Unsigned Music Awards 2016 – Results

We’ve just about recovered from the glory of last week’s first ever Unsigned Music Awards at The Troxy in London, and we’re excited to share the full list of winners with you! Hosted by Laura Whitmore and Chris Stark (and sponsored by Liquiproof), the event showcased the determination, talent, and entrepreneurial qualities possessed by today’s independent and unsigned artists.


We caught up with winners Elle Exxe (pictured above) and Broken Witt Rebels  (pictured below) backstage before the ceremony, and spent the rest of the evening raising (several) glasses of Prosecco in praise of the other winning artists.



Read the full list of winners below, and follow the UMAs on Facebook for updates about next year’s ceremony!
