FIVE ARTISTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Here are five emerging artists that you need to know this year – Mike Posner, The Hurts, Diana Vickers, Alexandra Burke and Miranda Cosgrove. Get to know them today!

MIKE POSNER

Never heard of Mike Posner? It’s time you find out who he is… Mike is a recent graduate of Duke University. He started out making mixtapes in his dorm room and gaining a following on his campus performing live. This following started to grow…and GROW.

Now his explosive first single “Cooler Than Me” is conquering nearly every US chart available! The song is included in his debut album “31 Minutes to Take Off” where he co-wrote and co-produced every track. It features collaborations from Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, 3Oh!3), Boys II Men, Smeezingtons (B.O.B), and Travis Barker. “31 Minutes to Takeoff” is set for release in September.

Watch the music video of “Cooler Than Me” directed by Jason Beattie, and shot in Los Angeles. It’s a high energy, fast paced video full of subtle effects and intense color work.

The Los Angeles Times recently called Posner “…pop’s next best thing.” and Entertainment Weekly featured him in The Bullseye and said “On Mike Posner’s first single “Cooler Than Me,” he sings, “If I could write you a song to make you fall in love…” He just did.”

THE HURTS

Hurts are an English electronic duo from Manchester composed of singer Theo Hutchcraft and synthesiser Adam Anderson.

‘Better Than Love’ is the first single off their debut album “Happiness” which is set for release in September. The music video which premiered on YouTube came at #10 Top Favourite Music Video, #10 Top Rated Music video and 20th most viewed Video in the UK! It was also the most discussed video on Twitter a day after going live, with a heavy volume of tweets.

Watch “Better Than Love” music video now!

DIANA VICKERS

Diana Vickers is known as the rebel in the pack of 2008’s X Factor hopefuls and although she only came fourth on the 5th series of the British talent show, her distinctive voice, endearing live performances and bubbly personality has won over fans.

Her electronic and folk-tinged pop debut album, “Songs From The Tainted Cherry” includes the addictively catchy debut hit single “Once” and the second single “The Boy Who Murdered Love.”

Watch the music video of “Once” now!

“Songs From The Tainted Cherry” album is now available in record stores.

ALEXANDRA BURKE

X Factor fifth season’s ultimate winner Alexandra Burke is one of music’s most exciting pop juggernauts. Her double platinum album ‘Overcome’ has already produced two number one singles and gave her two Brit Award nominations. These accolades have cemented her place as the UK’s prime female recording artist.

‘Overcome’ which is now available in major record stores features the smash hit single ‘All Night Long,’ a euphoric mantra designed to keep pop fans and club goers dancing into the twilight hours and the next single ‘Start Without You,’ a fun and flirty summer track!

Check out her music video for “All Night Long” below. Enjoy.

MIRANDA COSGROVE

The iCARLY tween star Miranda Cosgrove returns with a full-length debut album entitled “Sparks Fly.” She first dabbled in singing for the “iCarly – Music from and Inspired by the Hit TV Show” soundtrack and last year’s animated film “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs”. Now she turns her sites on “Sparks Fly.”

The lead track “Kissin U” which Miranda co-wrote is about a real love interest and it has peaked at #54 on Billboard. Other songs in the album include “Daydream,” a song co-written and originally recorded by Avril Lavigne as a B-Side from her second album Under My Skin, and the song “Disgusting” which was co-written and originally recorded by Ke$ha.

Miranda Cosgrove also stars as one of the voices in the new animated 3-D film Despicable Me.

Here’s the video of “Kissin U” which was directed by Alan Ferguson (Katy Perry, Fallout Boy). It’s a pure pop delight. Enjoy!
