UK songwriter organisation the Ivors Academy has a new Chair in the form of Tom Gray, the songwriter, Gomez musician and founder of the #brokenrecord campaign. That campaign, of course, worked closely with the #fixstreaming initiative instigated by the Ivors Academy and the Musicians’ Union in pushing for and then contributing to the UK Parliament’s inquiry into the economics of streaming.

Atlanta Soundtrack: Young Thug, Sarah Rae and a tribute to the late Tom Gray

With the arrival of a heralded new album, Punk, and a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, Young Thug’s influential and innovative presence as part of Atlanta’s hip-hop scene continues to build, even though he has already been going strong for a decade now. The 30-year-old Jeffery Lamar Williams grew up as the second youngest of 11 children in Sylvan Hills in the Jonesboro South housing projects. As a nod to the challenging hand he was first dealt in life, Young Thug’s first three mixtapes were titled I Came From Nothing 1, 2 and 3. (It should be noted that Atlanta’s Zone 3 is also where Atlanta rap royalty Waka Flocka Flame, 2 Chainz and Ludacris all hail from.)
