BBC Sound of 2021 announced

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…

The winner will be announced in January 2021 on BBC News and BBC Radio 1.

“A lot of people don’t know about mental health. People lack knowledge and don’t understand that your mental health isn’t necessarily who you are. You can be depressed but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to go outside or you don’t have feelings. To me it’s not taboo at all to talk about mental health. Everyone has a mental health. I don’t see talking about sex as a taboo thing either.”

A song about being the bad guy…

“This this song is pretty much me reflecting on how small I’ve made someone else feel. Even though I never meant be a dick, I was.”
