Chelsea Cutler


Instantly relatable lyrics and handcrafted lo-fi soundscapes have established Chelsea Cutler as a quiet, yet disruptive, a force for popular music. Within two short years, the singer, songwriter, and producer went from bedroom-constructed uploads to 750 million-plus cumulative streams.

Chelsea Cutler kicks off the next chapter of her sophomore album, “When I Close My Eyes” out October 15th, with a massive co-headline fall tour with Quinn XCII and more new music.

Lyn Lapid


A classically trained musician, unpredictable vocal dynamo, and fearless genre-breaker, Lyn Lapid assert herself as an individual through and through. At 18-years-old, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and member of the vocal collective EARCANDY has unassumingly emerged as an unapologetic and undeniable voice for her generation.

Lyn first teased “In My Mind” on TikTok, and the video quickly garnered over 3 million views in just a few days with her fans lovingly dubbing the song the “quiet kids song.”

Claire Rosinkranz


Southern California singer, songwriter, ballerina, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Rosinkranz grafts the Gen-Z coming-of-age experience onto quirky D.I.Y. soundscapes often cooked up by her dad in the garage.

Within a year, the 17-year-old phenomenon has eclipsed over half a billion total streams and received widespread acclaim courtesy of Rolling Stone, Variety, Coup de Main, Buzzfeed, Genius, and more. OnesToWatch championed her as one of its “Top Artists To Watch in 2021,” while New York Times and Billboard named her breakout anthem “Backyard Boy” among “The Best Songs of 2020.”



Vancouver pop artist JESSIA is something of an enigma upon introduction. Witty, self-deprecating, brutally honest, and spilling over with spot-on stories about… life. The iconoclastic, break-out star of 2021, whose breathtakingly candid lyrics made the single “I’m not Pretty” a global smash hit and a bona fide body empowerment anthem, resonates with listeners in a way that’s rarely ever seen.

“How Are You?”, releasing 15 Oct, executive produced by Ryan Tedder and elijah woods, continues JESSIA’s beguiling, super-relatable story.

Just Stef


What do you call a vocal dynamo who can belt in English and Spanish and posts hilarious viral sketches, but doesn’t take herself too seriously? Just Stef… She appeals to an audience of millions on social media, because—as a first-generation Argentinian-American who has moved around since she was a little kid—she’s also real and relatable.

 Just Stef recorded herself and put a snippet of “Miss U Miss Me” up on TikTok. The rest is history as the song blew up, amassing millions of plays and thousands of videos. It initially caught fire on TikTok, piling up over 5 million views on a snippet in three weeks.

Kim Petras


Since first emerging on the scene, Kim Petras has self-styled a massively dynamic career, that’s included selling out headline tours of North America and Europe and earning lavish praise from major mainstream publications and taste-making outlets worldwide—while embodying the type of larger-than-life magnetism that inevitably inspires worshipful emulation.

At the age of 20, Petras saved up all her money from a waitressing gig and booked a flight to L.A. to launch her music career. Not long after her move to L.A., her 2017 hit “I Don’t Want It At All” (a #1 hit on Spotify’s Global Viral 50) and her first Top 40 smash “Heart to Break.”
