The holidays are here, and it’s a time to give thanks and take inventory of the things we love. As 2021 draws to a close, we continue to be thankful for the impeccable artistry and unparalleled work of our indie affiliates—so much so that we’re bringing you an extra, all-original edition of the Indie Spotlight to round out what has been a most wonderful year of indie music. Kicking off part one of this two-part edition is BEAM, an out-of-this-world talent who is quickly becoming a leader in the industry, followed by Annika Bennett, whose EP, Only Emotion, put her on the map and took her all over it this year. With his kaleidoscopic, easy-like-SUNDAYS sound, Nate Mercereau keeps it going, with vaultboy coming next to explain that sometimes, music actually is “rocket science.” Our final two features are the GRAMMY-winning POINTS, who is doing what he’s gotta do, and Windser, whose hit with Macklemore, “Next Year,” is already lighting up playlists this year.
To learn more about each of these six exciting artists, check out their bios included here, and be sure to visit our Spotify page to listen to our curated playlist featuring selections from each of them.
Don’t forget to come back at the top of next year to see who will be featured on BMI Indie Spotlight: Winter, Pt. 2!
