Many consider SoundCloud to be the go-to platform for sharing music independently, as well as building connections with fellow artists and fans. Its direct, artist-centric approach has enabled bedroom artists to share their music and find fanbases all over the world, as well as leverage their growth on the platform into yearlong careers.
This series' aim is to showcase the best new music we discover on the platform, music that oftentimes can’t be found anywhere else. In addition, we want to shine the light on successful artists that are either now breaking through on the platform or have used it to attract an active following in the past.
