    Good point. That would open up bands like Dope Lemon (Angus Stone's side project).

    Another thing that I just thought of is that artists from TV shows like *insert country here*'s Got Talent and the Voice have done a LOT of covers...

    Just to clarify if a band say formed in 2006 but didn't release their first demo until 2010, followed by their first major label release in 2013... would it count?

    a Grace VanderWaal song. Never heard of her before today but apparently she was 12 when she won some talent show in the US and is only 13 now.
    New Kids on the Block indeed.
