IT’S OFFICIAL – THE best Irish album released last year was Before We Forget How To Dream by Derry singer-songwriter SOAK.
The Choice Music Prize is fiercely contested every year, and this year saw heavyweights like Villagers and Roisin Murphy up against newcomers like Girl Band.
It’s no easy task to pick the Choice Prize winner – as a former judge I can tell you that sitting around the table debating who should win is both illuminating, exciting, and pretty damn tough.
The announcement was made tonight at the Choice Music Prize live event, where a number of the nominees performed.
