5 Artists to Watch in 2021


Now that 2020 is in the rear-view window its time to look at what musical delicacies the new year has to offer. Here are the artists we recon you should keep an eye on in 2021.

The Rumjacks

The boys are most definitely back in town! Our favourite Celtic punks went through a metamorphosis last year, welcoming lead singer Mike Reeves into the band and announcing a brand new album ‘Hestia’. Delivering the single equivalent of a one-two punch with ‘Bullhead’ and ‘Sainted Millions’ in late 2020, fans worldwide are well and truly ready for the album to drop in mid-March.

Pre-order 'Hestia' here:

Dami Im

It was a brilliant return to form for this Eurovision Alum/Australian treasure with her 2020 single ‘Paper Dragon’. The bright, bombastic tune set the tone for expected new music coming this year. Queenslanders were treated to a bit of live Dami in 2020 with New South Wales’ turn coming this March, fingers are being crossed that live shows will reveal a taste of what’s to come for this talented singer songwriter.

Andrew Swift

If there was ever a man who knew how to turn lemons into lemonade, it’s Andrew Swift. Despite all the set-backs 2020 threw at musicians (read: all of them) Andrew managed to be the breakout star of the Australian country scene. He chalked up two singles that dominated country charts and charmed audiences across Australia. Andrew will make his first splash in 2021 hosting the 49th annual Golden Guitar awards on January 23rd.

Emily Wurramara

Emily’s ultra smooth single ‘Cruisin’ eased us into Summer 2020 on the sounds of her ever-beautiful voice. Add in a heartfelt music video featuring her nearest and dearest and you’ve got Wurramara fans fanging for what she’s bringing to the table in 2021. A sneaky Instagram pic with PNAU’s Nick Littlemore that teased the creation of “sweet sounds” means that whatever Em does this year…it’s gonna be a banger.

The Soul Movers

The hardest working soul band in Australia has no plans of slowing down in 2020. Following on from the deliciously dark ‘Splinter’ and subsequent single ‘Strange Love’, Lizzie Mack and her pack of movers have a few surprises in store before forthcoming album ‘Evolution’ drops in April. Considering the band’s 2020 included a full on '80s style aerobics session with all the OG Wiggles, nothing is off the table in 2021.
