The internet has many uses, and in the music industry, it can be an endless source for discovering unsigned artists.
There’s nothing quite like the rush you get from potentially finding the next big artist. The hard part is knowing where to look!
Fortunately, we’ve got the cheat codes that will help you find the best unsigned artists to show off to your friends.
Despite the pandemic’s devastating effect on music venues over the last two years, artists all over the UK have been able to take control of their musical prowess by singing their own originally written songs for audiences of millions. The place this has been happening most frequently? TikTok.
The rise of TikTok has allowed for unsigned and independent artists to be seen and heard by the masses, with many releasing their own EP and singles independently, fuelled by their success on the app and their dedicated fan base.
