Tied with the 25 songstress are breakthrough musicians James Bay and Years & Years, who scored four nods each!

There must be something in the water!
Music in the U.K. is sooooo good right now!
She's part of this growing British movement of artists like Mumford & Sons and Ed Sheeran.
Folksters with a real sincerity to their work and influences of American country music.
Such sincerity. Such passion. Such emotion.
Like a breath of fresh and cold air, Laura Marling reminds us of a female Damien Rice.
In other words, she's amazing!!!!!
