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

Tipped as the next star of British hip-hop, the fluorescent Master Shortie spans the roles of grime MC, cool club kid and teen-friendly pop singer, with a dash of indie influence thrown in.

London-raised Theo Kerlin, aged 19, had a spell at the Brit School and has taken the DIY route by setting up his own label, Odd One Out.
