This is our top ten of the artists who, in our opinion, managed to differentiate themselves from the many other artists who either released or performed in 2014. We have decided to include the development both personal and musical wise in our decision of which ones to feature and exclude. At last we found these ten names left on the board – ten names we indeed will remember for their amazing year in music. We know, and do not want to hide, that this is our own view on the Artists of the Year, that said, if you disagree feel more than free to throw your personal Artists of the Year 2014 in a comment below the article. Enjoy!
