It doesn’t really matter if you don’t understand Thai or not; these Thai musicians are ones to watch.
It is way easier to start in the music industry with streaming services like Spotify. Not only are you able to easily stream the music available and create playlists. You can also put out your own music with ease. Spotify has changed the music industry. Artists don’t have to rely on big records any longer. This is why there is a rise in independent musicians.
The increase in accessibility into this industry welcomes an increasing amount of artists who are putting out music. People with talent are being discovered everywhere, even on TikTok. Here are some of our favourite new voices and Thai musicians that have entered the scene.
