Over the next few weeks, in a series of posts, MBW will be showcasing all the artists featured in VEVO’s DSCVR Artists To Watch 2021 list.
In the first week, we introduced you to Bow Anderson, Surf Mesa, Gracey, Shaybo and Giveon.
Last week, we previewed Toosii, Flo Milli, S1MBA, Pa Salieu, KennyHoopla.
Here’s this week’s round-up…
Carl Young, Head of Music & Talent, EU, said: “There’s no denying Scribz Riley’s talent, already a highly acclaimed award-winning producer with two Grammy awards!
“Scribz is responsible for some of the biggest records over the last few years. Now with only four Scribz Riley releases, he’s already cemented himself as an artist we all need to pay attention to.
“2021 is going to be his year and we’re excited to introduce him with these DSCVR Artist To Watch 2021 performances.”
Alex Morley, Manager, Music & Content, said: “We can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for Finn Askew.
“With just a handful of tracks released it’s already very clear that Finn is a gifted songwriter, producer and performer with a wide range of influences. With his Peach EP dropping in January there’s plenty more in store from the talented 19 year old.
“I was so impressed hearing Finn’s vocal range in the studio, he’s got a soulful tone that seems effortless and is sure to hit-home with fans across the globe.”
Finn Askew said: “So gassed to be part of VEVO’s Artists To Watch 2021! To see my name up with all this other talent is crazy! This is all bless!”
Sam Mackoff, Senior Manager, Artist & Label Relations, said: “Remi Wolf is undeniably one of the most exciting new voices in pop music.
“Her authenticity coupled with her catchy tracks & wildly creative visuals has us excited for what’s to come.
“Remi’s self-described “funky soul pop” music, has paved a lane that is so uniquely her own. Earlier this year, her EP, I’m Allergic To Dogs!, caught our attention & landed her a feature in our DSCVR at Home series.
“We are excited to continue the partnership with Artist to Watch, as the momentum continues into 2021 & beyond.”
Added Remi Wolf: “I am truly honored to be included in an incredible group of creative and progressive artists. I’m so excited especially because it was my first time performing with my band in so long. I needed that. I love Vevo. Vevo is life blood. God bless Vevo.”
Amberliz Mateo, Associate Manager, Music Programming, said: “There’s no doubt that at just 19 years old 24kGoldn has made massive waves in the music industry with the success of his biggest hit ‘Mood’.
“While being at the top of the list in multiple genre categories, the singer/rapper has proven that the idea of being confined to one single genre just doesn’t exist anymore.
Mateo added: “With his creativity and distinct sound, 24kGoldn is bound to have a vibe for everyone.
“We’re so excited to have him as part of our DSCVR ‘Artist To Watch’ roster and we’re certain that there will be much more success for him in 2021.”
24kGoldn said: “Had a lot of fun performing these songs with my best friend omer, can’t wait for the world to see everything we’ve been workin on.”
