Now in its 21st year, the Nordoff Robbins event will once again shine a light on the acts that have made an outstanding contribution to Scottish music throughout their career as well as those who have made a significant impact over the last 12 months.

Past winners and attendees include Paolo Nutini, Snow Patrol, Annie Lennox, Susan Boyle, Mark Knopfler, Tom Grennan, The Snuts, Amy Macdonald and Nina Nesbitt.

Funds raised on the night are also a vital part of Nordoff Robbins' ability to provide music therapists and sessions to those who need it most.

Ross McNae, Twin Atlantic bassist, said: "Nordoff Robbins and the amazing work they do in music therapy is the most important thing.

"That's the important bit, what they actually do.

"What could be more important to any of us in our lives than music? We have had our lives transformed by music, so we understand what it can do.

"I would love to get involved actively in what Nordoff Robbins do."

McTrusty added: "Nordoff Robbins is a charity we feel very proud to represent.

"The award nomination is a complete bonus as it pumps our tyres up a bit.

"There are not many charities that are a no-brainer for us but we feel proud to be part of this one in any way."

The Specsavers Scottish Music Awards will take place at the Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow on Saturday, November 30. Tickets are on sale now.
