Emerging Artist

Dutch pop group Chef’Special makes a #38 Debut this week as their U.S. exposure grows via their slot before Mutemath as openers for fellow Ramen-Fueled rockers twenty one pilots’ Emotional Roadshow summer tour. Their single, In Your Arms, is getting some spins at Triple A and Alternative Radio and might just resonate with fans of 7 Years from fellow northern Europeans, Danish act Lukas Graham. Their song Peculiar is mega-fun and brings the happy time vibes…also totally worth checking out.

Seeing as the band has 8 years, 2 albums, and 3 EPs under their belt as they begin to take on America, and have the backing of a powerhouse label team, it will be no surprise to see them graduate to the next level before too long.
