PJ Harvey to be honoured by the Queen

15 June 2013, 08:12 | Written by Paul Bridgewater

Two times Mercury winner PJ Harvey has been named in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

The 43-year old Dorset born songwriter and performer will receive an MBE for services to music, recognising a 20-year career.

Harvey began performing in her teens as part of Automatic Diamini – her first collaboration with John Parish, who she would work with numerous times over the years including her last record, 2011′s Let England Shake.

Singer Adele and artist Anish Kapoor are among those joining Harvey in receiving honours later this year.
