‘Artists to Watch’ is now in its 6th year with the list consisting of 20 artists who Vevo believes will break through in the coming year. Vevo will premiere two performances from one artist per day from November 4th, with the rollout culminating on November 29th.
“Liily is one of those bands that you can’t quite pinpoint when it comes to their sound,” shares Justin Prager, Senior Director, Music Programming at Vevo. “One minute they’re melodic alt, the next they’re full-on noise rock. That’s the beauty of them. They represent a new Southern California musical esthetic: Loud and brash mixed with a gentle touch. Liily is helping to draw up the blueprint for what the next decade of guitar-driven music will look like.”
“DSCVR Artists to Watch is a key program for Vevo and now in its 6th year demonstrates our commitment to championing emerging artists.” says JP Evangelista, SVP of Content, Programming & Marketing. “The Vevo team takes great pride in fostering new talent and helping expose our audience to artists we feel will make an impact in the forthcoming year. We’re excited to shine a light on these 20 artists, and watch as they continue to grow their fan base into 2020.”
