MSG Up & Coming showcases some of the best new bands and artists lighting up the grassroots music scene – and each month, we curate a playlist featuring some amazing new talent.

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 Chicago. Through MSG Up & Coming, we’re supporting the future of London’s vibrant music scene and looking for the stars of tomorrow.

April’s Up and Coming playlist has been curated by singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Navina. An East London local and resident artist at local hotspot the Roundhouse, Navina has curated a playlist featuring a whole host of the exciting emerging talent lighting up East London’s music scene.

March’s Playlist

March’s Up and Coming playlist was curated by alternative R&B singer-songwriter Ayeisha Raquel. Born and raised in East London, Ayeisha’s playlist featured some of her favourite emerging stars from across the capital – while in her own music she incorporates details about her personal growth, mental health and relationships through self-reflection, and occasionally, witty honesty.
