With 2020 on the horizon, you’re probably thinking back to all the music you’ve listened to this past year. We know we are! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the male pop artists we think are must-listens – definitely artists you want to be on the lookout for in the coming year.

LX Mason

LX Mason returned earlier after a considerable break with his single ‘Fantastic‘ . We’re certain his musical journey will reach new heights in 2020, and you’ll want to have your ears open for it.

The Sydney singer has ended the year on a high note with the release of his latest single, ‘Scared to Let Go.’ Take a listen and you won’t want to stop. (Trigger warning, this track has all the feels)

Jack Walton

Have you listened to Jack Walton yet? If you haven’t, don’t worry – you still have a moment to get familiar with his music in time for his 2020 tour.

In 2019, he released his debut album, Stolen Hearts & Stolen Cars, featuring single ‘We are Golden’, which we had the pleasure of discussing and next year is sure to be just as monumental.

Devin Kennedy

It might be winter time right now, but we’re dreaming of sunny days in California when we listen to Devin Kennedy’s music, and honestly, it doesn’t get any better.

The pop hearthrob has had a big year, culminating with the release of the EP You & Me, That’s EnoughThe future is bright for Devin Kennedy, and we might never get enough of him.

Sam Sun

Sam Sun’s brand of indie-pop music is something we can definitely get behind – and will continue to do so in 2020.

The singer-songwriter crafts breezy, airy beats, combined with elements of indie pop and electronic music, a unique fusion. Listen to ‘It Will Get Better’ and be inspired.

Dom McAllister

What can we say about Dom McAllister? This London native puts a soulful twist on traditional pop music, and it’s no wonder he’s had an amazing 2019. He released an Single Camouflage, and headlined a sold-out show at London’s Waiting Room. Talk about big! There’s no doubt that Dom McAllister will be a force to be reckoned with in 2020, as showcased on his latest single ‘Movements’:

Lee Brown

Don’t take Lee Brown’s Instagram bio seriously. It might say he doesn’t know what’s going on 97% of the time, but he certainly knows how to make a song that the people love.

His music is infectious, and his latest single is no different. Check out ‘Slow’ – we guarantee you’ll be humming along in no time.


Sidiq finds inspiration across a variety of genres, from ’60s soul all the way up to contemporary pop. That influence is apparent in his singles, which are about love and life.

2019 has proved to be a big year for Sidiq: he has entered a new era, called “8een,” all about new beginnings and experiences. One of those experiences? The release of his latest track, ‘Fix It.’


WOLVES is a band that describes themselves as being “[l]ike QUEEN…on acid,” and if that doesn’t intrigue you, we don’t know what will.

The LA-based duo makes what they call “Surf Trap,” blending the harmonies of the Beach Boys with booming bass. 2019 marked new music for Wolves, including their creative collaboration with KAIRO, an EP titled Dynamic and the release of the Say The Word EP:


Who doesn’t love alt-pop? Luckily, Gorran is creating his own version of this popular genre, and we’re loving it. Simply put he’s an artist who makes music that moves you.

Gorran is full of potential, so it’s hard not to be excited for what 2020 holds for him. Listen to ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore,’ and you’ll be excited too.

Daniel Furlong

Daniel Furlong only began releasing his original music in 2019, so it comes as no surprise that we wait eagerly to see what 2020 has in store.

The Irish singer-songwriter is definitely an artist you want keep your ears open for.

His music is emotional, making it especially poignant for listeners. His most recent single ‘Safe’ is the perfect example of this.
