Well I finally made it through my Artists to Watch for 2017! I’m excited to have accomplished my first goal for Symbiosis Music and can’t wait to start tackling the next ones. I decided it was worth quickly revisiting the list before diving into new music because this will serve as the core roster of artists I am going to be covering in the coming year. As of now I’m working alone so covering all the music I want to won’t be feasible, so this seems like a good place to start. Not to worry, I already have lots of other artists I’m excited about and you’ll see plenty of them as well.
I’m hoping my Artists to Watch gave you a bit of a taste for what type of music to expect on my blog. As you could probably tell, I have a definite bent towards electronic left-of-center pop music, but I like to think I have a fairly broad appreciation for different types of music. Some people may disagree, but maybe I’ll convince you I do when I start featuring more diverse artists as I get going and some of the genres missing from my list start to make appearances.
