Artist & Manager Awards

The Music Managers Forum and Featured Artists’ Coalition have announced details of some of the artists and industry types they will be celebrating at the first ever Artist And Manager Awards next week, which are now being supported by American Express.

The first ever Artists’ Artist Award, presented by FAC, will go to Massive Attack. The Coalition says they will recognise the dance group “for their incredible artistic vision, back catalogue, and legendary live performances”. Meanwhile the MMF will present the Peter Grant Award For Service To Management to John Glover, who worked with the likes of Go West, ABC, Alison Limerick and Tony Hadley over the years.

Elsewhere, award organisers announced last month that Beggars Group boss Martin Mills will be presented with the Industry Champion Award, while the team at management agency Everbody’s will get the Achievement Award prize. Winners of the other gongs, including Artist Of The Year, Breakthrough Artist Of The Year, First Rung Manager and Manager Of The Year will be revealed on the night – next Tuesday at the Roundhouse – though shortlists for the first two of those have been announced, as follows:

Breakthrough Artist: Ben Howard, Yuck, Ed Sheeran, Anna Calvi

Artist Of The Year: Tinie Tempah, Adele, PJ Harvey, Plan B
