Here comes one of our favorite parts of the beginning of the week! It’s the time when we share a bunch of our favorite artists and give you a list of reasons why you should also obsess over them! It’s a fun little game! At least we think it’s fun.
We are running out of cool ways to introduce this column! Maybe we’ll do it in Spanish or French! Comment on what languages we should start introducing Rising Star Roundup in! (See how we kinda did a smooth introduction? We’re so good at this. It’s like we should do it for a living!)
Holly is back, both with new music and on Rising Star Roundup! This means that you guys should already have an idea about how much we love her! It’s obvious if we keep telling you to give her a stream! She just released ‘Can You Afford To Lose Me?’ and the answer is no. You can’t afford to lose her! She’s just too perfect!
Playing my songs on tour, seeing them out in the world, and how they’ve affected people differently has made me want to give them another life so much so that I’ve put them together in the order I would listen to them in now: a fresh evolution of my first two EPs.

This next artist has been on our minds for a while, and we’re so excited to finally share him with you all! Jei-Rynn is blessing us with his beautiful songwriting and overall talents in music, with his debut EP overreacting. Before you ask, no, we don’t think we’re overreacting about how much we love this EP. If anything, we’re underreacting!
Jei-Rynn approaches his musical craft like an acclaimed writer with his memoirs — deeply personal, yet compelling for all.

Do you know something we love and don’t talk about enough? A woman producing her own tracks! Terez recently released ‘luv2h8’ and stunned us by being in the 2.1% of women producers to date! How iconic is that!? We think you should stream ‘luv2h8’ for two reasons: the message is beautiful, and we love women in power!
Being a teenager during the time of social media and cyberbullying can be extremely difficult, and we think Terez portrays that beautifully in ‘luv2h8!’ Rising Star Roundup is made for the aspiring artists that deserve to be heard, and Terez is definitely one of them.

We love an artist that isn’t afraid to keep pushing out content! (Unless it’s Joshua Bassett, he’s on timeout for the fact that he’s going faster than we can keep track!) Lolo released her sophomore album PLAYGIRL, and now we’ve got a music video for ‘Crazy Sexy Dream Girl!’ How can we even cope with this talent?
I didn’t overthink the lyric. ‘They never want to keep it open. Take every part of me.’ Because in relationships, I’m always like, ‘Can we just keep this open?’ But guys want to like, have you. It’s the manic pixie dream girl, but my version of it

We’ve decided that we love Canada, and Rachel Bobbitt is one of the reasons why! This Toronto-based icon released her EP, The Ceiling Could Collapse, and we’re jumping in true fangirl fashion! We are now Rachel’s besties, and before you ask, yes, we do make the rules. Rising Star Roundup means we call the shots!
A distillation of the enormous and unutterable, Rachel Bobbitt’s ‘More’ is an unflinching rumination on the uterus-bearing experience.
