A social medium that naturally lends itself to artful contribution, Instagram has become the perfect place for musicians to share snippets of their private lives alongside more artful encounters in the studio and on the street. Although there are thousands of musicians that are likely worth a follow, here are our favorite musician Instagram accounts for 2013. Don’t see your favorite? Let us know who we missed in the comments (or tell your favorite artists to start including more puppies or something).
15. Kacey Musgraves – @spaceykacey
The self-proclaimed makeup junkie ‘grams everything from short performance clips to 90s throwback pics, with lots of glitter, knick-knacks and behind-the-scenes pics in between.
14. Alana Haim – @babyhaim
The Haim sisters are having a pretty good time as they seemingly take over the world, one late-night TV show and cake pop at a time.
13. Foo Fighters – @foofighters
Live shots, guitar photos and the occasional Dave Grohl selfie make this a very rock star account indeed.
12. Alexis Krauss (Sleigh Bells) – @kraussingaround
As I imagine much of Krauss’ life might entail, her Instagram is equal parts offhand art, back-stage nonsense and performance baddasserie. Fans of Sleigh Bells’ live show, take note: She regrams performance photos, too.
11. Drake – @champagnepapi
Because Baby Drake is pretty adorable, and the man’s lyrics are all hashtags waiting to happen. #startedfromthebottomnowwehere #YOLO
