“In its first year, MTV’s Artist To Watch tapped the likes of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Zedd and Austin Mahone for greatness … a pretty decent track record, if you ask us.
Now, ATW is back with its 2014 picks, a list of acts we think you’ll be hearing plenty about in the months to come: From UK indie-electro bands like Bastille and Chvrces and up-and-coming EDM talents like Flume and Martin Garrix to pitch-perfect pop standouts Fifth Harmony, rappers like Danny Brown and R&B singers such as Jhene Aiko, there’s something for everyone.
Check out the full list of MTV’s 2014 Artist To Watch picks right now!
Every two weeks, we’ll select and feature a new Artist to Watch, who will be showcased across MTV’s various television channels, websites and apps and social networks. We’ll bring you exclusive live performances and interviews, place their videos in rotation and feature their songs in our shows … and it all kicks off on January 23, with an epic concert at Los Angeles’ House of Blues.
Fifth Harmony, Jake Miller, Tori Kelly, Echosmith and Rixton are all set to appear at the first Artist To Watch showcase of 2014 … and you can get your tickets right now. Though if you can’t make it to L.A. for the show, fear not: it’ll also stream live on MTV.com. And this isn’t some one-time affair; MTV will be hosting additional Artist To Watch events throughout the year.” -MTV.com
