New Music: Rising Artists who will explode

The boatload of music makes it a challenge to learn about the big acts, so we’re running down the up-and-coming singers who represent the music trends so that when festivals begin releasing their lineups you can expect these most anticipated acts. Before we find out the 2019 top, we spoke to some experts about the year ahead, and came up with some predictions according to a number of artists, DJs and journalists. The game is still accelerating thanks to the voracious audiences and hip-hop’s DNA is mutating as there is a plethora of names and the path from anonymity is now much simpler.

These are the new artists of music flooding the airwaves, special catalysts of the musical landscape we believe have gone viral, although some of them took a traditional path, from trap to techno. We think female-made music will become more inclusive, as a status quo, as it will be a more creative playing field with a lot of novelty, and women will be reviewed and respected more as artists. These days, folk is difficult as the list consists of veterans as well as newcomers, although it seems the new faces are paving their own path, at least by today’s standards, so as we look ahead, newcomers to folk and bluegrass are bending the definition of traditional folk.

Chart success for underground will become more common with albums and big projects from the likes of Aitch and there’s also a surge which is taking the sting out of the stereotypes, while albums will get longer. In case you would like to know who will be 2019’s breakout, you ought to know that we’ve been analyzing industry data and selected the rappers and bands poised for greatness, so whether you’re into R&B, K-pop or Latin, here are our artists to watch for. One of the most important things has been the number of Spanish-language entries, so the Latin music is concerned that “urban” music racks up stream counts and will no longer be seen as profitable, abandoned by the mainstream.

1. Courtney Hadwin
Born in 2004, she is best known for the thirteenth season of the competition America’s Got Talent.

2. Kodie Shane
The 19-year-old’s exposure to the industry made her serious about her natural talent for cadence, coupled with her ability to write candy-sweet rap and more emotional songs, setting her apart from the new rappers, and it’s all well earned.

3. Normani
Born in Atlanta, her duet with Khalid topped the Billboard Top chart.

4. Cuban Doll
With her debut Aaliyah Keef, the 19-year-old urges you to just take a listen with her crazy social media following.

5. Allison de Groot and Tatiana Hargreaves
De Groot is one of the best banjoists, and Hargreaves toured with Gillian Welch, which is why together, they’ll officially be in a partnership with their debut of reckless sounds of Appalachian music that emphasizes this can’t-miss pair.

6. Parker McCollum
McCollum isn’t afraid to venture into the perception of love-hate affair with a series of EPs.

Uffie’s Musical and Producing Career

After a divisive debut album, earlier this year, the would-be pop star, a precursor to the hip-pop of the 2010s, gained a self-assertive understanding of how to rack up festival appearances at London’s Lovebox, following her occasionally vital album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans. Anna-Catherine Hartley, known as Uffie, is an American songwriter and DJ formerly signed to a music record label, which incorporates acid house electro and nu skool, perhaps best known for “Pop the Glock”, her 2007 collaboration with Justice. Born on 9 December 1987 in Miami, Florida, Uffie is an American/French electro artist signed by Ed Banger Records, raised in Hong Kong and her career took off when she released Pop the Glock and Ready To Uff, while her long-awaited album was released through Because Music on June 15, 2010.

In 2010, her debut album was included on year-end lists and nominated for Best Electronic Album, followed by a hiatus and her EP Tokyo Love Hotel. After the release of Pop The Glock and Ready To Uff, Hot Chick was released, as well as Dismissed, on Ed Rec Vol 2, but then in 2007, First Love and Brand New Car, were released as an EP. “Drugs,” premiered in 2018, and shortly after she dropped “Sad Money”, and her synth-pop combined with rap-like vocals derive from living on a boat until the age of eight, as she resorted to the music of Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd, before she fell in love with hip-hop and the slow beats. The musical artist and producer Uffie made her return after her last release, in 2019, but Myspace is where the French-American producer got her start, though she had previously released Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, as it wasn’t until 2011 when her single spread on Myspace that she started to gain traction.

Uffie was born in Miami to a Japanese mother and she moved to Hong Kong at the age of four, and Uffie is a nickname which comes from the word “œuf”, but she recalls that it started as her parents were saying ‘Enough!’ which is actually un œuf, so by the time her memory begins she was called Uffie. When she was 13, she enrolled at an international school and went on to study at the private school of Esmod, and while Uffie’s years as a musician were a little on the wild side, she matured as an artist in those formative years, changing the focus when she made her return to Los Angeles. Since 2006, there were many delays taking four years, and she states that the main delays included traveling schedules, and her divorce to a successful graffiti artist, as well as her pregnancy leaded to a brief hiatus to grow as an artist.

Two months ago, Uffie reactivated her Facebook page and went back to the studio to continue for the 200,000 fans while living in Seattle, ready to record after her divorce, by going to a showcase by Blanco’s label, where she met Ammar Malik.

Hey, so far it’s been a year inundated with albums, so let’s bathe our eyeballs and perhaps inject our ear holes because the good times surely can’t last for long, especially if you’re after electronic, punk, indie stuff or veteran ska. Our countdown goes to a timely blast of albums that range from the political to pure slices of rock and rap.

1. Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons is a pop rock band from Nevada, which first gained exposure with their single “It’s Time”, and the studio album Night Visions, but after the Evolve Tour was completed, they released Origins in 2018 and won three American Music Awards, one Grammy, one MTV Music Award has sold 12 million albums worldwide.

2. American Football
The impossible trick is that they slowed down, but prettier melodies don’t make these songs less gutting than “Never Meant” and LP3 is not above new tricks, as they invite textures while opening up possibilities.

3. The National
I Am Easy To Find will be accompanied with a music video.

4. The Twilight Sad
The Twilight Sad have spoken of their fifth album, recorded after the death of Scott Hutchison, on grief and the redemptive power of music, but rather than being owned by demons, it’s an 11-track exorcism, a full-bodied mood-piece in the fight to feel grateful.

5. Backstreet Boys
The new album will highlight their influences for 25 years with a lead single, a romantic anthem and an acoustic track nailing thus a tricky act of sounding like today’s climate, earning their first Adult Top 10 hit in 17 years.

6. Jonas Brothers
You’ll feel totally powerless in the face of this nostalgic appeal and catchy swagger, as “Sucker” definitely gets to us.

7. Arctic Monkeys
The guitarist slots into the new with these songs.

The Life of a Singer and Songwriter – Becoming Professional

If you want to learn how to get paid from singing, you ought to know that you don’t need to be the best, as being a professional singer, the business side of things can be more important, as well as agents and the way you sing. Every artist is unique but in order to be successful there are smart ways to go, which is why we are encouraging you to work with artists and industry experts in case you want it to be a whole lot easier. Once you reach a standard, business skills are the ones which pay the bills, so be sure that when you stand in front of an agent, he will hear something your family and the audience doesn’t and he will surely figure out if you’re just a talented amateur.

Find your inspiration by checking out your surroundings, in order to find a subject, whether it’s set to a ballad or a dance song, by finding out what really speaks to you, and listen to other genres of music, while maintaining your originality. The rigors of singing many days are different from singing a at a showcase, so start training properly with professional singing lessons in order to be confident and have a perfect technique that will allow you to sing 7 nights a week without straining to reach notes. Unfortunately, there’s a wrong way to have a set of goals, if you go aiming for pie in the sky dreams so here’s an example of a good goal: release an album by 2020 (doable and quantifiable, it defines when you want it done).

Work on your beliefs as this will truly affect your results, and question what is true, especially when it comes to making it in the music industry, because if you’re influenced by the naysayers, it will not be good for you. Becoming a songwriter means that you get to work a job that’s fulfilling, meet different people and get to impact the world, without needing a lot of money, because learning how to become one is learning through tons of resources. We’ve come to believe that by setting expectations it becomes harder to be discouraged, so we thought we’d address some misconceptions about songwriters that might discourage us, because the more educated one is, the better prepared you’ll be.

If you want to know what it takes to write your own tunes and be a singer-songwriter, you’ve probably always wanted to start your songwriting career by writing lyrics and singing your favorite songs. The key to reaching your goals is to get clear on you set of goals, just like having a business plan so that you don’t go wasting a lot of money and have more clarity. The US is great if you decide to become a singer, but if you don’t live here, hiring an escort is a good idea as one can be paid for company, and she can also help you make new contacts and make the most of your time.
