Our round of the 2024 cohort of Vevo DSCVR’s Artists To Watch continues, with the focus on…
Jordan Ferree, Senior Manager, Artist & Label Relations: “Teezo Touchdown’s story is one of persistence, perseverance, and individuality. Over the past couple of years he has been releasing singles and hopping on features with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. With the release of his debut album, it is Teezo’s time to shine and he’s shaking the world with his ‘Rock & Boom’ sound – R&B with the intensity of rock with hip-hop penmanship.
“He has crafted a sound that every kind of music-lover can enjoy by blending and splashing genres even throughout one track. Teezo is absolutely an artist to watch in 2024 and likely a point of reference for many artists in years to come.”
Teezo Touchdown: “I’m very excited for the, pun intended, discovery. This is going to be someone’s first time hearing the name Teezo Touchdown – seeing what he looks like, seeing what he sounds like. So I am excited for that for me, and also for the other amazing artists that are a part of this class. You know, someone’s going to find a new artist today or be reminded why they love us.”
David McTiernan, Head of Artist/Label Relations & Digital Marketing:“Khamari’s talent and vision immediately stopped me in my tracks. He draws equally from Nina Simone and Mac Miller, puts his craft first and foremost, and cares deeply about the visuals he creates that bring his stories to life.
“While his debut album feels completely at home alongside buzzy 2023 peers like Dijon, Leon Thomas, and (fellow DSCVR Artist to Watch) Fridayy, there’s an undeniably timeless quality to his music that leads us to believe we’ll be talking about and listening to Khamari for many years to come.”
Lyva Corvo, Manager, Music & Talent, France: “Harley’s journey, fueled by his ‘Supalife’ concept tracks, reveals a versatile artist who effortlessly blends afrobeat and amapiano rhythms, seamlessly navigating between melody and controlled flow. His music radiates with his joy for life, and it was definitely a pleasure to work with him!
“Harley is an incredibly talented artist, and I can’t wait for the world to witness his talent. I’m thrilled to have him as one of our Artists to Watch 2024 and can’t wait to see what the future holds for him!”
Harley: “Being selected for Vevo DSCVR ATW 2024 is an honor. Many talented artists are chosen every year, so being a part of it today is a real source of pride. I’ll be sharing my energy and music with you through these wonderful sessions.”
Shannon Pires, Associate Manager, Artist & Label Relations: “Capturing our attention with tracks like Pretty Girl Era and her feature on Latto’s Lottery, LU KALA is an undeniable pop powerhouse. With her infectious hooks, striking melodies, and skillful lyrics, the Congolese-Canadian singer-songwriter is one-of-a-kind, and her latest single, Hotter Now, continues to cement her as one of the most exciting acts in pop music.
“We’re so excited to be in our ‘LU KALA Era’ and to invite her to our Artists to Watch stage as we know she’ll be an unstoppable force through 2024 and beyond!”
LU KALA: “Thank you Vevo for selecting me as one of your DSCVR Artists to Watch. I’m honored to be a part of such an incredible class and I’m blown away by Vevo’s dedication to uplifting and supporting artists throughout their journeys. Cheers to the class of 2024!”
