The evolution of music discovery continues to refine the experience of finding new sounds that resonate with audiences far and wide. While today’s methods have changed exponentially since the days when fans would, on Tuesdays, routinely flock to record stores to get their hands on physical copies of the latest releases, the feeling of discovering a new artist who serendipitously seems to speak directly to your spirit and perfectly soundtracks your experiences remains as invaluable as ever.
As exemplified by REVOLT’s “Untapped” series, a viewer-submitted music video show highlighting emerging artists, those who have an unrelenting drive, undeniable talent and an unwavering commitment to their craft are poised for success. Let’s take a closer look at three rising stars who are making a name for themselves and winning over new supporters with every move they make.
New Orleans native Ambré is brilliantly embodying the renowned creative and musical spirit her vibrant hometown is famous for radiating. Having grown up in foster care, Ambré turned inward, discovering her natural gifts and passion for creating music early on. As she taught herself how to play instruments and learned the art of songwriting, she found her voice, going on to self-release her first single in 2014 on SoundCloud.
Ambré’s enchanting vocals, masterful songwriting and sage production choices garnered the attention of the music industry and curious fans alike. Soon thereafter, she was invited to write for H.E.R.’s debut EP (“Changes,” “U”) and found herself accompanying Kehlani on the “You Should Be Here Tour” in 2015. The years that followed have been filled to the brim with exciting opportunities, including releasing her own music, collaborating with a slew of established acts, touring across the country and even winning a Grammy in 2019 for her work on H.E.R.’s self-titled album. With her eyes on a bright future ahead, Ambré is continuing to make her mark, welcoming the next chapter of her career with the release of 2019’s Pulp EP.
Like many of the rap heroes he’s been studying and drawing inspiration from since childhood, Jahmed credits Hip Hop with saving his life and helping him discover his passion-driven purpose. With his upbringing split between Southern California and Texas, the 24-year-old rapper is steadfast in his mission to be an authentic voice within the culture. In March 2020, Jahmed made a powerful introduction, releasing his debut album, THEBOOFMOBILE, to critical acclaim and hard-earned praise.
Evident throughout the eight-track collection is Jahmed’s spirited delivery and ability to translate his charismatic personality on wax, as well as his perceptive knack for blending southern and West Coast influences with ease. The name of the album is in tribute to the first car Jahmed bought with all of his savings, with the vehicle physically transporting him to Los Angeles to work on his album and metaphorically representing his arrival on the scene. As fans continue to discover Jahmed through his debut album, he is busy preparing for what’s in store next, letting his unwavering work ethic and genuine love for Hip Hop lead the way.
Today’s fast-paced digital landscape will often put pressure on creatives to deliver their work as quickly as possible. For Miami artist Rozet, taking her time to fully hone her vision is beginning to pay off beautifully, and gives her the opportunity to release music on her own terms. After enduring various challenges and healing from a traumatic experience that impacted her youth, this summer will see the release of her first official EP, a seven-track project titled Torso Tales.
Recently, the genre-bending recording artist released the EP’s first single, “Phantom City” featuring Black + Creme, as well as an accompanying music video that she also directed. With a focus on exploring her talents through both a visual and sonic lens, Rozet is curating an ethereal experience for fans to get lost in, further speaking to her destined calling to support others eager to find enlightenment in their journeys.
To learn more about Ambre, Jahmed, Rozet and their fellow peers working tirelessly to represent the future of music, keep it locked to REVOLT’s “Untapped.”
