Hannah is a musician from Leeds, UK, who recently signed to 3 Peace Records. It’s a very exciting time for music as musicians increasingly build their own careers and collaborate on recordings, without having to get permission from record labels and publishers. 3 Peace was set up by Boyce Avenue, the most successful independent artists on YouTube, and is now working with & signing other talented YouTube artists.
We managed to ask Hannah these questions while she was on tour with Alex Goot, another artist building his career on YouTube.
Boyce Avenue are the most successful independent band on YouTube. How did you come to their attention and signed by 3 Peace?
I was putting out acoustic covers just using my webcam, and they saw my Teenage Dream cover and invited me out as the opener for the UK leg of their European tour. I had been following Boyce Avenue for years on Youtube before I posted my first video, so it was an amazing feeling to be asked to support them on tour. After the second UK tour I opened for them, we talked about working together and I knew it felt right for me to be signing with them!
