NPR's 2018 Slingshot Artists

Postby SDClark5 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 11:03 am

Slingshot is an NPR project that shines a spotlight on emerging artists.

Here's their 2018 list: https://www.npr.org/2018/01/09/570751142/slingshot2018

A couple of my favorites (Jade Bird and Phoebe Bridgers) made the list and there are several more on the list who are brand new to me that I need to check out.

Thanks for sharing!
So, can I spend the rest of my life in bed?

The power of the AT Forum reveals itself once again.

This morning as I was listening to the first band from the list that caught my attention, Mt. Joy, an email notification popped up on my computer screen. It was from a nearby club announcing their recently booked acts. First on the list - Mt. Joy!

Saw Mt Joy open for Lone Bellow last fall. They were ok, but didn't have me excited. :?
From that Slingshot list, I'm looking forward to checking out more from Gracie and Rachel and also Phoebe Bridgers, who is coming to Ohio in April.
