Scottish Album Of The Year Award

Kathryn Joseph’s ‘Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled’ has been named the Scottish Album Of The Year. The musician takes home the award’s £20,000 top prize.

Stewart Henderson, chair of the Scottish Music Industry Association, said: “It’s been a flagship year for The SAY Award, our biggest yet, so I’m absolutely delighted for Kathryn. ‘Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled’ is a beautiful, very special album. I’m just incredibly proud of all the music our artists have released over the last fifteen months – and for The SAY Award to recognise a talent like Kathryn, well, we must be doing something right. It’s shaping up well for The SAY’s fifth anniversary next year”.

Joseph was up against Belle and Sebastian, Errors, Happy Meals, Honeyblood, Paolo Nutini, Paws, Slam, The Amazing Snakeheads and last year’s winners Young Fathers.

Each nominee also receives £1000 and a one of a kind quilt from Glasgow School of Art graduate Vanessa Hindshaw.
