BBC Music | Sound of 2016

Today the BBC Music sound of 2016 longlist has been announced. The list is picked by a panel of 144 DJs, critics and writers who have the hard task of picking 15 acts they feel will rise in the coming year. 

Sound Of 2016 longlist
Izzy Bizu


Alessia Cara

Loyle Carner


Jack Garratt

J Hus

Dua Lipa


Billie Marten

Mura Masa


Rat Boy

Section Boyz


My personal favourites of this years list are Frances and Blossoms. Jack Garrett seems to be the favourite to win though, this year he won the Brits' Critics Choice award and his success continues to grow. Previous winners of the BBC Music sound of... have been the likes of Adele, Haim, and Ellie Goulding. The list will be whittled down to just 5 and we will then find out the winner on 8th January on BBC Radio 1. 

Who is your favourite to win?
