Hemlocke Springs

Rolling Stone calls Hemlocke Springs the “accidental pop star.” This is because Springs actually started out making music just as a hobby in college. However, Springs has quickly made it to the one-to-watch list after the viral success of “Girlfriend,” her single. According to Rolling Stone, Springs is releasing her next single this January and is currently working on a debut album. We can’t wait to see what new projects Springs comes out with next!
