THE MUTE GODS

Nick Beggs: “It’s a joyous thing. One strives to make music, and to have it noticed is a reward. The next record is going to be even angrier – because someone made me wear underwear tonight under this kilt!”

THE ANCHORESS

Catherine Anne Davies: “This is amazing. I thought I was doing pretty well already because I was sat having dinner next to Andy Summers, so this is a real bonus. It’s reader voted so it means a lot. It’s very important to up-and-coming artists to have that support. And also, thanks to my label for taking a risk on what is an interesting record. I don’t think any other label would have taken a risk on a concept album about a romance novelist in the 1980s!”

Album of the Year

sponsored by Cherry Red/Esoteric Recordings

iamthemorning - Lighthouse

Marjana Semkina: “I feel a bit weepy. We never expected anything like that – it’s such a great honour and we’re very touched. It was a difficult album to make, emotionally and technically, but we had a great team of engineers who really helped us a lot. We’re so very thankful to everyone.”

RIVERSIDE - Towards The Blue Horizon

Mariusz Duda: “What a wonderful surprise. We hadn’t expected the nomination, and we surely didn’t expect the award. Towards The Blue Horizon has gained yet another meaning. Thank you very much for your votes and appreciation.”
