New Artists to keep an eye on if you dig Country, Soul, Rap or Singer-Songwriters

Since I work in Nashville and adjacent to the music business if people like I can throw out new folks that are worth listening to that are new. Here are three:

Yola (Singer-Songwriter/Folk/Country/Soul)
Yola is from the UK. Yola has played so many local shows recently and is making a name for herself in Nashville. She recently opened for Kacey Musgraves at a show I was at recently. She’s also on the title track for the new Highwomen album:

Vincent Neil Emerson (Country)
From Dallas, Texas. He’s a great artist and on a friend’s label.

CHIKA (Rapper/Singer)
From Alabama and the next great female rapper.
