This week's episode of Launched 2014 features another pair of breaking talents plucked from our shortlist that you can expect to see alot more of over the course of the year. This time around we'll have UK singer-songwriter Sam Smith in the London studio, as well as Brighton-based artist Elli Ingram.
Having featured on Disclosure's smash hit 'Latch' in 2012, London-based Sam Smith has had an eventful couple of years, resulting in his signing to Capital Records for the release of debut album 'In The Lonely Hour', preceded by earworm new single 'Money On My Mind'. Sam's performance at Launched shows off his range as a vocalist, without doubt positioning him as a talent to watch.
Meanwhile Elli Ingram displays just why she's been signed to Island Records, with her recent work ranking her alongside some of the UK's finest soul and pop acts such as Jessie Ware, Adele and Ellie Goulding.
