Chicago’s music scene is unlike any other in the country, you got your pop, rock, alternative, underground hip-hop, R&B, country and so much more. The scene is not unlike the Midwest, a true melting pot of just about everything you can ask for.
Emerging and perhaps emerging fast out of the cluttered Chicago pop/rock scene is a group called Famous Like You, formerly the band A Kidnap in Color. Famous Like You has quickly built up a following with their catchy lyrics, deep and soaring melodies and an overall pop/rock feel that you can rock your hands and feet to. After an unusually long and protracted dispute with the previous label, Famous Like You has been shooting up the Chicago music scene and now are poised to reach the pinnacle of indie music stardom and perhaps, just perhaps get the attention of a major label sooner than later!
Check out their music after the jump below and find out why we are putting this Chicago group on The Spotlight! It’s been a while since a Chicago group had the potential to emerge out of the scene and on to the national stage…like Fall Out Boy.
