You’re going to want to keep this Texas native under L O C K E and key! Now L.A.-based singer/songwriter Locke catches our ears with summery, feel-good pop tracks and captures our hearts with amazing music videos to accompany them. Locke hones in on the Beyoncé-esque, self confidence movement while demonstrating elements from greats like Prince and Jimi Hendrix as well. In his recently released EP “Blue Heart,” Locke addresses themes of empowerment and love, while #blessing us with catchy, funk/pop songs that we can add to our summer playlists. My personal favorite, #ThisCouldBeUs hit no. 32 on iTunes Hot 100 (not surprising), and the video, a heartbreaking story about unrequited love, will give you goosebumps. In addition to playing shows across Los Angeles, Locke headlined Pride earlier this year. Watch out Queen Bey, this “KING” is coming for the throne!
