MSG Up & Coming showcases some of London’s best grassroots music artists and the venues they are performing in around the capital. Each month we curate a playlist of the artists who are playing some of London’s hottest gigs and let you know where you can watch them.

A host of British music icons have started their careers playing grassroots venues in London, before eventually playing to huge crowds at MSG’s venues in New York and LA. Through MSG Up & Coming, we’re supporting the future of London’s vibrant music scene and looking for the stars of tomorrow.

July’s playlist

July’s Artist of the Month was London-based singer-songwriter Caitlyn Scarlett. Our MSG Up & Coming judging panel loved the edgy pop sound and clever lyrics on her track ‘Ornaments’. With some high profile collaborations and several sold-out shows, Caitlyn Scarlett is definitely an artist on the up.
