Wednesday New Artist Discovery #Happens

May 1st, 2024

Happy Wednesday! Welcome to May! Your Alternative New Artist Discovery Of The Week is StrateJacket.

The Bay Area 3-piece are on Edgeout Records and managed by In De Goot. Today you get VIP Access to StateJacket lead singer Jackson Roemers to get to know the band and their lead single “Bad Start” that is starting to pick up adds. 

For the second week in a row, Pearl Jam “Wreckage” picks up #1 Most Added at Alternative. Congrats to Republic’s Amanda Dobbins & team!

Bummed to hear that Audacy Director Of Imaging And Sound Design Jake Kaplan got caught up in the company layoffs last week. Exciting news for former longtime KROQ/Los Angeles on-air personality Richard Blade, who is among the just announced nominees for the Radio Hall Of Fame 2024. I have more details in The Latest Alternative News.
