As the 2016 year comes to an end, a new legion of artist are pushing to the front with singles and EPs that seem promising going into the new year. With legend after legend being taken away, we must give attention to the new voices of the generation. The way music is consumed today it is easy to miss all the amazing talent actively werking. Lucky you have programs like Cookies and Lemonade which keep you updated on the new records coming out! I have compiled a list of 10 artist you should put an asterisk beside for 2017.
