12 Sep Australian artists worth checking out at CMJ 2015 in New York

Australia will be sending a bunch of artists to New York in October to showcase our next wave of new music.

In my opinion CMJ is more important for artists than SXSW. There’s less oversaturation and more time between shows to make industry contacts, and it’s also after the busy summer season in the States, meaning their labels have more time to sign up new artists to work with.

I will be there tweeting, recapping and posting Instagram photos of our artists, but also of the artists we predict or hope will make tours down under in the near future.

If you’re lucky enough to be in New York, here’s my list of Australian artists playing shows that will definitely be worth checking out. Click for more info about where and when you can see them:
