The year-long program will provide today's hottest emerging talent with a global network to showcase their music, videos, interviews, first looks, new music teasers and more. The first wave of artists includes:

  • Le Coco Ramos, Venezuelan R&B/soul singer, musician and composer. Known for blending Latin, R&B, pop, trap, and folk, she has made a name for herself with empowering singles, earning hundreds of thousands of streams & views.
  • Austin George, Dallas-based up-and-coming singer/rapper. With his first single being released six months ago and already garnering 20+ million streams, Austin is the latest chameleonic DIY popstar-to-be to grow his fanbase through the power of social media and undeniable talent.
  • Lou Ridley, Austin, Texas' own self-proclaimed "Anti-Country'' Country artist. Lou produces, performs, and writes all of her own music, while maintaining an inclusive attitude toward female empowerment, social activism, and the destigmatization of country music.
  • Skeez, Omaha, Nebraska's latest party anthem auteur. Demonstrating major growth, both of his latest singles "Around You" and "I Miss My Homies" are slated to be new undeniable summer soundtracks, with Skeez currently on a sold-out U.S. tour.

As part of the program, the artists will be interviewed by Chelsea Briggs, host of LiveOne's LiveZone Daily and TikTok channel. These interviews along with the talent's music will be featured on the new OneRising Radio station, as well as promoted across LiveOne's platforms including its subsidiary, the award-winning podcast network PodcastOne.
