Nordoff Robbins Scotland and sponsors SSE have today added Scottish superstars Emeli Sandé and Nina Nesbitt to the SSE Scottish Music Awards. Critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé is nominated for the King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut Song Writing award, acknowledging her outstanding credentials on hits such as ‘Heaven’, ‘Next to Me’, ‘Clown’, ‘Hurts’ and many more from her albums ‘Our Version Of Events’ and ‘Long Live The Angels’.
Edinburgh-born popstar Nina Nesbitt is nominated in the Coors Light Evolution category. Nina found success with her debut album ‘Peroxide’ and has proven to be an ever-evolving artist, set to release her second album in 2018.
Both Emeli and Nina will perform at the awards ceremony, ensuring crowds gathered at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket on 2nd December have a jam-packed evening of entertainment to enjoy, whilst simultaneously providing crucial fundraising for vulnerable children and adults across Scotland, for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland.
Tickets are available via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nina Nesbitt said: “It’s really cool just to be nominated and it’s always special to be recognised for something in your own country. I won the award for Best Emerging Artist in 2013, so it’ll be really nice to be back again. I’m a big supporter of Nordoff Robbins. Music is such an important thing as it’s therapeutic to everyone at the best of times, so to use it specifically to help people who need it is a really powerful thing.”
Emeli Sandé plays the SSE Hydro on Sunday 15th October and her new single ‘Starlight’ is out now. Nina Nesbitt plays at the Glasgow Art School on November 22nd and her new single ‘The Best You Had’ is out now.
Nordoff Robbins Scotland caught up with Jack Daniel’s Breakthrough Artist nominee Lewis Capaldi – who will also be performing at the awards – before he took to the stage at St. Luke’s in Glasgow to find out which Scottish artists inspire him.
