There are tons of amazing new artists making their way into the scene in all types of genres such as: rock, indie, pop and rap but here are my 4 favorites on the rise to fame:


Astr is a two piece electric R&B group from New York. I first heard them while they were on tour with Ryn Weaver last fall. Their sound is super fun and catchy and just total dance party vibes. They have been together since 2011 but fly under the radar. I would love to see this group blow up, they're something fresh that I think the music industry could use.

An American pop duo from LA, HOLYCHILD is taking over the pop genre with what they call "brat pop." I first found out about them while they were also on tour with Ryn Weaver. Their lyrics and music are extremely catchy. It's something new and they aren't scared to take some risks with their sound.

I couldn't put Astr and HOLYCHILD on the list and not put the artist who helped me discover them. Ryn Weaver is a solo artist from California. She first gained attention with her song "Octahate" and hasn't slowed down since.

Her songs are extremely emotional and extremely addictive. She's a breath of fresh air in the music industry and it's really nice to see. She is the total definition of a strong, independent female role model; I look up to her for many reasons: she genuinely loves her fans and she makes that known when you meet her. She also stands up for women's right and isn't scared to put herself out there in a mostly man ruled industry. She proudly makes my list of artists you need to know.

Hailing from my home state of Massachusetts, Pvris is a 3 piece rock trio that brings something completely unique to the rock genre for our generation. They formed in 2012, and since then they have been taking the world by storm. Currently on tour with Fall Out Boy and previously toured with the Vans Warped Tour, Pvris is a band you just do not want to miss out on.
