After a sensational turn onstage at the Great Escape Festival this year, Leeds-born star-on-the-rise Hannah Trigwell has unveiled the lyric video for her latest single ‘Another Beautiful Mistake’. As sheet after sheet from a notepad are torn off onscreen, the heartfelt lyrics are laid bare against a backdrop of delicious pop.
The self-taught singer-songwriter and internet phenomenon has been touring alongside Kelvin Jones and Corey Fox-Fardell. While touring the country, she played to packed out venues, delivering her uplifting and graceful music. On 1 July, Hannah will also be doing a one-off show with Walk off the Earth as their main support act for their only 2016 UK date at London’s iconic O2 Brixton Academy.
Achieving fame due to her popular YouTube performances, Hannah now boasts more subscribers than either Cheryl or Paloma Faith. The YouTube Foundry, which supports the platform’s most successful artists, has backed her and produced the following exclusive documentary on her sudden and welcome rise.
With over 70 million views, a slew of top 10 international singles, two number ones in Laos and Vietnam, and more than half a million followers online, Hannah’s journey is a unique but thoroughly modern one. Her popularity demonstrates the power of online communities and is a testament to the internet for democratising the music industry. Hannah is a contemporary pop star with an exciting path ahead, and we’re keen to see where her career goes next. She’s already received acclaim from The Sun, The Independent and The Telegraph, and even swung by for a chat on ITV’s Loraine.
Currently 25, Hannah began her career as a busker aged just 17. She traded in the Leeds high street at the insistence of friends and fans, who told her to show the world her talents on an international platform – leading her to upload her performances to YouTube. The rest, as they say, is history.
