What a year it’s been… But through all the horrible peaks that everyone’s experienced, the output of music has remained as strong as ever.
With that said, this year’s long list for BBC Sound of 2021 is a solid reflection of just how much talent has emerged recently.
As usual, I’m glad to see that I managed to catch some of the artists while they were still emerging…
