LIVE REVIEW: We caught the hottest prospects around including our tip for the top Josh Weller.
At MTV.co.uk we like to tell you about the best acts before anyone else- just look at our Spanking New Sessions
So we went down to a certain networking sites shindig to highlight the NEXT BIG THING.
Most impressive was future solo star Josh Weller whos currently on the lips of many label bigwigs.
The nerdy looking singer is in contention with Amy Winehouse and Russell Brand for biggest barnet in London. But its the music that matters and Josh has tunes and amusing couplets a-plenty.
Standout song Circus is other-worldly with its references to bears and freaks while Pretty Girls explains the mysteries of women with references to Marks and Spencer boots.
The 21 year old is a heady mix of Elvis Costello, Randy Newman and Rufus Wainwright but with serious pop sensibilities. Indeed on Pop Star the chorus is ridiculously simple but the verses hilarious.
Weller sings about his aspirations: My political message will make you all think, and Ill sponsor an orphan or write songs to sell drinks. It could happen sooner than he thinks DOWNLOAD JOSHS MUSIC HERE
