On the next installment of the Artist Spotlight Series, New Music Seminar is featuring artists submitted by our partner – Caroline. A notable selection of artists you are already familiar with and should be paying extra attention to because they are releasing new music. All are successful in their own right and are a great representation of Caroline’s impressive roster. Take a listen below…
Formed in 2009, the Athens, AL based quartet, fronted by lead powerhouse, Brittany Howard burst onto the scene with their 3X Grammy-nominated debut “Boys & Girls.” In 2015, the band have returned with their critically-acclaimed chart-topping second album, “Sound & Color.”
R&B singer and actor, Tyrese Gibson began his musical career at the age of 14. The star of the “Fast & Furious” franchise has over the course 5 albums established himself as one of the biggest voices in modern R&B, amassing multiple chart-topping singles. This summer, Tyrese will be releasing his new album, “Black Rose,” which will be preceded by the first single, “Shame.”
Since exploding onto the hip hop scene in 2003, 50 Cent has been rewriting the history books every year. What began as music chart dominance for the rap music phenomenon 50 Cent, has quickly transformed to success in corporate America as a multi-tiered business mogul to be reckoned with. In 2014, he unveiled “Animal Ambition,” his first release under his new deal with Caroline. The album was a critical and commercial success and set the stage for his forthcoming release later this year.
Five Finger Death Punch
One of the most successful metal/hard rock acts since they burst onto the scene in 2007, the Las Vegas-based quintet has built up a growing fanbase with each record.
