Welcome to Artists of the Week: LÜM’s Got Talent Edition
A couple of weeks ago, we held the second annual “LÜM’s Got Talent” competition. The task was simple: Create and share a video that showcases your talent! Whether the talent was dancing, singing, producing, etc., all submissions were welcomed.
To make it even more fun, two of the previous Artists of the Week – Michael Rashad and Rosa Nice – were responsible for judging the competition and passing on the torch to the next four Artists of the Week based on who had the best submissions.
Read on to see who made the cut!
21-year-old ANCAT hails from Pottstown, Pennsylvania. With a diverse range sure to catch your ear, the two main genres that encompass his music are a blend of Pop-Rock and Hip-Hop.
ANTCAT gives credit to fellow independent artist Dre Wave$ for influencing him as he’s watched Dre successfully grow himself and his brand.
Like many independent artists who are able to work quickly to produce consistent, quality music, ANTCAT has taken the time to learn how to engineer his own music. He adds that continuing to develop this skill has significantly helped his own independent path.
