2015 has arrived. Which artists will be making waves this year?

The BBC has released their “Sound of 2015” list. They say the list contains “the most exciting musical talent for the year ahead”. Past artists who took the #1 spot are Sam Smith, Adele, Ellie Goulding, HAIM, and Jessie J.

The list is voted on by 139 tastemakers in the U.K.; a majority of them are not employed by the BBC.

    The BBC Music Sound Of 2015 aims to showcase the best and brightest rising stars. The list has been running annually since 2003, gaining a reputation as a democratic survey that gives a glimpse into the future of music.

    The acts that appear in the Sound Of list are all hand-picked by a panel of impartial experts from the music industry.

    Sure thing, all label batha fodder.

    impartial experts, sure thing.

    music biz 101 stuff, their territory, their pundits, their show, their pie, their everything.
