Our new issue features 12 new talents we believe will be making it big in 2012.
Grab grab Q306 now for interviews and more on all the acts, but in the meantime we'll showcase one of this year's new faces each day with a sneak preview.
Today it's Willy Moon who dodged life as a teenage drug dealer by leaving his native New Zealand with a one-way ticket to London.
Now with his sights set firmly on becoming "a massive pop star", his curious mix of past, present and future looks set to appeal to fans of Gene Vincent and Lady Gaga alike.
"In the 50s there was a real sense of optimisim for the limitless possibilities of the future that doesn't exist any more," he explains of why he's taken a step backwards to go forwards. "It's almost 2012 - we should be having holidays on the moon by now!"
Get Q306 now for the full interview, the tracks that shaped him as an artist and the other Faces Of 2012
