Little-Known Artists Playlist

By Emma Campanella


For me, discovering new artists who aren’t well-known is like finding hidden gems. I rely on music heavily on a daily basis, and finding new artists is a passion of mine. I usually keep my finds to myself, but now it’s time for them to be in the limelight.

My taste in music really varies; I can pretty much listen to anything except country, pop and heavy metal (I have an adverse reaction). But lately I’ve been really into genres like bluewave, neo-psychedelic, and funk-influenced songs that have a nice, bassy underbeat. I hope you find some new picks and get a taste of what I’ve been loving lately! You can check out our Spotify account, thespreaduiuc, to listen to this playlist and many others.

(P.S. – If you can, use earbuds or headphones. Some of the songs have stereo sound, which means different sounds go to each earbud for a really cool listening experience!)
