Google Play Music’s Ones to Watch In 2016


Everybody is doing it, doing it, doing it. Earlier we got BBC’s Long List Of Musicians predicted to rise in 2016. These are the same guys who have picked Wolf Alice last year, and Sam Smith, Adele and others in previous years,,, A little obvious right? Years & Years were their top pick last year.

For 2016:

Izzy Bizu
Alessia Cara
Loyle Carner
Jack Garratt
J Hus
Dua Lipa
Billie Marten
Mura Masa
Rat Boy
Section Boyz

Now here are is Google Play’s picked to click.

Jack Garratt
Clean Cut Kid
Kali Uchis
Samm Henshaw

I am not sure if this isn’t somewhat self evident, Alessia Cara has been a name to drop since the summer, Jack Garrett, WSTRN, Aurora, Tink, and Clean Cut Kids have had a pretty good year. There was a while there Tink was all over hip hop songs. She has over half a million monthly listeners on Spotify.

Still, quite a few of these names are fresh to me.

The name that I didn’t know and just listened to with great pleasure is soul woman Izzy Bizu. The one name that jumps out at  me that I’vee written about a number of times is  WSTRN. I loved “In2” and their sound is very bog in 2015, very mainstream success wise. Personally, I believe Anderson Paak is gonna have a huge 2016.

So let the new year begin!
