Having also featured on the Brits Critics Choice shortlist, Jack Garratt has now been named as one of the acts on MTV’s Brand New for 2016 list.

Jack Garratt said: “Thank you MTV for putting me in the Brand New for 2016 list. It’s such a great honour! I watched MTV religiously as a kid, so the 14-year-old in me is very excited right now.”

The ten-strong list also features Northern newcomers Blossoms, clubland singer-songwriter hybrid SG Lewis and the already chart-topping WSTRN. Alongside, electro-pop cool kids Nimmo and Ratboy, who is currently out on tour with The 1975.
They will go head-to-head in the fan-voted competition with, Sony signee Bonkaz, Rudimental collaborator Anne-Marie, ‘Easy Love’ sensation Sigala and the Pharrell Williams championed Rationale, to win the title of ‘MTV Brand New 2016’.
Anna Karatziva, Head Of Talent and Music at MTV U.K., said: “As always, the shortlist reflects some of the most important acts emerging right now and it looks like the competition is going to be closer than ever!”
All the acts will come together, with last year’s winners Krept & Konan and host Ella Eyre, to celebrate at a launch event held at Tape London on Tues 1st Dec 2015.
The public vote will open on the same day and run until the all-conquering winner is revealed in February 2016.
