Tired of Top 40? 15 Under-the-Radar Musicians You Need to Know Now



Feeling a little tired of all the summer jamz on the radio? Have “Fancy” and “Rude” become too grating for words? Or even if they haven’t, are you ready for something different to listen to?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then look no further than this playlist! This list contains 15 artists — some new comers, some who are a bit older but are just beginning to make a splash. It’s a pretty eclectic mix with musical styles ranging from pop to rock to soul and everything in between.

Differing genres aside, these artists all have something in common: good music! I love them all but personal faves include Hozier, Vance Joy, and Sylvan Esso. You can click the link below to listen to the full playlist on Spotify. FYI, some of the songs do have strong language so depending on who you’re around, you made need some headphones. Hope you find some new music to add to your summer playlist!
