If 2016 has shown us anything when it comes to the music industry, it’s that there’s never really a clear indication as to where the industry will go to next as far as musical genre, style, or where the newest catchy beat will come from next. No one can really predict what’s going to happen to the music industry in the near future, or who the next breakout star is going to be. But there are a few talents that deserve notice; these are the artists that you should watch out for in 2017.
A Shrewsbury-born artist with an incredible voice, Dan Owen has the talent and the charm, to boot, that has proven to be a huge hit with fans. In 2016, Dan Owen, along with Kaleo, opened for Birdy during her 2016 tour in England, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, and Scotland.
This Scottish three-piece band features a unique sound that fans can appreciate. But the real weapon of this great-sounding musical act lies in their front man/lady, Charlotte Brimner. The singer/songwriter received praise and accolades for her unique vocal style and fluid use of both analog and digital sounds.
Sony made the right move giving Nadia a record deal, but what set her apart from the rest of up and comers are her unique sound, catchy beats, and a confident attitude.
Born in Bedford, Tom Grennan was raised in London where he caught mainstream attention after receiving a gig as a guest vocalist for Chase & Status’ song When It All Goes Wrong. Grennan has a unique and unforgettable voice. Fans who have seen him perform live know how electrifying and awesome his performances can be. If you love the musical style of Bon Iver, then you will definitely enjoy Tom Grennan’s music.
Will Joseph Cook
Will Joseph Cook is perhaps one of the latest products of YouTube. Uploading both covers and original songs, Cook eventually got signed to Atlantic Records where he is now working to complete his debut album. This 19-year-old singer/songwriter offers a cool, mature pop sound that can brighten up most of your rainy days. His lyrics tackle everyday problems that almost all of us deal with, from relationships to self-doubt. He just does it in a cool, funny way that will make you smile.
