Earlier this week, music journalist Michael Hann from the Guardian posed a unique question to various musicians: which bands from your hometown never quite achieved success? He received answers from prominent artists like Cornershop, Mogwai, Nabihah Iqbal, and the Vaccines, who shared about groups from cities ranging from Southampton to Gqeberha, South Africa. Readers also joined in the conversation, providing numerous suggestions in the comments section.
We are interested in learning about your favorite artists. These can be bands, solo artists, DJs, or any other musical performers who have not gained widespread recognition, have been unjustly forgotten, or have gone unnoticed. We would love to hear enthusiastic arguments for talented artists and personal stories of how you discovered their music.
