Portsmouth Solo Artists You Must Hear This Week – Part Two!

I didn’t expect the response I got to the original post about Portsmouth solo artists you can’t miss that I posted last month and within an hour of posting it, I also realised how many people I’d wrongly missed off the list! So here is part two! A bonus edition consisting of 6 more Portsmouth based solo musicians you shouldn’t be missing out on. Enjoy!

    Says who? Where’s the diversity?

      We’re an indie/alternative music blog and this is a list of 16 Portsmouth based solo artists that I’ve personally enjoyed listening to/seeing live. This was never intended to be a “be all and end all list” and it’s based around artists who fit the styles of music we cover.

      If you’d like to suggest anyone else/have any suggestions on what Portsmouth solo artists I can add to make the list more diverse, then I’m all ears! I’m always open to hearing new music 🙂
