Here we go again… BBC Sound of has just released it’s longlist for 2020 and I honestly feel this is the first time in years that they have had a list which is actually relevant… Anyhow – here’s the lucky kids (along with the first time most of these were featured on Alfitude):
- Arlo Parks – first featured on Alfitude in November 2018
- Beabadoobee – first featured December 2018
- Celeste – first featured July 2014
- Easy Life – first featured November 2017
- Georgia – first featured June 2014
- Joesef – first featured May 2019
- Joy Crookes – first featured February 2016
- Yungblud – first featured March 2018
My money’s on Yungblud to win this, but my heart is with Arlo Parks and Celeste. The shortlist and eventual winner will be announced in January 2020.
A blend of hip hop and jazz, with an indie edge.
