Congratulations to the 2020 KGUP Artists of the Year

At the start of the year, HR Cole, CEO and Founder of inDspotlight Television and Mikey Jayy, Program Director and Founder of KGUP FM Emerge Radio discussed having a festival over the Summer featuring all the top emerging artists, including hosting an Awards event in 2020, but Covid-19 upended all our ideas. We even thought of having an online event, but without a live audience, all these ideas felt flat and uninspiring, so we created a single category to recognize the Top 8 most recognizable emerging local music artists in the industry and named it the

2020 KGUP Artists of the Year award!


These 8 finalists were based on a number of factors: 


1. Artist's music overall has to be SPECTACULAR

2. Artist has to be an exceptional songwriter and story teller 

3. Artist had to have at least 3 songs that exemplified both 1 and 2

4. Artist has at least 1 music video that is outstanding in production and visual appeal 

5. Artist must have gone through a revelation or had overcome a life changing event

6. Artist needs to acknowledge our existence (at bare minimum, the Artist needed to say, "Thank you" when getting featured on our social media or regrammed/shared our story from a featured post, accepted our invitation to be interviewed, or had exchanged some form of dialogue to and from KGUP
