SoundCloud is making room for up-and-coming artists with a new weekly series on Clubhouse hosted by Jasmine Solano. The voice-only live events will spotlight the “First on SoundCloud” 2021 lineup, which includes Charmaine, Ela Minus, Kid Quill, Lourdiz, Otis Kane, Payday, Sofia Mills and SoFaygo.

In line with First of SoundCloud’s accelerator program, the aforementioned artists will invite collaborators, colleagues and fans to take part in a live conversation that delves deeper into their artistic identity each week. The digital event will also focus on connecting each artist with industry leaders, entrepreneurs, influencers and other musicians through career-driven conversation.

Solano will interview each selected artist, highlighting their beginnings in music, career highs and lows, and their future in the industry. Following the live event, the full conversation will be available for playback on each artist’s SoundCloud profile.

“I’m so excited to connect live with these First on SoundCloud artists, who represent such a diverse range of backgrounds, identities, and sounds,” said Jasmine Solano in a statement. “I’m really looking forward to the amazing conversations and, as a fan myself, getting to know them better.”

“I know firsthand as an artist the importance of sharing your story authentically,” she continued. “That’s what I will aim to bring forward in this — real, raw conversations that give fans a true picture of each artist and the journey it took for them to arrive where they’re at now.”
