The Sound of 2017 - My Edition

1. Maggie Rogers

Maggie is an American folk/electric producer, singer-songwriter. Her career began to hit new highs when a video of Pharrell Williams analysing her song 'Alaska' went viral. Her unique sound is set to make it big in 2017.

2. Rag n Bone Man

Winning the Brits critics choice award pretty much sets you up for life. Rory Graham has blown all contenders out the way and rightfully earned his right to the award. With the release of his single 'Human' it's very easily to see how massive his sound is going to be in the year ahead (and beyond).

3. Tom Walker

Manchester-born Tom Walker is an act to look out for. His distinctive sound combines electronic elements with hip-hop beats, and along with his enchanting voice it all makes for one perfect artist. Not to mention the northern charm he holds.

4. The Amazons

The reading band who make an appearance in almost every 2017 artists to watch list I've read in the last couple of weeks, look like they are on the road to hit big with both tracks 'In my mind' & 'Little Something'. Their effortless cool vibe only contributes to their appeal.

5. The Japanese House

After supporting The 1995, The Japanese House not surprisingly gained a large following. The Japanese House being the stage name of 21-year old Amber Bain, her dreamy electronic sound has enabled her to gain support from many key medias, BBC introducing being one.

6. Georgie 

Supporting Jake Bugg, Georgie may only still be building up her name but with her sound comparing to the likes of 'Winehouse' it's clear to see she's going to be one to watch.

7. Declan McKenna

His curious, indie sound is for a certain taste, certain people willing to listen to more than 2 seconds of a track. At just 17 McKenna, has got his head in the right place and his debut single 'Brazil' came after he won the Glastonbury Festival's Emerging Talent Competition in 2015.
