Sampha and Yussef Dayes lead the way in this year’s Ivors nominations.

The 35-year-old singer – full name Sampha Lahai Sisay – and the English drummer and composer, 30, have landed two nods each, bosses of the event revealed on Tuesday. (23.04.24)

Harry Styles, 30, Kae Tempest, 38, Tom Odell, 33, Victoria Canal, 25, and Fred again.. and Brian Eno are also nominated, while Blur have been recognised 29 years on from their first Ivor Novello nomination for their ‘Parklife’ album.

The Ivors with Amazon Music will take place at Grosvenor House in London on Thursday, 23 May, with the nominations now released across its eight categories – including Best Album, Best Contemporary Song, Best Original Film Score, PRS for Music Most Performed Work and the Rising Star Award with Amazon Music.

Tom Gray, chair of The Ivors Academy, said about the list of contenders: “The 2024 Ivor Novello Award nominees represent a remarkable breadth of talent, showcasing the wide-ranging creativity and innovation that defines British and Irish songwriting and screen composing.

“From established voices to rising stars, this year’s list reflects an ever-evolving musical landscape and celebrates the writing craft that soundtracks our lives.”

Of the 77 songwriters and composers who have received Ivor ’24 nominations 60 per cent of them are receiving one for the first time.

Along with two nods apiece for Sampha and Yussef Dayes, composer Daniel Pemberton, 46, is nominated twice in the screen categories.

The Ivor Novello for Best Album category includes Raye’s chart-topping pop debut ‘My 21st Century Blues’ (also written by Mike Sabath) and jazz record ‘Black Classical Music’ from Yussef Dayes.

Tom Odell has got his second nomination in as many years for his ‘Black Friday’ album, with Blur nominated for their ‘The Narcissist’ track.

The Ivors also recognises Britain and Ireland’s film, TV and video games composers – with nominees for Best Original Film Score including 29-year-old Jerskin Fendrix’s debut film score for the Oscar-winning ‘Poor Things’ and Daniel Pemberton’s for Marvel’s animated ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’.

Daniel Pemberton is also nominated in the Best Television Soundtrack category, this time for his work on spy drama ‘Slow Horses’.

The nominations come after it was revealed Bruce Springsteen, 74, will become the first-ever international songwriter to become a Fellow of the Academy, the highest honour it bestows.
