Who Will Be Hot in 2006?: Another Prediction

In tandem with my previous post on the soon-to-be-music-stars of the upcoming year comes another prediction---this time by MSNBC via Billboard:

Pop Rock:
A duplicate from the
previous list, Arctic Monkeys are said to make waves in the next few months. The Monkeys (not the Beatles rip-offs) were signed by Domino Recordings, home to Franz Ferdinand.

Indie Rock:
A new addition to the soon-to-be's is
Decemberadio. This Christian rock band is from West Virginia and cites Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz and the Black Crowes as their influences.

"Pop Heartthrob":
17 year old
Teddy Geiger was discovered on In Search of the New Partridge Family and is already "poised to be everyone's next musical sweetheart." His work draws comparisons to John Mayer and Dashboard Confessional.

Mylo likes to mash electro dance with rock and pop. His biggest hit was a merger of Miami Sound Machine's 'Doctor Beat' and his own 'Drop the Pressure.' He will take his clubbing hit parade on tour in the United States in 2006.

Hard Rock:
Austin quartet, The Sword, replicates the original head banging sounds of Black Sabbath with a sound as sharp as their name. Their self-titled debut is due out February 14.

Christian Scott is a 22-year-old trumpet player featured on Concord Jazz. MSNBC/Billboard says:

"With a maturity engendered by his mentoring uncle -- jazz saxophonist Donald Harrison -- Scott boasts a singular breathy tone. He sounds intent on breaking straight-ahead jazz codes with his funk- and rock-infused style, marked by odd meters, urgent grooves and passionate romancing."
