Uk blog sound 2015 winner!

And the winner is...

Låpsley !!!
Liverpool's Holly Lapsley Fletcher has been named the winner of the Blog Sound of 2015, a poll of 62 UK based music bloggers.

Låpsley was the clear winner of the poll with double the number of points than any other act on the 15 strong long list.
The producer and songwriter became an instant hit with music bloggers when she uploaded her song Station to Soundcloud towards the end of 2013. She subsequently signed to XL records in 2014 and releases her debut EP for the label on January 5th.
Låpsley continues a pattern of female vocal acts topping the poll. Previous winners are Banks, Marika Hackman, Haim and Friends.

The Blog Sound of Poll was set up as an experiment by the Breaking More Waves blog to see if music bloggers would choose different emerging acts to those on the ubiquitous BBC Sound of Poll. 

However as bloggers vote around the same time as those voting for the BBC poll vote there is no way of knowing if they will choose the same artists or different ones. This year 3 of the 15 acts on the BBC list were also on the Blog Sound list. (Låpsley, Shura and Soak).

I myself am very proud that someone from Liverpool won! 

Thanks to Robin from Breaking More Waves

Happy new year from me!
