PJ Harvey to be honoured at Shockwaves NME Awards

PJ Harvey to be presented with the Teenage Cancer Trust outstanding contribution to music award

The Shockwaves NME Awards 2011 have announced that the recipient of this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution To Music award will be PJ Harvey. Picking up the coveted award in person at the ceremony PJ Harvey will also perform live at the event.

“From the sheer rawness of her 1992 debut album ‘Dry’ to the compelling honesty of her new album ‘Let England Shake’ which tackles war and global conflict, Harvey has always remained uncompromising and individual in her approach to music. But despite her willingness to experiment and push herself to artistic extremes, PJ Harvey is no fringe act. She has played to giant crowds at the world’s leading festivals, received praise from many music legends (including Radiohead, Patti Smith and Captain Beefheart) and won a Mercury Prize for a million-selling album. In short PJ Harvey is a true artist, able to challenge and entertain, provoke and thrill. Her contribution to music is unique and unrivalled and NME is proud to pay tribute to her with this special award.”
NME Editor Krissi Murison

This is one of the special awards of the night, along with the Godlike Genius award, which is chosen by NME to recognise services to music. This year’s Godlike Genius award will go to Dave Grohl, who will play a live set with Foo Fighters at the awards.

With a live set from My Chemical Romance also confirmed – and more very special guest appearances to be announced – the Shockwaves NME Awards 2011 will gather the best new bands, returning icons and the most influential legends to celebrate the most credible music awards in the world.
