Portland alt-pop group Priory have been deemed an MTV 2015 ‘Artist To Watch,‘ the network’s annual year-long spotlight for artists on the edge of superstardom. Previous MTV Artists to Watch have included Sam Smith, Charli XCX, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Iggy Azalea, Disclosure and more. The band will also be making their SXSW 2015 debut, as well as performing at Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo.
