The Ones to Watch 2017: Part Two
AFTER yesterday’s list of wonderful musical talent…
I have been compelled to come back and compile another list – I still have one more left to go! From Canadian, U.S. and Australian talent; wonderful acts across the U.K. – a thorough run-down of the artists who will be making sensational music in 2017. This year has been full and surprising: that is going to increase and augment in the coming months. With so many new musicians coming through it can be hard deciphering the good from the bad – I have given it a pretty good shot! I have followed the artists (below) and seen them grow: put my thoughts on paper and fallen for the music and been seduced. Have a look and listen to the fifty-or-so artists below and keep your eyes on them – talent that will light up 2017.
