Last year, Sinad Harnett played her first headline shows in America, selling out dates in Los Angeles and New York City and earning rave reviews across the board. Other notable live appearances in recent months include a performance at CRSSD Festival in San Diego and Live Nations 'Ones To Watch showcase in Los Angeles last month. Sinad grew up in North London, raised by her Thai mum, who always made sure I knew how important education was. From the age of eight, she threw herself obsessively into singing, but while she'd happily perform in front of her friends for fun, she never revealed to them how seriously she was taking it. She went on to university, but singing became all-consuming, traveling back home to London every weekend to record. She put her music ideas up on YouTube, fully admitting I still didn't know what I was doing, I was just trying ideas out, but one of these clips caught English rapper Wiley's attention and he contacted her, giving her her first major industry breakthrough when she appeared on his 2011 track Walk Away.Sinad 's voice went on to become a huge part of the fabric of 2010s culture in the UK. She has featured on, and co-written releases from Wiley, Disclosure (Boiling) and Rudimental (Baby)each of them a keystone in the infiltration of UK underground sounds into the global mainstream, as well as Canadian super-producer Ryan Hemsworth (No Other Way). With plenty of new music on the horizon, Sinad Harnett plans to return to North American shores later this year.
