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.

MSG Up & Coming Artist of the Month

MSG Up & Coming playlists are reviewed by one of a panel of music industry experts we’ve assembled to select an Artist of the Month.

November’s playlist will be judged by Glen Rowe who is the former Tour Director for international superstars Muse. Glen spent 18 years on the road with the band, helping to organise innovative live spectacles which earned Muse’s reputation for revolutionising the live music experience.

As well as three iconic performances at Glastonbury, Glen orchestrated and executed multiple worldwide tours including the pioneering ‘Drones’ tour which saw cutting-edge technology raise the bar for live performance.

After nearly two decades on the road, Glen decided to launch the NEKO Trust charity with the mission to support the next generation of music artists by creating a network of small venues for bands starting out in the industry.

About Last Month’s Playlist

October’s playlist was judged by Fiona Grace McDougal, one of the music industry’s leading vocal coaches. Fiona was struck by the quality of the vocals and production of the songs on last month’s playlist but chose South London singer Cat Burns as October’s Artist of the Month because of her impressive voice and the honesty of the lyrics on her track ‘Sober’.
