In my relatively short post-graduate career, I have been lucky enough to work with a wide variety of industry outfits including a major venue, a major indie label, and of course this majorly fantastic website.

Working with already successful artists is of course fun, but I definitely get the greatest kick out of working with the up and coming. Seeing a band approach their break after an inordinate amount of hard work is simply electrifying. The path to that point is a long and arduous one, but once reached it's a whole new start and a well deserved commencement into the ultimate phase for a band.

Below are ten bands that are either at -- or rapidly approaching -- what I call  "the kaboom point."  They're all bound to blow up soon.

Enjoy Loudly.
