I caught Morgan Saint at SXSW this year and her voice is so mesmerizing I thought I was catching an early Ellie Goulding performance. Morgan Saint is pretty unique sounding as far as pop singers come. Her voice is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and the minimal production behind it allows that voice to shine. When I heard “You”, which features mostly finger-snapping and a simple electronic groove, allowing her voice to breathe on the track. A visual artist that is responsible for all the visuals that accompany her music in every facet, she’s got a keen understanding of what she’s trying to be.

AJR has become an alt-radio favorite as of late thanks to their great skills at writing catchy-as-hell hooks. “Weak” is a song that exploded with its Imagine Dragons meets Matt & Kim-esque boom-thump chorus. Lead singer Jack Met has killer on-stage charisma and even went into the crowd when we caught them at ALT Summer Camp last month. You’ll have two chances to catch them thanks to the Toyota Music Den.
