Rumer nominated for three MOJOs
Rumer leads this year’s MOJO Honours List 2011, with three nods.
The ‘Am I Forgiven’ singer-songwriter – a newcomer on the Honours List – has amassed a hat-trick of nominations including MOJO Breakthrough, MOJO Best Album and MOJO Song of the Year.
Rumer’s ‘Season’s of my Soul’ LP has given her a chance of taking home the Best Album award, but she faces competition from former Czars frontman John Grant – who has also been nominated for MOJO Best Live Act- with his ‘Queen Of Denmark’ record and MOJO Song of the Year.
Arctic Monkeys – who have collected their seventh nomination in the last four years – could pick up the album gong with ‘Don’t fourth record ‘Suck It And See’.
A number of merit awards will be handed out by the magazine team, including The MOJO Hall Of Fame Award, The MOJO Les Paul Award, The MOJO Classic Songwriter, The MOJO Icon, The MOJO Inspiration Award, The MOJO Lifetime Achievement Award, The MOJO Medal Award and The MOJO Maverick Award.
The ceremony is set to take place at London’s The Brewery on July 21st.
