Fifteen for '15: The Phoenix Acts to Watch This Year

With summer preparing to give us a triple-digit reminder why the snowbirds leave in April, local musicians are hard at work.

Lucky us, because we get to reap the fruits of their labors.

The Phoenix music scene is as diverse as the Valley of the Sun is large. With everything from house DJs to conscious hip-hop to old-school groove metal, there's something for you no matter your favorite genre.

We've sifted through hundreds of local artists to present 15 talented troubadours poised to make waves in the Arizona music scene this year. This selection represents just a small sampling of the singers, instrumentalists, and performers who make the Phoenix music scene so great.

Catch them around town -- while you can.
