George Ezra, previously featured here in December 2012 has come fifth in this year’s BBC Sound of 2014.

Exciting news for a great talent and a big voice. Tomorrow we find out who’s come in fourth place.

bbc sound of 2014 list

I wait all year to see this list get published. Only because it’s interesting to see how many people have already been featured on here.

The BBC Sound of 2014 is often a predictor of what music acts will launch big in over the next twelve months, and has featured the likes of Adele, Jessie J and 50 cent.

This year’s mix is a lot better than last year’s in my opinion, and is definitely more pop-orientated than previous ‘Sounds of’. Here’s the full list:

The top 5 will be revealed daily starting 6th January 6th 2014, with the winner crowned on the 10th. I’m not putting any guesses on who will win this time round though!
