Ones To Watch at Coachella 2015

A handful of Ones To Watch artists got their moment to shine in front of a mainstream crowd at Coachella’s first weekend, which wrapped last night. Here are our highlights.

The New Orleans guitarist and singer swept through the Gobi stage like a hurricane with his bluesy southern rock. His hoarse vocals were most potent when he set aside his guitar and sang accompanied by his drummer and bassist.
