ASHAINE WHITE

Just when you thought every genre mash-up had been done, along comes Ashaine White with a brand new hybrid: grunge-soul. That’s how the super-talented North London singer-songwriter bills her awesomely authentic music. After a frustrating period of inactivity during the pandemic, her debut Fairytales EP – bristling with brilliantly brooding songs such as Cure – has restored her momentum. Within, you’ll find echoes of everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Kurt Cobain, but also a star-in-the-making with a style all of her own.

LUZ

Talent always knows talent, and despite her tender years, Luz’s songwriting skills have already been recognised by the best in the business. The Irish teenager has won support slots with Freya Ridings and Lewis Capaldi, while her emotive originals and strikingly original covers have been endorsed by Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Dermot Kennedy. Meanwhile, mesmerising songs such as We’ll Be Fine and Permanent +1 have helped her amass over 60 million streams. Next stop is surely stardom to equal some of her admirers.

MATILDA MANN

The only Mann on this year’s all-female shortlist, this 21-year-old singer-songwriter from West London is really going places. She has already finished second in Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent contest – earning a slot at the festival in the process – and supported Arlo Parks and Beabadoobee. Meanwhile her wonderfully emotional songs from EPs such as Sonder and Because I Wanted You To Know have received widespread radio and streaming support. Matilda is truly a Mann for all seasons.

NAOMI KIMPENU

Not for nothing was Naomi Kimpenu’s debut EP entitled Prelude. The stunning four-track collection is the perfect calling card, serving notice of what her perfectly poised vocals and superbly sincere songwriting style can do. With elements drawn from soul, gospel, classical and beyond, songs such as Only and Who I Am have won plenty of fans – including some major radio support – but you sense that, with Naomi Kimpenu, there is still so much more to come.

PINKPANTHERESS

PinkPantheress’ rise to fame has been very modern. She has made expert use of social media, dropping snippets of songs and gauging reaction before putting the full versions online. And yet you’ll find plenty of classic craft in irresistible anthems such as Break It Off and Attracted To You. That’s why she has racked up hundreds of millions of streams and gained rave notices in Dazed, i-D and NME. The perfect mix of new school and old school, PinkPantheress is cool for all cats.
