Bruce Springsteen to become a Fellow of The Ivors Academy

The iconic US musician will become the first-ever international songwriter that the Academy has inducted into Fellowship in its 80-year history at The Ivors 2024.

One of the most influential and important songwriters of all time, Bruce Springsteen’s music has soundtracked the lives of millions across the globe. Often described as ‘the embodiment of rock & roll’, Bruce Springsteen’s recording career spans fifty years, beginning with 1973’s Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ and most recently in 2022 with Only the Strong Survive, his twenty-first studio album.

Bruce Springsteen said: “I’m proud to be the first international songwriter to be recognised by The Ivors Academy. In addition to recognising my songwriting, the award stands as a tribute to the fans and friends who have supported me and my work for the last fifty years. This entire country has made me feel welcome every step of the way, and for this, I will always remain deeply appreciative.”
