Huge Thanks For The Welsh Music Prize!

It’s been a bit of an overwhelming weekend at the Swn festival in Cardiff, with Hotel Shampoo winning the inaugural Welsh Music Prize for best album of Welsh origin.

There was a strong and varied shortlist of albums. Huge respect to everyone on the list, you can see all the nominated records here:


The trophy is really cool and shaped like an old VHS tape. I’m happy to hand it back in a year if the organisers want a World Cup style scenario. There’s plenty of room for engraving a load of winning albums on it!
