SiriusXM has revealed its annual "Future Five" list of new artists that the satellite radio giant believes will breakthrough in 2019, plus offers an update on its "Class of 2018" success stories.
This year's "Future Five" includes Alec Benjamin, Ice Nine Kills, Dominic Fike, Joyner Lucas and Ryan Hurd. All five of last year's "Future" artists, Alice Merton, Morgan Evans, Two Feet, Rich The Kid and Sofi Tukker, made an impact over the course of the year and are included in the "Class of 2018."
“2018 shaped up to be another great year in music discovery for SiriusXM," said Steve Blatter, senior vp and general manager, music programming, SiriusXM. "We were thrilled to see all of our 'Future Five for 2018' selections graduate to our 'Class of 2018.’ As we move into 2019, our team continues to strive to bring our subscribers even more new music from a wide range of developing artists across all genres."
