Goldsmiths graduate, James Blake, was honoured at the Ivor Novello awards last week.
The 25-year-old Londoner won Best Contemporary Song for the track Retrograde off his second album Overgrown.
His award follows previous success at the Mercury Music Prize last October and follows a Grammy in January for Best New Artist.
Blake is part of a new generation of young British songwriters.
He said: “Until my second album, I didn’t think I was a songwriter… thank you for inviting me into that special group.”
Blake graduated in 2010 with a degree in Popular Music.
