Liam Payne has curated a special new online event featuring a showcase of his favourite rising music stars.
Live streamed this Saturday 31st July at 8pm BST on ticketing platform Veeps, the ‘Here’s To The Future’ show will see performances from the four new artists – from all over the world – as well as a short performance from Liam himself.
All aged between 21-23-years-old, the artists on the line-up are:
Olivia Dean, 21, from London, UK.
Olivia’s soulful pop songs explore themes of independence, self- empowerment and tackling misogyny in the music industry. As a teenager she was accepted into the prestigious BRIT school to develop her songwriting skills and began nurturing her raw, soulful sound.
Marion Jola, 21, from Kupang, Indonesia.
Marion appeared on Indonesian Idol in 2018 finishing the competition in sixth place before continuing on her musical journey. She released her debut single later that year before scooping the AMI award for Best New Artist and MAMA Award for Best New Artist Indonesia.
Sam Macpherson, 23, from New Jersey, USA.
Singer/songwriter Sam grew up in a musical household and used his childhood as inspiration to cultivate his rustic sound. With delicate melodies and a soulful delivery, Sam writes music with attention to detail and honest lyrics.
JESSIA, 21, from Vancouver, Canada.
Canadian JESSIA writes and sings from the heart and was inspired to forge a career in music after growing up with a music teacher mother, learning to play guitar and writing songs in her childhood. She then majored in vocal performance at University before embarking on her career in music.
Liam says: “I’m so excited to curate my first ever show for Veeps and share the stage with these incredible new artists. I can’t wait for you all to hear their amazing music and see them perform live. Saturday night is going to be really special.”
