Hometown: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Genre: Indie Pop

Why We're Excited: Aymen Saleh makes sweetly jangling, goodnatured Britpop — appropriate for a guy who grew up in Canterbury, England. But he eventually found his way to an American town that won his heart (that'd be the great city of Milwaukee) and now uses his songwriting to reflect on the pull of both places and the pressures inherent in growing up. Dispensed with abundant charm and grace, his songs feel warm and lived-in.
