Fifteen of the best rising music stars were announced as the longlist for the BBC's Sound of 2009.

VV Brown is a 24-year-old modern-day doyen of doo-wop, giving the sound of vintage girl groups a 21st Century twist with a quirky, savvy, squeaky sheen.

As Vanessa, she had a previous shot at fame three years ago as a straight-up soul singer. She sang backing vocals for Madonna, Westlife and the Pussycat Dolls, and signed a major record deal - but that fell through.
