Current Push Artist

Singer-songwriter-guitarist James Bay recently was awarded the 2015 BRIT Awards’ Critics Choice prize, he’s a nominee for MTV UK’s Brand New for 2015, and his single ‘Hold Back the River’ is gaining major buzz. MTV have named him January’s PUSH artist, so you can brag that you knew about him first!

Past Push Artists

MTV scouted some amazing artists to watch in 2014…and since then they’ve gone from up-and-comers to household names! We saw Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds of Summer and Sam Smith blow up into international superstardom. Charli XCX, Kiesza, and Royal Blood made grand debuts on the global stage at the 2014 MTV EMA. Zedd took home a Grammy and a VMA. All through December, watch and relive the first time you discovered these MTV PUSH acts!
Even before Echosmith released 2013 debut album Talking Dreams last fall, the Los Angeles-based alt-pop band—composed of Sierota siblings Jamie (vocals/guitar), Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums)—had begun ascending by leaps and bounds. Their breakout single ‘Cool Kids’ debuted in the U.S.’s Billboard Top 100, and they can lay claim to being featured on the 2013 and 2014 Vans Warped Tour. Stay tuned all month for exclusives including interviews introducing the band, and more!
Royal Blood mixes anguished vocals, ferocious drumming, and bass that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. Yet this wall of sound emerges from just two men: Mike Kerr howls venomous lyrics while Ben Thatcher drums with the controlled aggression of a young Dave Grohl. Now, hot off the August release of their self-titled debut album, Royal Blood have bagged the title of MTV’s October 2014 PUSH artist—and no doubt more accolades are soon to follow! Stay tuned all month for exclusive performances, interviews and more from this duo to watch.
The duo behind Jungle, J and T (otherwise known as Josh and Tom), are sharp and meticulous West Londoners who have racked up major views on YouTube and spread the word far beyond the music hardcore. You’re going to be hearing a lot more about these guys in the months to come — so to help you get to know them better MTV have named Jungle this month’s PUSH act!
