Arctic Monkeys, Ghetts and George Ezra among The Ivors 2019 nominees

Arctic Monkeys, Ghetts and George Ezra are among the nominees for The Ivors 2019, which have been announced today.

The winners in each category will be revealed at the ceremony at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on May 23, sponsored by PRS For Music. 

The nominations represent the work of 48 individual songwriters and composers, 70% of whom are nominated for the first time. Works eligible for this year’s awards were commercially released in the UK in 2018 and have a British or Irish songwriting or composing contribution of at least a third. 

Ivors Academy chair Crispin Hunt said: “The works nominated for The Ivors 2019 are brilliantly diverse, and we’re delighted to see so many first-time nominees recognised. As the only peer-nominated music award in the country, they are a fantastic reflection of the exciting emerging talent of British and Irish music creators today. Our congratulations to all nominated.”

Now in their 64th year, The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British and Irish songwriting and composing across categories for songs, albums, film, TV and video game scores.
