Since she made her debut on the British charts in 2013 with a deconstruction of Rufus & Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody,” London-born singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson has become a muse to a host of DJs and EDM producers. Felix Jaehn was so inspired by her version of the classic R&B hit that he created a remix, which climbed charts internationally reaching number one in many countries and amassing nearly 400M streams world-wide, resulting in one of the biggest hits of 2015. Jaehn has called her “a talented and rising superstar.” Thompson’s crystalline vocals have also captured the attention of other stars such as Avicii, Naughty Boy, Passenger, Meghan Trainor and Hozier. In 2014, Thompson was also featured on “Sun Goes Down” from Robin Schulz which hit number one in over 20 countries. Jasmine is positioned to be the next UK superstar following the footsteps of many of her idols, including Ed Sheeran, Adele, and Sam Smith.
Brother – sister duo XYLØ is a Southern California indie pop group comprised of producer/drummer/songwriter Chase Duddy (31) and his younger sister, vocalist/songwriter Paige Duddy (21). Chase and Paige were raised in a musical family; notably, their grandfather Joe Porcaro, a prominent jazz drummer and studio percussionist. Perhaps growing up in this environment led Chase and Paige to share a musical bond, although their 10 year age difference initially created a difficult barrier both personally and musically. Mixing melodic, dark, lustful vocals with an atmospheric blend of indie rock, electronica, and dirty hip-hop beats, XYLØ has drawn early comparisons to the likes of Lorde and Lana Del Rey. Their songs have critical praise from Zane Lowe, Complex Magazine, LA Weekly and The Guardian. At the end of 2015, XYLØ finally decided to sign a major label deal with Sony’s Disruptor Records. Their debut EP, titled America, was released on February 26, 2016. With 6 songs released and 11 million streams on Spotify it’s safe to say you can expect big things from XYLØ in 2016.
