I made a playlist last year doing the same as this, and feel the majority of them made a big impact. I’m not saying they went from less than 1000 plays to millions on Spotify and touring the world (Lewis Capaldi… in fact, he didn’t even have a song released at the start of 2017…) but they 100% made an impact. A few of them were –
The Amazons, Vistas, Marsicans, Will Joseph Cook, Ten Tonnes, LANY, Louis Berry, Declan McKenna, COIN, Tom Misch, Loyle Carner.
All of these artists have mad such a huge impact, whether it was within their own country or on a national/international scale.
So I decided to do another one this year, which you can find a playlist including all the artists I feel will make an impact in 2018.
I hope you enjoy, and if you do give it a follow and a share!
