After months of receiving countless suggestions from all you lovely people, I finally responded to a few of those who submitted an artist suggestion and started working on compiling my favorite suggestions on this here blog and on my Blogger account. This past semester was really trying and I never got around to anything blog related, but if there’s one thing I’m going to change in 2013 it’s to make an effort to significantly grow this blog.
So, without further to do, here are a few of my favorite suggestions. Expect to see a Mainstream Indie Artist Suggestions post in addition to Vol. 2 of the Up-and-Coming Artist suggestions in a few days.
Up-and-Coming Artists Vol. 1
Boise, Idaho based Alternative-Folk band Hollow Wood possess a strong three-part harmony reminiscent of big-name bands Local Natives and Of Monsters and Men, but the raw and heartfelt passion of a genuine indie band. Check out their powerful live session for their track Little Bird which is up for free download on the band’s Bandcamp.
With songs that spew true emotion and a dynamic voice, this Brooklynite spares no effort to be unique in the overwhelmingly vast Pop/Alternative Rock scene. Check out Vieem’s Soundcloud to listen to a few of her R&B infused rock tracks.
For fans of Bob Dylan, John Mayer, and The Rubens, Emil Lager is a pleasant combination of the three with an added hint of charm who’ll leave you yearning for a visit to the countryside.Watch the jean-clad, London-based crooner’s roof-top video for Fire Escape and check out Emil’s other tracks on his Soundcloud.
