Well friends, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, Christmas is great, but I’m talking about end-of-the-year list season.
Getting things kicked off is my list of new music discoveries. Like every year when I post this list, let me clarify what I mean by “new music discoveries.” This is not necessarily only artists who first came out in 2020. This is one of the following three scenarios:
- 1. A brand new artist who appeared on the national scene for the first time in 2020. (Example: Remi Wolf)
2. An artist who had their debut full-length album in 2020. (This is for artists who might’ve released EPs or was a part of a band previously, but never a solo LP.) (Example: Hayley Williams)
3. An artist who I personally discovered for the first time ever in 2020. (Example: Brandy Clark)
Alright, here’s my list of the best new music discoveries of 2020.
- Remi Wolf
- Hayley Williams
- Brandy Clark
- Feng Suave
- Orville Peck
- The Blue Stones
- Man Man
- Christian Lee Hutson
- The Brummies
- Holly Humberstone
- Sarah Barrios
- Washed Out
You can find a playlist with a track from each artist on Apple Music and Spotify.
