GONG SHOW: IVOR NOVELLO 2018 NOMS

The U.K.'s top songwriters and composers in 2017 have been honored in the annual Ivor Novello nominations list, with tracks performed and written by Stormzy, Ed Sheeran and Rag'n'Bone Man all up for awards. The winners will be revealed during the 63rd edition of the ceremony in London on 5/31.

Further gongs will be presented on the night, including International Achievement, Outstanding Song Collection, Outstanding Contribution to British Music, Special International Award, Songwriter of the Year, Classical Music Award and Inspiration Award.

BASCA Chair Crispin Hunt said of the list: “BASCA's nominations for the 2018 Ivor Novello Awards are, as ever, a mirror of the eclectic and inspirational reach of current U.K. music. As the only peer nominated music award ceremony in the country, The Ivors are inherently about musical merit and communication more than promotion and we’re especially excited to be able to honor some of the phenomenal talents of the contemporary British music writing scene. Talent admired the world over. Our congratulations go out to everyone nominated today, it’s fully deserved.”
