You listened to some of the best tracks of 2014 by our students and alumni and voted in droves, and we're pleased to announce that the winner of our inaugural Leeds College of Music Track of the Year award is third-year Classical student, Mikey Sluman.
Mikey – an oboist who is also a winner of the Alan Hawkshaw Scholarship for endangered instruments – scooped the award with his recording of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.2.
Our runners-up are Reed & Ivory – aka Helen Goldsmith and Ben Cockburn, also third-year Classical students – and Pop alumna Kirsty McQue.
The shortlist also featured music by Coracle, Cynikal, David Orton, Eaves, Faz Shah, Leo Wyatt, Roller Trio, Ruby Wood and Nubiyan Twist, and Samadhi Quintet. You can read more about them and listen to their work on the North Poll website – or using the playlist below.
Nominees were chosen by Leeds College of Music pathway leaders, from the artists featured in our monthly SoundCloud playlist in 2014.
