Want to be part of those who find artists before everyone else knows about them? You’re in the right place. Artists like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendez, and many more were once upstarts whose music was first discovered on platforms like YouTube before the world knew about them.
It’s a little different right now because music streaming services give access to anyone to put their music out there. But there are still some no one has bothered to check out that will only become popular when they begin releasing real projects in the coming years.
Music lovers are always on the hunt for new music that speaks to their souls and in the process discover great sounds earlier than the average listener. If you’re a music lover you’d certainly love to be part of the first samplers of great music so here’s a bit of the discovery done for you.
You may not have heard of the Maryland rapper, Redveil who released Bittersweet Cry in 2019 and followed up the year after with an amazing project called Niagara. This project is undoubtedly the rapper’s greatest masterpiece so far and music critics have described it as having an extremely mature sound with straightforward and raw lyrics. Even more amazing is that Redveil is a teenager full of soulful emotion and he lets it out in his music just like was noted in the song ‘Drown’ that was led by guitar and rife with concrete emotion.
The rapper is giving a new feel to hip hop while leveraging and paying homage to musical geniuses of an earlier generation. The young teenage rapper both produces his music and raps. He simply puts his soul into his music and lets it flow from there. He says he’s gearing up for another project that goes even ‘deeper than Niagara’, and with what we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be something amazing.
Reggie is the type of vibe that once you hear, you know it’s something different and new. The Los Angeles-based artist who was brought up in Houston Texas is anything but traditional with his music. It’s the real future of alternative music with this one, especially judging from his debut single "Southside Fade."
After a producer heard Reggie’s single, he immediately signed him up. The song wasn’t anything new according to Reggie who said he had made the song while he was still in his hometown of Houston. And music critics say it is evident in the feel of the song as it mixes a southern charm with the R&B hip-hop vibe.
The song came as a form of introduction to the person that Reggie is and the sincerity of that sound has gotten fans to fall in love with Reggie rather quickly.
Still keeping his head low, Reggie seems uninterested in fame and more interested in authenticity. Artists who have been significant in their time are usually characterized with things like this and if your eyes aren’t anywhere else in the future of this music industry, you should definitely keep one out for Reggie.
