Musicians you should be following on social media right now
John Legend - YouTube

There are two types of "social" everyone should be all about right now: social distancing and social media. Right now, the two really go (freshly washed) hand in (freshly washed) hand.

The recent state of the world has left many shows, tours, and festivals postponed or canceled. As such, many artists and musicians have leaned into social media to stay connected with their fans during these trying times.

Here's a solid list of artists who are a must follow if you are in need of live music, fun entertainment, and just overall quality content -- and let's be honest, right now we all need that. 

Want more music and entertainment fun to pass the time? We've got you covered right here.

Hey Everyone,⁣ ⁣ I know you are all really freaked out right now. I am too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us all incredibly isolated.⁣ ⁣ But because we’re all going through this nightmare together we are quite literally NOT alone. Our lives and stories are all linked, maybe more now than they have ever been.⁣ ⁣ Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honor you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music. Some of you have traveled great distances and/or shelled out large sums of money to see us play and that has never been lost on me. So in this crazy and unprecedented time, I’d like to return the favor by coming to YOU.⁣ ⁣ For the next few weeks I will be playing songs everyday from my home studio. We will be streaming on YouTube / Facebook at 4pm PST daily – link in bio. We’re still working out the details but I’m hoping to take some requests and maybe even have a guest or two stop by digitally. The first show will be tomorrow. It will assuredly be a little wonky and glitchy but we’re gonna do our best.⁣ ⁣ See You Tomorrow.⁣ ⁣ xo⁣ ⁣ Ben

Garth Brooks

It’s not just pop and indie artists hooking us up on social media. Garth Brooks is going solo for the next episode of his show “Inside Studio G.” The newest episode premieres on Facebook on Monday March 23rd. Make sure to tune in!


L Devine

L Devine’s song “Naked Alone” has been blasting out of our speakers for weeks. Now that we’re quite literally alone, L Devine has a great new tour for us. She unfortunately had to cancel her Spring shows so now she’s going on a “URL Tour” where she plays a live stream on a different platform every night.
