MBW’s round-up of this year’s Vevo DSCVR Artists To Watch list continues with…
Alex Morley, Senior Manager, Music & Talent, UK: “Earlier this year Mae Stephens did her last shift at Asda and embarked on her career as a full-time singer and songwriter. With her hit single If We Ever Broke Up approaching one billion global streams, we can all agree that was a wise choice!
Mae has a natural ear for melody and her songwriting is unquestionable, connecting with fans across the globe. We can’t wait to see what 2024 brings for Mae and her misfits!”
Mae Stephens: “I can’t believe I have been selected to be one of the 20 DSCVR artists and one of the Artists to Watch for 2024, I feel so privileged and honored to be added to the list alongside some other incredible talents! I had to pinch myself and make sure I wasn’t dreaming when the Vevo team reached out to me.
“It was an incredible experience working with the Vevo team. I had the best day ever! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did making it. Thank you so much!”
Mika Sunga, Senior Manager, Music Programming: “Representing the BX, ScarLip came in and shook the game up. The first time I heard her I knew she was a star. She has a raspy and deep voice that demands attention, big energy, and a crazy life that makes her raps personal and relatable.
She became a household name when she dropped This is New York, which got her noticed by legends in hip-hop like Swiss Beatz, Snoop Dogg, and Busta Rhymes to name a few. But this is only the beginning of her journey and we’re excited to see what 2024 holds for her next.”
ScarLip: “Wow! I’m not used to being a part of things, honestly. Growing up, I always felt out of place, like the odd one out, but I always knew I wanted to be big and I knew I wanted to stand out. Now everything that made me odd is exactly why I’m a part of the 2024 class of Artists To Watch. Big shout out to all of my classmates! To God be the glory.”
Morely: “Dublin singer and producer Jazzy is making waves in the dance scene and beyond. Her debut EP ‘Constellations’ is only continue to grow and take her to the next level in 2024. We’ve no doubt this is just the start for Jazzy!”
Jazzy: “It’s so great to be acknowledged as one of Vevo’s DSCVR artists alongside so many other super-talented artists. This shoot was so cool to take part in and special for me, being my first time recording a live performance from my debut EP.
Working with such a great platform and in such a cool space is super exciting and new for me. Big thanks to Vevo for the amazing opportunity and hope you all enjoy.”
Carl Young, Head of Music & Talent, EU: Elmiene is the voice of a generation, a voice that demands your attention, his soulful and warm vocals captivate and soothe the soul. His debut EP, Marking My Time, is an accomplished body of work from a new, exciting and very distinctive artist. I’m delighted to have Elmiene involved in this year’s DSCVR Artists To Watch, truly something to behold for 2024, and beyond!”
Elmiene: “Yo! Super-gassed to have been picked by Vevo to be a part of their DSCVR Artists To Watch campaign. Good to be sat among everyone else who’s been a part of this list this year. I was most definitely not shook to do this so safe to everyone in the crew for not shaking me up. Appreciate it!!”Music Business Worldwide
