Welcome to The Ones To Watch Insider, a monthly round-up that brings you closer to Music’s next big thing.
In January’s inaugural edition, we're bringing you Skype’s first ever music podcast, a new live version of a track by The Devil Makes Three, plus an early look at what February has in store.
Ones To Watch Podcast
In our very first monthly podcast, we join The Devil Makes Three over Skype to talk everything from their deep musical roots to their surprising secret to rock 'n' roll success. As well as hearing their tracks, we introduce you to other Ones To Watch acts including Echosmith, De Lux, and Until The Ribbon Breaks, plus a look at next month’s featured artist, KONGOS. Start listening and you could discover your new favorite band.
One Take with The Devil Makes Three
Voted for by you, "Hand Back Down" didn't just get a fresh lick of paint but a full audio makeover. Relying on nothing but their hands, lungs and stringed instruments, the band produced a bare-bones rendition that feels like it's being played right in front of you. Check it out!
One On One with the band
We let you ask anything you wanted to The Devil Makes Three with a Skype video message, and let the band answer any way they wanted. Which explains the unusual responses from a frog, dolphin, and hopefully the flying dinosaur. Take a look.
Win signed goodies from The Devil Makes Three
All January, we've been bringing you closer to The Devil Makes Three. So to say thanks, the band is giving away a load of signed merchandise and they want you to win. To enter for your chance, fire up Skype and add CloserWithSkype as a contact before February 6th, 2015.
Upcoming tour dates

Get involved in February
January has come to a close, but February is just warming up with our new headline act, KONGOS and lots more music to look out for. To
get involved with this month's shenanigans, why not start by asking KONGOS a question? It's as easy as sending it as a Skype instant message to CloserWithSkype.
So that's January all wrapped up. Remember to keep returning to check out all the latest goings-on and to get even closer to the Ones To Watch.
