The Sound of 2014 longlist
Fifteen rising music artists have been named on the longlist for the BBC Sound of 2014, which showcases some of the brightest new acts for the year ahead.
The list was compiled using tips from 170 tastemakers, who each named their favourite three emerging artists.
Among the acts tipped for success are rock duo Royal Blood, cheeky pop upstart Chloe Howl, soul singer Sam Smith and mysterious dance duo Jungle.
Californian trio Haim came out on top last year, with Adele, Ellie Goulding and Jessie J also among past winners.
