sound of 2013

It’s only a couple of weeks since I blogged about UK singer-songwriter Laura Mvula.

But you already sense that her career is blossoming before our very eyes and ears.

Laura was included in the longlist for the BBC’s prestigious ‘Sound of 2013.’

And tomorrow the countdown begins for the top 5 artists, climaxing on Friday 4th January 2013 on BBC Radio 1.

I’ve not always been a fan of such initiatives, concerned that it puts huge pressure on new artists, and that it’s better to let nature take its course.

In Laura’s case, as a 26 year-old she has bags of experience behind her, both of making music and of life.

So here’s to her continued success, whatever the ‘Sound of 2013’ poll reveals.

What’s evident from the ‘Sound of 2013 website’ is that Laura’s version of her song ‘Father Father’ is proving very popular.
