21 Virginia Artists to Watch in 2021

Pharrell Holding Up VA Sign

Virginia is home to some of the most talented musicians of the past and present. Creatives like The Neptunes, Timbaland, The Clipse, and even Teddy Riley set the stage for many musicians to shine in The Commonwealth. Pharrell wasn’t lying when he said there must be something in the water. 2020 was a roller coaster of a year that neither Busch Gardens nor King’s Dominion could have prepared us for. Nonetheless, some amazing art came out of the state in each of the different sub-regions.

I am capping this list at 21 artists for obvious reasons. However, there are many more that I admire in VA. This list is in no particular order and will feature a track I enjoy from each artist. My list features some artists who are just getting started and some who have received deals from the top labels. I’m Virginia first, second, third, and I look forward to bringing as many VA artists to shine. Plenty of creatives in the state have made some bangers in the year. This list is my projection of the 21 creatives that will make something that VA should get behind. (In no particular order)

Without further wait, check out my 21 Virginia artists to watch in 2021 below.
