"I'm honoured to be the recipient of this year's Silver Clef Award. Music is my career. Music is my life. Music is my friend. Music has been there to celebrate the highs and soothe through the lows. I believe everybody has a song inside of them; some people can lose their way in life, some struggle to express themselves - but Nordoff Robbins works with these people to find their inner songbird and true happiness.”
