Their work and words touch on a dizzying range of emotions, and I count myself lucky to have heard their stories. As it has every year since 1956, The Ivors celebrates the outstanding creation of music, and I’d like to say a huge congratulations to every nominee.”

The five artists in the running for songwriter of the year are Adele, Coldplay, Dave, Ed Sheeran and Raye.
