Our artists Surf Mesa & Pa Salieu feature in ‘Vevo Artists To Watch 2021’
Parul Chokshi, Senior Director, Talent Booking, said: “Surf Mesa’s electro-pop songs are not only crazy catchy, they evoke a feeling, a mood that you don’t soon forget.
“We’re especially excited to share these performances, as Surf Mesa has delivered a stunningly sultry version of his hit song ily (i love you baby) and the ethereal Somewhere with Gus Dapperton’s reverie-inducing vocals.”
Surf Mesa added: “I’m incredibly grateful to be a Vevo DSCVR Artist to Watch this year – it’s a program full of incredible alumni and to be counted among them is a huge achievement for me.
“What made it extra-special is that this performance was the first time I was able to play my songs live since the pandemic began. I felt the energy from the Vevo staff on set and thank them for their work in bringing the showcase to life.”
Jodeci Rampasard, Junior Manager of Music & Talent, said: “With an impeccable flow and captivating bars.
“Pa Salieu has played the frontline position throughout 2020.
“Delivering energy packed anthems, like My Family and slick gritty melodies like Betty.
“I couldn’t think of an artist to watch list without him. He’s a great representation of a multi-dimensional artist and we’re super excited to see what the future holds.”
Pa Salieu added: “To be selected as a VEVO artist is a very motivating position to be in, last year I wouldn’t have thought I’d have a channel of my own let alone being part of the channel itself.
“No Cap, I was seeing my favourite artists on the channel, now I’m being selected… I find it crazy! I’m very appreciative, I can’t even speak of my gratitude – it means a lot to me.
“I’m going to have to take the opportunity with all my energy.”
