The Thirty Best New Music (Acts) for 2015: ‘The First Ten’

 The Thirty Best New Music (Acts) for 2015:

 

‘The First Ten’

 

Jen Armstrong:

A woman who had made me reassess life; made me make some big changes- switch to vegetarianism, sign up as a blood and organ donor- and strive for better things.  She is going to be rocking the U.S. (for six months) very soon- and is an incredible talent to watch.  One of the most stunning musicians in the U.K., you would be foolish to pass her by.

Chess:

From Malta to Surrey, to… who knows where?  Last year was a busy and promising one; her two previous E.P.s- Babygirl and Tuxedo- have shown what a songwriter she is.   We are less than a month in (to 2015) but the signs point to some big things: a new single is just the start of it.  Keep your eyes planted her way…

Marisa Rodriguez:

A young talent that works tirelessly (to promote her music).  One of the most diverse and impressive young songwriters around: her upcoming E.P. will be one of the most anticipated of 2015.  A stunning voice- and stunning artist- it will only be a matter of time (before Marisa) is a big name.

Elena Ramona:

In a scene that can be defined (by predictability and limits), Elena Ramona is a singer/songwriter who offers something fresh- a unique voice with a special talent.  Growing in stature and confidence; she is a stunning artist that will be making waves (and impressions) as the year unfolds (with a new E.P. mooted).

Issimo:

A charming and (hugely gifted) Yorkshire duo, these guys are an immense prospect.  Seemingly capable of owning any themes, style (or genre), their effortless and diverse songwriting is a joy to hear- their live performances have charmed and seduced many.  It is only a matter of time before the heartwarming twosome are festival mainstays.

Gypsyfingers:

Over 2014, I reviewed many amazing musicians: few more memorable than Gypsyfingers.  Their album Circus Life was a highlight for me: it demonstrated how naturally they (Luke Oldfield and Victoria Coghlan) unite.  Stunning vocals, entrancing songs; incredible compositions- a Folk duo with a massive future.

Ellene Masri:

Alluring and romantic; impassioned and empowering: Ellene Masri creates music for the masses.  Elements of Jazz and Pop fuse into songs which linger in the mind- topped with a voice that can buckle the knees.  Splitting her time between the U.S. and Europe, the young star is a continent-straddling artist with plenty to say: with many ears (more than) willing to listen (and adore).

The Updraft Imperative:

Christian-Rock magic from the Australian wonders.  If you love your music catchy, nuanced and inspiring: these are the guys for you.  Whether you are religious (or not) then they will appeal and entice: their songs are designed to make you smile, think and reflect- few other bands are capable of doing this.  Let us just hope they come and play (in the U.K.) as much as possible this year.

Chenai Music:

Strong and defiant; principled and thoughtful- an artist that has the power to inspire musicians and change minds.  One of the most naturally beautiful women (I have seen), her voice and artistry is a glistening treat: her music is some of the most original and innovative around.  With new releases (surely forthcoming) this year- check out a young artist with limitless potential.

Los and the Deadlines:

A band I am familiar with: their songs never fail to amaze me.  Hard-rocking and swaggering; cool and detached- these guys can pretty much do anything.  Their order composes multiple nationalities; their songs cover masses of ground- their consistency and prowess is staggering.  Going from strength-to-strength, the London group is one of our finest.
