The first of Nicola's pop reconnaissance tips for artists we should be looking out for in 2016 is scouse teenager, Tayá. Nicola says: "She's really sweet, she's the most stunning little girl from Liverpool and her voice is really pretty and sounds amazing on record. Her stuff is very R'n'B pop but with a lot of soul. She's like a ray of sunshine."

Tayá has been working with a variety of writers and producers, including Ellie Goulding's buddy, Starsmith, Sángo and Toddla T but on the sessions with Nicola she also worked with Dutch writer/producer, Diztortion, another of Nicola's top tips.

Listen to recent release, 'Fingerprints', here and, in addition, her first video, 'Got Me Wondering' (below) is also worth a watch.
