Music acts to watch out for in 2016

The BBC has just announced the 2016 winner of their annual new music poll, and experimental songwriter Jack Garratt tops the list.

He was joined on the Sound of 2016 list this year by R&B artist Nao, indie rockers Blossoms, pop singer Alessia Cara, hip hop collective WSTRN and electronic producer Mura Masa.

Bearded Garratt from Buckinghamshire nearly went into teaching, but thankfully diverted his attentions early on. He says he’s influenced by Stevie Wonder and his track “Breathe Life” has had over a million plays on YouTube already.
