Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): BBC has named Little Boots, real name Victoria Hesketh, as the most promising Sound of 2009.
BBC’’s Sound of 2009 list picks the musicians who show promise to hit the big time in the next 12 months.
The 24-year-old electro singer started her synth-pop sound soon after she branched out of disco outfit Dead Disco.
And the Blackpool singer has beaten White Lies, who stood at the second spot in the list.
“It is amazing that so many people want to write about me and give me opportunities, and I”m so grateful for that,” Contactmusic quoted Hesketh as saying of finishing in first in the Sound 2009 list.
She added: “For enough of those pundits to pick me as their favourite act is absolutely incredible and really mindblowing. I”m just so happy that it connects to those people. I hope it goes beyond that and translates and it isn”t just some bubble.
“I really hope that for every one of those amazing people who writes about you or plays you on their radio show, that will reach 1,000 people. Because that is what is going to make me be able to keep doing what I love.”
At the third position in the list was Florence and the Machine.
Rounding off at fourth and fifth position are Empire of the Sun and La Roux respectively.
The top ten in the BBC’’s Sound of 2009 list are:
1 Little Boots
2 White Lies
3 Florence and the Machine
4 Empire of the Sun
