Is Maryland the new hotbed for music? The viral Spotify artist Arizona Zervas who just inked a deal with Columbia is from the Chesapeake Bay State, as well as REI AMI, the next artist breaking on Spotify. The majors are pursuing the South Korea native after her tracks landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Anti Pop Playlist. Now, she is #5 on New Music Friday. If REI AMI strikes a deal with a major she will mark the third Spotify viral artist this month following Arizona Zervas and Ant Saunders to have conquered the playlists as an indie artist.
