artists to watch 2019

Ama Lou, TT the Artist, Kojey Radical, Jaimie Branch, Kelsey Lu, Koffee, slowthai, Alicai Harley and Amindi K. Fro$t

In this mix, we start off with tenor saxophonist Nubya Garcia. Nubya is one of the artist leading the way for the UK Jazz scene. What Kamasi Washington has done for jazz in States, she is set to do the same thing in the UK in 2019.

Later we move on to Ama Lou. She will be 2019’s Jorja Smith and it doesn’t hurt to have the endorsement of one Drake. Another amazing UK singer. Only 18 years old, she is set to be the R&B breakout of 2019.

In the second hour of the show, we move into more upcoming rap with slowthai.  Could this be the year that grime breaks into the States? If it is, slowthai will be one of the ones leading the way.  He has been compared to artists like Dizzee Rascal and The Streets.
