Griff and Mysie are among five nominees for the first-ever Rising Star Ivor Novello Award

Griff and Mysie (pictured) are among the five nominees for the first-ever Rising Star Ivor Novello Award.

Each of the newcomers have been paired with a mentor, X Factor-style, with Griff teaming up with Kamille, Mysie with Fraser T. Smith, Amahla with Nile Rodgers, Carmel Smickersgill with Anna Meredith, and Lullahush with David Arnold.

Helienne Lindvall, Chair of The Ivors Award Committee at The Ivors Academy, says: "I'm delighted that The Ivors Academy is working with Apple Music on the brand-new mentorship programme to empower young songwriters and composers. Right now, there are more opportunities but we are also facing more challenges than ever, so it's more important than ever to support and champion music creators.

"Starting out in the music industry is notoriously difficult, so it really matters that we nurture songwriters and composers at the beginning of their careers. It's fantastic that the Rising Star Award with Apple Music is recognising and promoting such extraordinary and inspiring young talent."

The full nominations for the Ivor Novello Awards will be revealed on 20th July, with the winners across all categories announced on 2nd September. Visit ivorsacademy.com for more.
