As a member of the Songwriter Committee at The Ivors Academy I was lucky enough to be able to attend 64th Ivor Novello awards at the Grovesnor House Hotel. The Ivors recognises the contribution of songwriters and composers to the industry. One for the bucket list, and a chance to meet some songwriting idols such as Cathy Denis!
There were some rather touching moments, and I really enjoyed chatting to the film and jazz award winners. It was nice to be a situation where creators from all genres of music were celebrated. It's also nice to escape the studio for a bit and have an excuse to dress up!
Until next year...
