One of the things I love most about SXSW is the opportunity it provides every year to discover great new artists. The following mix reflects some of the bands and musicians I’ve added to my “watch list” as a result of SXSW 2012. Enjoy!
9. Ben Howard – “Keep Your Head Up”
The fact that The Troubadour added another Ben Howard date in June after the first one sold out makes me downright giddy. This guy’s voice is addictive.
10. Anais Mitchell– “Shepherd”
This song. This voice. I am sold. Anais is playing in Santa Monica at The Broad Stage, Edye Theater April 7th…if anyone is looking to get me a belated birthday present… http://thebroadstage.com/show_info.php?show_id=118
11. Marcus Foster– “Shadows of the City”
I saw Marcus Foster play Maggie Mae’s Rooftop. It was one of the highlights of my week in Austin. This guy comes to your town, don’t miss him!
Listen! Learn! Love!
