AIM Independent Music Awards 2019 – The Winners

The AIM Independent Music Awards were presented last night at London’s Roundhouse. We were thrilled to see several Proper distributed artists winning awards including Freya Ridings, Gerry Cinnamon and Jade Bird.

We also sponsored the Best Small Label category which was won by Scruff Of The Neck, our MD Drew Hill presented the award and said afterwards “I was delighted to present the Best Small Label award to Scruff Of The Neck at the #AIMAwards tonight. It’s small labels like these that work at the coalface of the independent community, offering invaluable support to their artists and helping cultivate their careers.”
