BBC Names Number One Artist to Watch in 2009
Following their recently posted list of 15 noteworthy emerging artists of 2009, the BBC cut and prioritized...the result, oh yes, a Top 10 list. Leaving little to the imagination, the BBC titled their newest artist compilation, "BBC Sound of 2009 Top 10." Former list toppers included, Adele, Duffy, The Ting Tings and Glasvegas -- their success bodes well for the new numero uno.
The "Sound" list includes the likes of Cambridge, Mass. electro-pop guru Passion Pit (a.k.a. Michael Angelakos,)Paris' sampler and beat-dropper Dan Black and more.
For full list and to see who's dubbed NUMBER ONE...continue after the jump. Hint, Stark interviewed this artist several weeks ago...
