For Those I Love Wins Choice Music Prize


For Those I Love, aka David Balfe, has won this year’s RTÉ Choice Music Prize.

Off the back of performing three tracks at the event, which was held live at Dublin’s Vicar Street, Balfe scooped the prize for his self-titled 2021 LP. The Dubliner walked away with the prize – which was presented in association with IMRO and IRMA – as well as €10,000.

Balfe beat off stiff competition in this year’s shortlist, which also featured the likes of Villagers, Bicep, Kojague, Saint Sister, Elaine Mai and more. Revisit For Those I Love in full below.
