For awhile now, I've co-run a group at last.fm focused on discovering up and coming artists, so I thought it's about time I shared it with all of you.
Basically, any of our 3052 members can suggest an artist to our group and we keep tabs on them for a little while and then eventually add them to our connections list if we see fit. When the artist reaches 75,000 listeners or fails to come up with the goods they are then bumped from the group.
The featured artists below are selected entirely by statistics from our connections list.
Feel free to check out our group at last.fm - Next Big Things.
