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.

November’s Playlist

November’s Artist of the Month was London-born artist and rapper Jelani Blackman. Our MSG Up & Coming judging panel loved Blackman’s distinctive vocals and the clever lyrics on his track “Average Joe”. The hypnotic beat of his track made Jelani Blackman stand out on this month’s playlist.
