UK Artist to Watch: Clare Maguire

[mp3] Clare Maguire: "Ain't Nobody (Memory Tapes Remix)"

While we've had our noses burried in best of 2010 lists, we've already been canvassing rising talent for 2011, which includes forerunner Clare Maguire. If the success of Florence and The Machine, Adele and La Roux are any indicators, Maguire is poised to capture the attention of fans on both sides of the Atlantic. That is of course if she delivers a solid full-length. We've seen poor marketing plans take down promising artists in the US (see: Little Boots), and catchy singles succeed on an album of duds. So, it's still early for Ms. Maguire, but with the backing of some nice early press, and obviously, us, we think Clare Maguire has a solid shot to turn some heads in 2011.
