Among his many accolades, Ralph was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in 2016 for PRS Most Performed Work for his work on the single King by Years & Years, and in the same year he won Producer of the Year at the UK A&R Awards in London.
In addition, Rockabye by Clean Bandit was nominated for both Best British Single and British Artist Video of the Year at the 2017 Brit Awards.
