I’m really liking Gracie Convert and her newly released track Maybe. Think r&b meets pop. A regular on the London and Leeds live scene, she made some noise with her first track I’m Fine which got picked up by Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds Poptronix’. The London based singer-songwriter also picked up shout-outs from BBC and tastemakers like Ear Milk and Pop Culturalist. Give it a stream.
Los Angeles based Rachel Shaps drops the up-tempo Getting Over You (feat. Bellla). If you want to revisit Tropical House, try this track. Her grandmother is the legendary Eartha Kitt known for the 1953 recordings of “C’est si bon” and the Christmas smash “Santa Baby”, which were both US Top 10 hits. The 23 year old garnered attention from Pop Dust, Pop-Culturalist, and Naulda Mag.
New Zealand based RIIKI releases ‘High Heights‘. It’s a cool track and definitely worth a listen. The 20 year old indie pop artist worked on her latest track with producer Simon Gooding (Ed Sheeran, P!nk, Migos, Dua Lipa, Neil Finn). The new track follows her debut single ‘One Day’, which premiered on NZ’s hit radio network ZM, landing on Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist.
Watch out for Haiti native Tedy. The Montreal based artist released the dark-soulful pop track Stuck via Sony Canada. The track was co-produced with Herag Sanbalian alongside Mike Wise (Bulow, Ellie Goulding, Chainsmokers, Upshal). He racked over 16M+ global Spotify streams, 157K monthly listeners and 1M+ YouTube subscribers across his channels.

Look out for the Australian based Maddy Rowe that goes under the moniker GENES .
