Three new artists for you to listen to this week.

We've been gone for a minute, but we're back. Yesterday's A&R Meeting with our staff proved the discovery of these three dope artists, we're sharing with you today.

We've always made a conscious effort to mine for, and introduce, new and undiscovered talent to the site. Without getting into the specifics (*eye roll emoji*), as a user, you'll likely know of a particular artist that you first encountered here on the HNHH pages. With that being said, beyond combing through our regular submissions for our weekend Heatseeker highlights, we're going to be spotlighting our favorite staff and user-submitted tracks each week, following our in-office A&R meeting. 

Here's a quick breakdown of how it works.

  • Every week, each of our staff members submits a song from an artist we've never yet (or ~barely~) posted on HNHH (so get your song into the hands of a staff member, and wow them with your musical prowess, hint hint) 
  • The song does not need to be new, in fact, most of the time, it's an older record
  • This can include music videos
  • We listen to all the submissions as a team (weekly) 
  • Each staff member votes on their top three favorite submissions out of that week's batch of submissions 
  • We cull the votes, and feature the top 3 on the website, in a handy article like this
  • Also: in an effort to include direct user/fan-submitted music as well, we'll be going through our Soundcloud messages and picking out the best submissions we find there, to include in our meeting each week (please send us your most fire submissions, it can be your song or someone else's). You can expect to see a tweet from our twitter whenever we're going through submissions.

Now that you have the breakdown, take a look at this week's three new artist discoveries-- we've included some basic info on each as well. This week we stay with artists in Canada and the UK, two singers and one rapper, culled from our Soundcloud messages.
