The Best New Artists Of 2022
Who are the hottest new music artists of 2022? With another year comes fresh talent across diverse genres and geographical backgrounds. Many of today's newest singers achieved their first Billboard Hot 100 hit single before the age of 20, while other musicians proudly embrace their indie underground status. From on-the-rise Gen-Z superstars The Kid LAROI and Holly Humberstone to the 2021 BRIT Awards Best New Artist winner Arlo Parks, 2022's current industry roster only continues to grow as young artists discover their sound and develop fanbases worldwide. Billie Eilish's Grammy-winning producer (and older brother) FINNEAS recently released his first solo LP Optimist; and black country singers Mickey Guyton, Jimmie Allen, BRELAND, and Amythyst Kiah are redefining the world of country music through their brilliant songwriting and unique artistry.
