No matter what genre of music you like, 2013 will have something for you. And so we've rounded up a preview of the freshest faces hitting the scene that you're sure to see plenty more.
Like pop? Give Mikky Ekko a listen. Country? How about Hunter Hayes and Kacey Musgraves. Rap? Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are doing big things for the ladies.
Some people who made our cut have had some success already (Solange and Lana Del Rey are really making it big right now) and some acts are huge overseas and are ready to conquer stateside (Cher Lloyd and Paloma Faith). Some you might be hearing of for the first time!
So grab your headphones, turn up the volume and let's jam.
