Part I: London Pop and L.A. Indie (and Beyond)

___________

I will write another three instalments…

L.A.D.jpg

where all manner of artists will come under the radar. The first part focuses on Britain but does include some international talent – from the U.S. and Canada to Estonia and Australia. It does provide a window into what 2018’s music will look like; the artists who will make an impression and steps. I am looking forward to digging deeper into music and what will come along. It is an exciting time right now and there are so many great acts coming through...

Take a peek at the selected acts that, I feel, are going to make some moves towards the mainstream; continue to grow and establish themselves as stars-in-waiting…
