Calboy, Brooke Eden among 5 Artists You Need to Know

Music is one of the most inspirational influences we have today. There is a massive amount of new music being put out every day, especially with the current pandemic happening. People are constantly asking me what new songs they should explore and add to their playlists. I find that my musical influences are constantly evolving. Here are five artists you need to know. Each of them have their own style, sound and persona.


Chicago native and hip hop young buck Calboy is a fresh face and sound for the hip hop world. He may be only 21 years old but his lyrics depict pain, maturity and survival. His sound is highly melodic. Calboy has worked with artists such as Polo G and the late King Von. He is likable, highly addictive and polished in his craft. Although he is slightly underrated, he won’t be for long.

Brooke Eden

Country music artist and Florida native Brooke Eden is not a household name and it’s rather depressing. She is beautiful, hard working and insanely talented. Eden, who just came out as gay and has been happily showing off her partner Hilary, has gotten an immense amount of support for her decision to finally broadcast her relationship to the world. Her new song “Sunroof” is up beat and lively. It’s a perfect summer anthem. If you want to support females in country music, Brooke is the perfect artist to give some love.
