Dermot Kennedy, Mahalia, Slowthai and more longlisted for BBC Sound Of 2019

Kicking off its seventeenth year, BBC’s Sound Of… has kicked off its 2019 season with the BBC ten picks for acts that will dominate our next year. The semi-eclectic mix of names sees artists from as far as the US pick up nominations – with genres ranging from flamenco to indie rock and everything in between.

Voted for by critics, broadcasters and former nominees (which include Stormzy, Sigrid and more) this year’s nominees are:

Dermot Kennedy
Ella Mai
Grace Carter
King Princess
Sea Girls

Having been won last year by Norwegian pop-sensation Sigrid, this year’s contest has all to play for – with the top five acts being announced from Monday, January 7th via Radio 1 and BBC News, with the winner crowned on Friday 11 January.
