RM Hubbert wins Say Award2013-06-21 by AliW1993 | 5 Comments
|RM Hubbert has won the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award for his second LP 'Thirteen Lost & Found.'|
The Glaswegian guitarist left last night's ceremony at Barrowlands ballroom with a cheque worth £20,000, having fought off stiff competition from other acclaimed acts such as Karine Polwart, The Twilight Sad and Lau, not to mention mainstream heavyweights Emeli Sande and Calvin Harris.
Now in its second year, the SAY Award was founded by the Scottish Music Industry Association essentially as an equivalent to the UK's Mercury Prize, and was picked up in its inaugural year by Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat.
Moffat also appeared on 'Thirteen Lost & Found,' a highly collaborative project which featured contributions from a range Scottish artists, including Emma Pollock, Alasdair Roberts and Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos.
Hubbert has already completed a follow-up, with the as-yet untitled effort due around autumn.

I don't suppose many of you will have heard of this guy, but I'd encourage anyone with an interest in acoustic music to check him out. Both of his records are brilliant, his live performances are incredible and to top it off he's one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.
You don't SAY?
I like that spelling of cheque.
i can't be the only one who read that as 'L Ron Hubbard', surely
