A live performer will be taking part in the first ever London Music Awards in June.

Kimberly Anne, 26, of Penge, has been gaining a reputation for her handmade approach to music, as all of her recordings have been made using makeshift instruments and microphones.

Her studio consists of drum kits made from a £5 Ikea tables and condenser microphones duct taped to mops.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will be hosting the awards at the Roundhouse.

The new event is aiming to recognise the achievements of London’s aspiring young musicians and rising stars and a total of nine awards will be handed out.

The London Music Awards will also be an important fundraiser for the Mayor’s Music Fund, a charity that develops the skills of talented children from across London.

In just two years the fund has given out grants worth £1.3m, impacting on over 14,000 young musicians, with plans to grow its reach every year.

Mr Johnson said: “The Mayor’s Music Fund is doing a fantastic job helping to nurture the potential of talented young musicians, who might not otherwise be able to develop their skills. As well as being a fundraiser, the London Music Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the talent that has helped ensure London’s status as the music capital of the world.”
