"That’s why I’m so proud to be a CALM ambassador - I want to do whatever it takes to raise awareness of the vital work they do and encourage more people to open up and have those conversations that can help save lives". 


The Ivors Academy has announced it will stage a Songwriting Camp at Qube East in London in April in partnership with YouTube Music.

Not only will our members have new opportunities for creative collaboration and professional development, but it delivers on our commitment to fostering a more vibrant and diverse music industry alongside a key partner. It’s a thrill to launch this new moment for songwriters to develop their craft, connect with their peers, learn from established names and write some incredible music". Info here
