It’s time once again for a fresh batch of profiles detailing acts on the brink of the big time. Previous episodes of our New & Developing roundup have put the spotlight on such fledgling talents as Adele, Katy Perry, Hozier and Mumford & Sons.
The new crop is a typically eclectic assortment of styles and genres, including the electro-pop of Photo Finish/Republic’s Marian Hill (pictured on this week's mag cover with labelmates Post Malone, Julia Michaels and Aminé); the gorgeous plaint of Columbia Brit troubadour James Arthur; the bird-flipping alternative attitude of RCA’s Missio; the infectious hip-hop of Quality Control/Motown/Capitol’s Lil Yachty; the propulsive, pop-flavored EDM of Disruptor’s Lost Kings; and the sassy country of Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope’s Lauren Alaina. Now, when someone asks you what’s new, you’ll know what to say.
