Raised in Muswell Hill, London, Jess Glynne rose to fame when she scored not one, but two No.1 singles as a featured artist on Clean Bandit’s Rather Be and Route’s 94 My Love in 2014. The song Rather Be won a Grammy in 2015 for Best Dance Recording.
Her first solo single, Right Here, was also released in 2014, and reached No.6 in the UK Singles Charts. It was the first single from her debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, released the following year. It peaked at the top spot in the UK Album Charts, and reached the top 10 in multiple countries including Italy, Australia, The Netherlands and Ireland.
The album features her other No.1 singles including Hold My Hand and Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself.
After a couple years out writing and creating her second studio album, she returned to the music charts in early 2018, featuring on Rudimental’s single These Days alongside Macklemore and Dan Caplen. After spending weeks on the chart at No.2 behind Drake’s God Plan, the song finally went to No.1 in March.
As well as winning the Grammy Award, she has been the winner of several other awards including at O2 Silver Clef Award and The A&R Award, and has scored a number of nominations for The Brit Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards and the BBC Music Awards.
In 2019, Glynne will be supporting the Spice Girls on their UK stadium tour dates, as well as appearing at several summer festivals and headling her own huge outdoor shows.
