“The Best Emerging Artists of 2014″


The Silent Scene is on the verge of a breakthrough. The track Collecting Hearts is our favorite and they were also featured on iTunes New & Noteworthy. This is band to watch.



Justin Kump, the singer-songwriter has begun to make a mark. His album debuted on the U.S. iTunes Singer-Songwriter Chart earning him solid press, and Sirius XM invited him to perform on at their studios in NYC. This ability to craft catchy but sincere songs has garnered comparisons to James Taylor, Phillip Phillips, and Damien Rice since his arrival on the scene in 2006. He’s a musician’s musician (having once recorded and mixed a full album in a makeshift studio of blankets and a ping-pong table in his brother’s family room), and is an engaging performer whose songs are the perfect soundtrack for sun-drenched picnic days and shared starry nights. But Justin’s complete mastery of the guitar is the cornerstone of his ability to connect with any audience, and is at the foundation of his Spring 2014 release, The Night is Young. Check out his track The Night is Young.


Emmy Bachmann is a brand new artist on the scene yet has already been dubbed a blond bombshell singer-songwriter by PopWrapped. Her new 6 song EP is a collection of songs that tells a different part of her life story. They are honest, personal and versatile similar to the music styles of Adele, Alanis Morissette, Christina Perry and Lana Del Rey. Our favorite tracks are I Don’t Love Him and Rescue Yourself.

A chance meeting with a like-minded producer and songwriter would make it possible for her to live the dream of working on her music outside of Switzerland. Compiling a host of trips and experiences in New York City, Vava Voom’s music and style would start to take on a new look, shape and sound. Pop music that she thought was fun, sexy and cool, with no boundaries, and the imagery to accompany that. From electro and indy-pop, to house and genre bending traces of rock and urban, nothing was off limits. “It sounds like a uniquely directed, cool iTunes radio station. Lots of stuff that you like all in one.” With this newly found confidence, she got her bearings as a songwriter, guitarist, piano player and a powerhouse singer, “at the same !@#$%^&* time”!
