On Tuesday night, Billboard's Industry Nights Showcase kicked off Grammy Week in West Hollywood with an eclectic roster of new and rising talent for a series that will run through Friday leading up to Sunday's ceremony. The early evening event boasted the likes of Los Angeles-based singer Maggie Lindemann, New Zealand pop rock group Broods, Fifth Harmony breakout singer Dinah Jane and electro-pop rock band A R I Z O N A, set against a backdrop of incomparable panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills.
Lindemann kicked off the night with a set that touched on her pop roots before taking a swift turn into new territory as the young singer took up the mantle of frontwoman to a full band, including trumpet accompaniment and her own turns on lead guitar. After channeling Gwen Stefani during an exhilarating cover of No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs,” Lindemann broke things down to a light acoustic set with her 2018 single “Would I” and an impassioned cover of Stereophonics’ “Maybe Tomorrow” that synced up perfectly with the golden hour looming outside. She ended the set with an exciting tease of what’s to come on the upcoming alt-friendly track “Friends Go,” capping a set full of surprises that signals Lindemann’s growing skill set as a musician and performer.
