Roisin Murphy's career in the music industry, which has seen her deftly dabble in a multitude of genres, has been honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the 2016 AIM Independent Music Awards.

The Irish singer-songwriter became known in the '90s with alternative electro pop band Moloko, before embarking on a critically-acclaimed solo career, releasing her debut solo album Ruby Blue in 2005 followed by Overpowered in 2007. 

After an eight-year hiatus, her third album, Hairless Toys, was released in 2015 and garnered a Mercury Music Prize nomination, followed closely this year's by Take Her Up to Monto.

Take Her Up to Monto continues the low-key sonic vibe of its predecessor but pushes the experimental envelope even further and isn't afraid to paint outside the lines, read our review here.

Murphy follows in the footsteps of previous Outstanding Contribution to Music recipients including Bjork, Richie Hawtin, Billy Bragg, Skepta and Edwyn Collins.
