Artists To Watch In 2019



hey what's going on Pete Francis for blues-rock review and in this video we're talking artists to watch in 2019 and let's kick things off with Chris tone King fish Ingram and perhaps nobody in the blues in blues rock world has generated more buzz over the course of the year than kingfish he released his debut album titled king fish this year on Alligator Records and it's gotten rave reviews including from us and really this is very well deserved a lot of times when someone is billed as the next big thing most of the time it's PR spin but with king fish that is not the case this guy is the real deal he's been mentored by Buddy Guy is a ridiculous it's hard player and not only that his vocals are well beyond his years we got a chance to catch him at the Dallas International Guitar Festival and this festival featured some heavy hitters some of the best guitar players in the world and king fish was white up there with any of them absolutely incredible guitar player and definitely worth the hype Arielle Posen is another artists worth checking out in 2019 and this is a guy that really has grabbed our attention this year with his debut album how long and REO posin is probably best known for his work with the brothers Lander at the Juno award-winning band from Canada but now he released his own solo album this year and it's really a great album he's one of those triple threat guys fantastic guitar player really strong songwriter and a great vocalist as well he's going to draw a lot of comparisons to John Mayer he definitely has a similar sound and you can tell that John Mayer's a big influence on him but once again triple threat guy he's the real deal and definitely one of the top artists we've discovered in 2019 Michael Lee is another artist to watch in 2019 and he hails from Fort Worth Texas and Michael Lee is probably best known for his performance on the TV show The Voice he did a cover of BB kings thrill is gone and that video went over 6 million views on YouTube now when you think about TV shows like The Voice you're probably not thinking blues or blues or rock but don't let that fool you Michael Lee is a great blues rock artist very talented guitar player his style really reminds me of Jonny Lang especially in the vocals he's got kind of that raw raspy soulful quality his vocals that really stand out so if you're looking for an artist to watch in 2019 definitely check out Michael Lee Caleb Johnson is best known for winning season 13 of American Idol but don't let that fool you he is not a flavor of the month type of artist now he released an album shortly after winning American Idol but that was not really the type of album he wanted to release fast forward to this year 2019 he releases born from southern ground it's one of the best rock-and-roll albums you will hear this year he also has a track on this album co-written by Jay Buchanan of rivals sons called solid gold and it really showcases his killer vocals and he is a very strong songwriter as well this is just a great album with a classic feel so definitely check out Caleb Johnson who are some other artists to watch in 2019 we'd love to hear from you guys so feel free to leave your comments down in the comment section below and please hit that subscribe button we've got more videos on the way I'm Pete Francis thanks for watching
