“It’s an absolute pleasure to be involved in the Heavy Music Awards. The calibre of talent involved in the event is incredible, and I couldn’t be happier to join the judging roster. It’s always a pleasure to help in the promotion of rising talent, and help pave way for the stars of tomorrow, something I’m sure the HMAs will go a long way towards.”
