The AIM Independent Music Awards took place on Tuesday night at The Brewery in the heart of East London, hosted by XFM’s champion of new music, John Kennedy, and Radio 1Xtra’s Mista Jam.
The awards celebrate the achievements of independent artists, labels and festivals. Daughter, Stormzy, Adele, Christine and The Queens and Little Simz were among the winners at this year's AIM Awards, with Roisin Murphy receiving the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award and Richard Russell receiving the prestigious Pioneer Award, presented by music legend Damon Albarn.
For the second year running we attended the AIM awards as the official Charity partner, and to spread the word amongst the musicians and industry about the work that HMUK do. People gave generously on the night and we raised an impressive £2,025.94! A huge thank you to all those who donated on the night.
It was an exciting evening for Help Musicians UK to show support for independent musicians and to promote our recent Musicians’ Hearing Health Scheme, which gives musicians access to specialist hearing assessment and bespoke hearing protection.
We’d like to say thank you to AIM for supporting artists who make great music, and for helping to continue raising awareness of the vital work we do for musicians.
We’d also like to congratulate all the nominees, winners and judges for an excellent night in the music calendar, and a big thank you for those who donated; we can’t do what we do without your support.
