ADDITIONAL ARTIST AND MANAGER AWARD WINNERS

Additional winners have been revealed in advance of this month’s Artist & Manager Awards in London, with Jorja Smith, Tinie Tempah and the band formerly known as Easy Life among the honorees.

Smith will receive Artist of the Year following the arrival of her second album, falling or flying (FAMM), which hit #3 in the U.K. earlier this year.

Tempah and his creative agency, Imhotep, will be honored with Entrepreneur of the Year. The latter reps songwriters and producers, including some who've worked with Drake, Dave, Central Cee and Alicia Keys.

The band formerly known as Easy Life (which had to change its name after being sued for trademark infringement by the company easyGroup) will collect the inaugural Artists’ Voice Award for its embrace of social platforms and the wider media to highlight everyday challenges faced by artists and music makers, including the impact of Brexit, the cost of touring and the levies imposed on merch sales.

Finally, the Culture, Media & Sport Committee will receive the Industry Champions Award for its work scrutinizing streaming as well as artificial intelligence, Brexit and the live market.

Previously announced winners include Duran Duran and manager Wendy Laister and Central Cee manager Bello. The awards for Breakthrough Artist and Breakthrough Manager will be announced on the night of the ceremony, 11/23.
