Tonight (10 Nov) sees AIM’s first ever Independent Music Awards ceremony take place in London, recognising some of the indie world’s finest artists and labels, hosted by Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens.
Says AIM CEO Alison Wenham: “In its first year, the AIM Awards have already shone a bright light on some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry. The response to the awards has been incredible, and signals the start of a new era in recognising a whole new measure of talent and success in music”.
Taking the top prizes, Björk will be given a statue to recognise her outstanding contribution to music, while Domino Records co-founder Laurence Bell will be handed the Pioneer Award. As well as those, twelve other awards will be handed out, with performances from some of the nominees too. Ahead of the ceremony, CMU Editor Andy Malt explores some the artists and labels on the various shortlists for this week’s Powers Of Ten playlist.
