Mainstream radio has a consistent rotation of the same artists and songs. Although we all love a hit record, let’s be honest – when you hear the same tune 10 times in a row, it can get really boring. So how can you find that next rising star and a new summer jam? Skype.

Skype is on a mission to help create more intimate experiences between fans and artists on the cusp of stardom. The Ones to Watch program promotes up and coming talent spanning multiple genres. Fans now have unprecedented access to hits from emerging artists before they hit the airwaves. You can even participate in group chats and get your questions answered by the artists themselves via video. How cool is that? 

Recently featured artists include Kid Ink, a rapper from Los Angeles, California; Cherub, an electro-pop group from Nashville, Tennessee; and Eric Hutchinson, a singer/songwriter from Washington, D.C. Dozens more artists are available on the site. You can also catch many of your favorites in a town near you.
