Austin Mahone
Austin Mahone
At just 17 years old, singer/songwriter Austin Mahone is solidifying his place is pop music. Kicking off the year with an MTV VMA win for “Artist to Watch” and MTV EMA awards for, “Best Push Artist,” and “Artist on the Rise,” Mahone released his new single “Mmm Yeah” featuring Pitbull on iTunes January 26, 2014, which soared to #2 on the iTunes charts. Mahone just wrapped his first, completely sold out, headlining “MTV Artist To Watch” Tour, that kicked off in Miami in February. This was not Austin’s first time on the road, having recently played to sold out arenas last summer with Taylor Swift’s RED tour. Austin is also the brand ambassador for Aquafina's new flavored water line called Flavor Splash. Not only does he have a solid fan base, known as “Mahomies,” but the teen sensation is gaining a legion of loyal fans in the media as well. He’s hot on the press trail, he performing “Mmm Yeah” on Good Morning America during super bowl week this year, and appearing in Details Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Wall Street Journal, The Today Show, Live! With Kelly & Michael, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, E! News, Extra, The Insider, VH1, and MTV. Austin additionally has been featured on covers of J-14, Popstar!, M, Astro Girl, Quiz Fest and Twist. His previous hit singles, “What About Love”, “Banga! Banga!”, "Say You're Just a Friend" and "Say Somethin" have collectively garnered over 175 million views on YouTube and can be heard on top radio stations around the world.
The Vamps
The Vamps
In 2012, guitarist James McVey decided to take the more unusual route of searching for talent on YouTube when he wanted to start a band. First he approached singer/songwriter Bradley Simpson via his own YouTube channel, and after writing a few songs together, the pair recruited drummer Tristan Evans and bassist Connor Ball to complete the line-up. Uploading cover versions to their YouTube channel, the four-piece quickly gained a following, and at the tail-end of 2012, they signed a deal with Mercury Records. Earning a support slot with pop outfit McFly on their 2013 Memory Lane Tour -- a band with whom The Vamps share a similar sound -- the band's fan base quickly swelled and the release of their first self-penned material followed. The debut single, Can We Dance, was first aired via the group's spiritual home, YouTube, and notched up over a million views within the first two weeks. Officially released in October 2013, Can We Dance debuted at number two on the Official U.K. Singles Chart. Their debut album was slated for an early 2014 release.
Fifth Harmony
Fifth Harmony
“I can feel a wave beginning behind this group,” said The X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell before Fifth Harmony performed their version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” on the show last year. The music mogul knows talent and chemistry when he sees it. (This is, after all, the man who assembled One Direction.) Cowell decided that individual contestants Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, and Camila Cabello were too special to let go, so at the end of the show’s Boot Camp week, the five young women became Fifth Harmony. With their show-stopping vocals, undeniable charisma, and genuine sisterly bond, the “fearsome fivesome” (as they became known) endeared themselves to viewers across the country. Fifth Harmony delivered electrifying versions of Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain,” Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Can Happen,” and Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart A Break,” and revealed their personal journeys to audiences week after week.
“I knew from the girls’ first performance at judges’ homes in Miami that we’d done the right thing,” Cowell says. “The chemistry between the Fifth Harmony girls both on and off stage is fantastic. They are really great girls who have become best friends. They’re fun to be around and most importantly, they are all incredibly talented.”
Since The X Factor wrapped last December, the group’s fanbase has grown rapidly. The covers they post on their official YouTube channel (Rihanna’s “Stay,” Ed Sheeran’s “Lego House”) routinely rack up nearly a million views. Not only does Fifth Harmony trend worldwide nearly every week on Twitter, where the girls engage non-stop with their followers, but the group also draws thousands of female fans of all ages, who call themselves “Harmonizers.” “We don’t really think of them as fans,” Normani says. “They’re more like friends who support us.” The strong bond Fifth Harmony has forged with their audience will serve the group well as they begin to show the world what they can do post X Factor, starting with their debut single “Miss Movin’ On,” an epic, empowering pop anthem about letting go and being independent.
“We want our songs to be fun, positive, and inspiring, and for our vocals to shine through,” says Ally. Adds Lauren: “The songs are a direct reflection of us and what we go through. Because we’ve been able to co-write, we’ve been able to personalize our music and make it relatable.” “We want to be collectively unique and yet show our individuality,” says Normani. Adds Camila: “We’re teenage girls hoping teenage girls can listen to the songs and feel like we’re saying what they want to say.”
“Miss Movin’ On” is just a taste of what’s to come on Fifth Harmony’s upcoming debut album, which the girls say will deal with their issues with guys, having fun with friends, and being yourself. They have been working with Autumn Rose (Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd), Lil’ Eddie (Usher, Pink), Tricky Stewart (Beyoncé, Justin Bieber), Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie), and others. Multi-platinum-selling producer/songwriter Julian Bunetta (One Direction, Natasha Bedingfield), who worked with the girls on The X Factor, is executive-producing the album.
“It has been remarkable to watch these five young women from across America go from being strangers to becoming a true group of friends who all care for and believe in each other,” Bunetta says. “I believe pop music is overdue for a girl group that can represent the young ladies of this new generation. Fifth Harmony is that group.”
All the girls agree that the best thing about being in Fifth Harmony is sharing the experience with one another. “I love that we can all be ourselves and have fun with one another,” Ally says. “It’s nice to know that I can turn to my right and see one of my girls. Because with all of craziness of this business, it’s great to not be alone. We are all having a blast doing what we love.”
