Another year another BBC Sound Of list. The line up for the 2017 edition is unveiled on November 28th, so i figure we could take some guesses at which upcoming artists will make the shortlist, since predictions are fun. Or generally just anyone you think will go onto big things next year, whichever waters your flower

Previous successful winners include Adele, musical legends Haim, and Michael Kiwanuka (who Buzzjack shouted "flop" at for the longest time, yet were ultimately proven WRONG (as they often are) when he claimed a #1 album)

some of my predictions:

Dave - uk hip hop will have a big presence on the list again, and Dave seems like an obvious pick
Tom Grennan - just released his first EP featuring 'Something In The Water', could see him following in the footsteps of James Bay/George Ezra
ALMA - finnish singer with green hair and makes some good, on-trend dance pop, could see her getting some chart hits
Maggie Rogers - 22 yr old who garnered attention after her (really good) track 'Alaska' made Pharrell Williams tear up, if that's not an endorsement i don't know what is
Nimmo - they've banged out a number of cool pop tunes in the last year, seems unlikely they'll blow up but it'd be nice to see them do well
Nadia Rose
Ray Blk - R&B singer, the SG Lewis-produced 'Chill Out' is her best so far
Creeper - the next R1 rock favourite following Royal Blood/Catfish/Nothing But Thieves?
Will Joseph Cook

Ones i'd really like to see-
Bonzai - probably the most fascinating newcomer person, shame on the 'pundits' if she's not there <3
BETSY - that voice *.* her recent singles have had some great support from Radio 2
Sofi Tukker - wishful thinking but their EP was so damn good

Rag'n'Bone Man is another one I think, starting to build up momentum now at just the right time and Human was TOTD recently (and on INMWT?) so Radio 1 are fans!

Fingers crossed for Dave, Nadia Rose and Ray BLK! Alongside them, my ones to watch would include:

MoStack
Elf Kid
Afro B
Gallant (unless he was 2016)
Anderson .Paak
Lady Leshurr (again idk if she has been on previous lists)
Amine
THEY.
AJ Tracey
Jorja Smith (2016?)
The Fedz

Some of these may be more accurate for a 1Xtra list but there you go. laugh.gif

Emily Warren from Frenship's Capsize who wrote Chainsmokers' Don't Let Me Down would be one.

Others that come to mind (no clue if they've already been featured or not):
The Janes
Bossy Love
Juce
Uppermost
Roosevelt
Tigertown
Katelyn Tarver
Dominique
Matthew Young
Draper
Allie X
Alice Jemima

I can also see Kimbra, Hayley Kiyoko and some established but so far not mainstream rappers having a good year, following the success of Fetty Wap, Black Beatles, and Kendrick Lamar's now fairly-frequent features on poppier songs. I'm gonna guess A$AP Ferg and Casey Veggies, as well as Brooke Candy possibly to break through and Iggy Azalea to attempt a comeback.

would love ALMA and Nimmo to do well next year heart.gif

surprised no one has mentioned LP yet, 'Lost On You' seems like a potential big future hit but I'm not sure if it'll ever be pushed.

Starley could be on there too as 'Call On Me' is already gaining.

also I hope Bishop Briggs gets a mention, she's already had success on US rock and alternative formats with her song 'River', and she's done a few great songs already.

Also BB Diamond too

Just realised I forgot about Sandra Lyng on my last post; she's had a string of singles this year that have made my personal chart, and has been trend-chasing in much the way Zara Larsson has.

Play My Drum

Moonrise

Hiding

She's a bit more Cascada in her videos right now but I think there's fuel there to transition from dance-pop into pop-dance of the kind that's popular right now.

Zak Abel - I hope this is the year he finally breaks out. He is incredible. So so talented and such a rich soulful voice but so many brilliant songs. His album is out in February.

I think they will try to push Carry Me Home off her new EP. I would say it's probably the song with most crossover appeal that she's done.
