During 2014 an unusually high number of EP’s were put out, and many of them were also very, very strong efforts.
Three of the EP’s below are by up and coming singers. And we’re far from there yet, but issuing an EP before a full album might be a trend for debuting singers.
The list below is presented in no particular order and if you are curious about the EP’syou can download this Spotify playlist with all of them.
