“Hi kids, do you like violence? Wanna see me stick Nine Inch Nails through each one of my eyelids?” Okay sorry, I just always wanted to open a post like that. Welcome all to the 2015 Top 5 New Artists. The main reason why I decided to do this was to give other artists a chance to be heard. Every day on my Twitter and Facebook feed, I see the same artists being promoted. Now don’t get me wrong, that’s a great thing. But like the saying goes, ‘Variety is the spice of life.’ So here I am to spice up your life (word to the Spice Girls). I will be posting about five different and very talented artists that I’m sure you the readers will love.
Now how the artists were chosen was quite simple. I gave you the reader a chance to nominate an artist you feel is worthy of a post. After all of the names were complied, I chose ten names that I have never seen before. From those ten names, I checked out their work. To be placed in the Top 5, the artists had to show: consistency, likeability, activeness, originality, and versatility. Basically is the artist worth our time? Not only that but are they new to the site?
From December 1st through December 5th, I will be posting one new artist a day for five days. I’ll introduce you to the artist and their work. Trust me when I type that you don’t want to miss it. So congrats to the nominees and the ones who were chosen. Continue to do what you love, as we continue to appreciate you for it. -Pooh Bailey
