The YouTube Foundry, which supports the platform’s most successful artists, has also backed her, shooting an exclusive documentary on her monumental rise.
Having garnered 70 million views, numerous top ten international singles, including two Number One singles in Laos and Vietnam and more than 500,000 total followers online, Hannah Trigwell’s journey is a unique one, demonstrating the birth of a truly contemporary pop star who has an extraordinarily exciting path ahead.
Her online success hasn’t gone unnoticed at home either, with The Sun tipping her in their ‘Hot For 2016’ list, as well as being featured in The Independent and The Telegraph, alongside a chat on ITV’s Loraine.
Currently 25, Hannah began her career at 17 years old, busking on the streets of Leeds before being encouraged to upload her music onto YouTube. During her studies at University, Hannah released two EPs of original music following a huge wave of interest from music fans worldwide, and toured the UK and Europe three times. During the same year as achieving her degree, Hannah also won ‘Best Unsigned Artist’ in the Online Music Awards.
More recently, Hannah performed at The Isle of Wight Festival in 2015 and played to sold-out crowds alongside Jake Bugg, Lawson, Boyce Avenue and many more. Her growing celebrity fan-base includes One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Ed Sheeran. Hannah has just completed a tour of the UK and Europe supporting Jeremy Loops, as well as performing to over 1,000 fans in Doha, Qatar. Later this year she’ll perform in South East Asia - dates to be announced soon.
The Yorkshire phenomenon has a gloriously bright future ahead.
