Unai Karam is featured in over 40+ user playlists in Spotify with 1M plays on his piano covers for songs like “Despacito” and “Reggaetón Lento”. He was the winner of Artists Wanted Edition No. 4 in Spotify Community where users voted for “last waltz” as their favorite song submission. Check out our interview with Unai to learn more.
When we first wanted to recognize talented artists in the community, we started with a series called Emerging Artists of the Month. Spotify Community’s vote for Prince Harlow kicked off the emerging artists series now known as Artists Wanted ! Prince Harlow is an Indie Rock band from Prague, Czech Republic. In their Emerging Artist interview, they share about their creative process, their inspiration behind the music, and more.
Artists Wanted is a content series in Spotify Community's Discovery & Promo Board where Stars from our Spotify Star Program call for submissions from artists in the community to share their latest song releases. The Music Chat team votes behind the scenes for three finalists to present back to the community to vote on their favorite song, and we've had 6 winners since the project launched in late 2021.

I don't miss this show for nothing 🤩
Cool Stuff! Great Music! Thanks to all artists and Community folks for this! 😍
Amazing! SO much talent 👏
It's great to be part of this team! Everyone here is amazing!
Thank you @IsleyP for all the work and efforts to organize this event and make it possible. Thanks to all the Spotify Community team for this opportunity!!
Have been reading a lot about tour burnout.
Are you folks touring and feeling any of this? How has playing live changed for you in our post-COVID world?
And do things like this, streaming/virtual performances, offer a good alternative? I know it's not the same as performing live in front of an audience, but it does open things up more globally.
Very good! Congratulations to all the artists, amazing performances, beautiful songs and all very talented. May this initiative take your careers to the next level. Keep believing, God has given you this talent so that your music will touch and move all of us, listeners, music lovers and enthusiasts. I wish everyone success! 👏👏👏
That was very well done everyone, here's to many more! 🎉
It was fantastic to see such team effort come to life, and the live songs were even better this time round if that's even possible.
This... was... awesome!
So many things I loved about this:
I loved seeing how much of a community effort this was, from the Stars and Mods helping organize it to all the artists who have submitted songs in past editions and shown enthusiasm for the format.
I loved seeing how the three featured artists showed up, having put consideration and creativity into how they present themselves to the world, from capturing the special performances to talking about themselves and their music.
I'm so stoked for everyone involved. Hats off to you all and I can't wait to see more artists get featured in future edititions of Artists Wanted.
