SXSW 2014: Musicians to Watch

As those of us in the Northeast region of the US shoveled out from snow this winter, we dreamed of Austin in March! The Buzz About is thrilled to be a part of another SXSW Festival. 2014 brings lots of exciting film, technology, musicians, and loads of people to the incredible city of Austin, Texas. We confess our excitement at catching Kendrick Lamar and sneaking a peak at Lady Gaga as they headline major events, but we wanted to share who we are most looking forward to seeing perform, and who we think you should know or may know soon after the festival ends.

Betty Who

Australian native, we adore everything about Betty Who. Her vocals, live performances, and genuine love and energy for her work is refreshing.

Incan Abraham

"World infused psychedelic pop" write Incan Abraham to describe their sound. It is intricate sound, but so easy on the ear.
