Last night saw the annual Choice Music Prize ceremony in Vicar Street Dublin. I have already posted on this earlier this week in anticipation of what is rapidly becoming an Irish alternative music tradition.
Much to my delight Adrian Crowley was presented with the award for the simply gorgeous "Season of the Sparks", beating off the likes of And So I Watch You From Afar, Bell X1, The Duckworth Lewis Method and the Swell Season, amongst others (including previous winner Julie Feeney, and my tip for the win - Valerie Frances.)
He joins the likes of Jape and the Divine Comedy in collecting this commendation. Crowley was clearly stunned by the award, left all but speechless. Congratulations Adrian, and here's hoping that you will grace us with another stunning record sooner rather than later.
Check out Adrian Crowley winning the Choice Music Prize below, as well as "The Wishing Seat", the standout track from the winning album, Season of the Sparks.
