Scottish talents were honoured at the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards this evening. 

The awards show took place virtually with Edith Bowman hosting it live from the SWG3 in Glasgow. 

Lewis Capaldi, Biffy Clyro and Texas were just some of the popular artists to be named winners during the event. 

The night featured a special at-home acoustic performance from Capaldi, as well as new, socially distanced performances from Amy Macdonald, Texas, Wet Wet Wet, Dougie Maclean, Luke La Volpe, HYYTS and more.

It raised vital funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins which has seen its income halved due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

Biffy Clyro won the Best Album Award for their latest record A Celebration Of Endings and recorded a special video message.

In it they said: “Hello everybody, we hope you’re well! Thank you so much for the Scottish Music Award Album of the Year, it means a lot to us.

“When we started recording this record last year, I guess like everyone else, we had no idea what 2020 held in store, but you know what, the power of music and art feels more important than ever this year.

“We’ll all be back together soon I hope, we love you guys, we miss you guys.”

Meanwhile, Luke La Volpe and kitti picked up the Best Breakthrough Awards, with Glaswegians still awaiting Luke's sold-out show at King Tut’s set for 2021. 

The Best UK Award went to Capaldi, who played an acoustic rendition of two of his biggest tracks Before You Go and Someone You Loved, from his home.

Amy Macdonald won the Women in Music Award and the Songwriting Award went to Young Fathers.

Wet Wet Wet collected the Outstanding Contribution Award and gave a performance of some of their biggest hits.

Donald C MacLeod, chairman of the Nordoff Robbins Fundraising Committee Scotland, said: “Like so many charities, Nordoff Robbins have been severely impacted by Covid-19 and we truly can’t thank everybody who came together to make this event happen enough.

“From Scottish music legends like Dougie MacLean and Wet Wet Wet, superstars like Lewis Capaldi and Biffy Clyro, and not to mention rising stars like Stephanie Cheape and Luke La Volpe – music has been a lifeline for so many of us during these unprecedented times and their support is so appreciated.

“And to our audience who joined in from their own homes tonight and so generously donated to Nordoff Robbins – your ongoing support ensures we can provide music therapy to those who need it most, particularly in these trying times when more people than ever are facing social isolation. Congratulations to all our winners!”
