80 Artists To Watch In 2014

Submitted by / 5 years ago / Featured, Features, Staff Picks

Eva Stone Artists To Watch 2014

Eva Stone

Eva Stone is probably up there as one of the best pure vocalists on this whole list, which is an achievement in itself. A single listen to any of her material will leave you weak at the knees.

I’ll let her talents speak for themselves below:

Meg Myers Artist To Watch 2014

Meg Myers

Meg Myers is an American vocalist and songwriter, who is produced almost exclusively by the incredible Doctor Rosen Rosen. She has produced some of the most raw, emotive, material that we have heard in ages, and you can’t help but to be drawn in.

Florrie Artist To Watch 2014

Florrie

We seem to have been tracking Florrie for the longest time, but as of yet the pop starlet has not graced us with a debut album. This may have something to do with the fact that she’s also a professional model, but that’s honestly no excuse.

We’ve loved some of her previous material, and I think fans of hers alike will agree that a debut album is long overdue.

Mapei Artists To Watch 2014

Mapei

Swedish rapper/vocalist Mapei created quite a stir in 2013 with the release of her debut single “Don’t Wait“. She initially caught our attention back in 2009, but with the release of her “Cocoa Butter Diaries” EP, she’s returning to the spotlight with the release of her debut album which is scheduled for 2014.

Laura Welsh Artist To Watch 2014

Laura Welsh

Laura Welsh is an English singer-songwriter who was cooking up absolute fire with Dev Hynes during 2013. She has already performed under several other monikers, but this one seems here to stay, as she goes from strength to strength with every release.

Jhene Aiko Artists To Watch 2014

Jhené Aiko

Jhené Aiko is a 25-year old singer who has already been hailed as the female saviour of R&B. Her sweet and breathy voice has already infused songs by the likes of Drake, J. Cole, and Big Sean, but this year sees the release of her long awaited full length studio album. Excited.

Jetta Artists To Watch 2014

Jetta

In December 2011 we first featured Jetta on the blog, where she was a guest vocalist for the ever impressive UK producer Jakwob on a track called “Electrify“. We were amazed by her voice back then, and nothing has really changed since then in that respect.

Unfortunately we haven’t had much in the way of music from her since, just three tracks. They are all quite amazing though, and her latest release “Feels Like Coming Home” was featured as the headline song on Google’s 2013 Zeitgeist video, which has since been viewed 26 million times.

Big songs. Big voice. Big potential.

MØ Artist To Watch 2014

Danish pop singer and Diplo collaborator already lit up the music world last year with previous singles  “Pilgrim” and “XXX 88“, and even contributed to Avicii‘s new album with the monster hit “Dear Boy“. Her debut LP, “No Mythologies to Follow“, out February 24.

Charlotte OC Artists To Watch 2014

Charlotte OC

Charlotte OC was originally signed and dropped by record label Columbia in her late teens. Now shes back in the spotlight aged 23, with her successful “Colour Of My Heart” EP catching many people’s eye last year. We’re big fans of getting at least a second chance in an industry that can often chew up great artists and spit them out at will.

Hopefully 2014 will be a great year for this talented singer/songwriter.

Lulu James Artists To Watch 2014

Lulu James

Lulu James has been successfully combining current influences like James Blake and Jamie XX with her enormous vocal talent and love of soul music, to create what she calls “21st century soul.”. Whatever it is, we love it and can’t wait to hear more.

Tove Lo Artist To Watch 2014

Tove Lo

Tove Lo signed to Universal last year, and since then we have been treated to Stockholm’s latest pop star in the making releasing big sound with big budget videos to boot.

We are slightly in love (No pun intended).

Pawws Artists To Watch 2014

Pawws

Pawws is the alias of Londoner Lucy Taylor, who has been delivering some choice disco/electro cuts in 2013. She has also been hanging around a lot with Kele Okereke by the looks of her Twitter account, and that can only be a good thing in our eyes.
