I have always loved finding an undiscovered gem in the music world. Witnessing their rise and willing them on from the dingy underground rooms to selling-out arenas. My favourite moments are watching Ed Sheeran for a fiver in 2010 and seeing James Bay as a third support act.
Here are my five tracks from bands that you need to catch before it becomes impossible to grab a ticket.
The Hunna – Piece by Piece
The Hunna released their first album in 2016 and have already featured as BBC Radio One’s “Track of the Day”. They write great indie pop songs with choruses that stick in your head.
Cattle & Cane – Make Your Vision
Cattle & Cane are a family band from Stockton-on-Tees. Their second album “Mirrors” is due for release in April this year. The latest track from the upcoming album is a change of pace from their first album “Home”, but I love it!
FRONTEERS – Nothings ever that simple
FRONTEERS are a young band from Hull who have been slogging away in little venues and down the order at festivals. 2017 could be their breakthrough year so make sure you snap up those cheap tickets while you still have the chance.
Hudson Taylor – Chasing Rubies
A favourite of DJ Greg James, Hudson Taylor are two Irish brothers with acoustic guitars. They create melodic anthems with upbeat riffs and catchy lyrics.
Broken Witt Rebels – Shake Me Down
Broken Witt Rebels are rockier than the others in the list with an old-school Kings of Leon vibe. They won an unsigned artist of the year award in 2016 and this year has the potential to be massive for the Birmingham band.
