear not. Today, we've got you covered. Here's a list of 5 artists we've recently added to our visual radio player - which you can check out here - who we think have the potential to be the soundtrack to your 2022 summer, set to be drenched in sunshine and good times, fingers crossed!
What a tune this is - gave us serious Ellie Goulding-vibes, which is definitely a compliment! Abby is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee, who has supported music heavyweights on tour including The Beach Boys and Switchfoot! Her music rests on the foundation of her unshakeable faith in God, and her enjoyable brand of music will keep you coming back for more.
This next track comes from Marqus (pronounced 'Marcus') Anthony, a Christian hip-hop artist from Detroit who's been spitting bars since 2013, having never touched a mic before this! Marqus describes himself as 'a man of God first and an artist second'. who wholeheartedly devotes his music back to the One who blessed him with the gift. If you're into hip-hop/RnB, you'll love this!
JSteph is another artist we've recently added to the Visual Radio Player, and for good reason! The above track 'Something Better' features a video which tells its story so brilliantly, and the song itself is really listenable - it has James Arthur-vibes - again, a huge compliment! The perfect accompaniment to a chilled summer's day in the sun!
Remedy Drive's vibe is not like anything else on this list, but is perfect for those days where you want to get in the zone with a bit of rock music! Like Abby Robertson they're based in Nashville, and have been making music in one for or another since 1998. We absolutely love their style, and we're sure you will too.
Think you recognise this track? Perhaps you do, listen below...
That's right, the final artist on this list was recently on The Voice UK! Benjamin Haycock was described by Will.i.am as 'the real deal' and by Sir Tom Jones as 'taking it to another level'...so who are we to argue? His vocal is like nothing else you'll have heard before, and his incredible track 'Restlessness' (linked above), a tribute to his late father, is both incredibly moving and in our opinion a masterpiece. We're hoping to speak more with Ben in the coming months (he's a friend of a friend) so keep an eye on our socials for that content!
