10 CMJ Heavyweights

These artists have a solid fan base and buzz already established; their CMJ’s heavyweights, showing the rest how it’s done (or in some cases, seeking a career revival). Either way, CMJ proves to be a platform for artists to not only be discovered but reaffirmed. It’s always fun to include some bigger acts in the CMJ mix – will you be checking any of them out?
