Hannah Trigwell’s story is one of hard work and determination. Dubbed by ITV’s Lorraine Kelly as ‘The People’s Queen’, the self-taught singer-songwriter went from busking in Leeds to building up a following of 419,000 on YouTube before charting at number 1 in Vietnam and Laos.
She makes pop music with sass! Funky, sometimes sad but always catchy pop her debut album RED was released this summer. She’s one for fans of Dua Lipa, Sia and Anne-Marie.

St Pancras Old Church is one of London’s most intimate gig settings so you’re literally feet away from whichever artist is performing, a real treat. Born in France to a Sengalese father and Franco Italian mother London-based rising soul singer Anais, an NYU graduate, is being touted as The Next Big Thing.
If you’re a fan of the likes of SZA, Khelani and Solange, then you’ll enjoy the deep and touching lyrics of Nina, a song she wrote in ode to the legendary singer Nina Simone.
Her latest single No Control was co-written with lead singer of British pop band Years & Years Olly Alexander so she’s certainly got some fans in high places.

Sports Team, an indie band from Harlesden, has been playing gigs non-stop this year and their performances just keep getting better and better. Lead singer Alex has the dance moves of Mick Jagger and Ian Curtis, so prepare yourself for his multiple stage (he’s brilliant at them).
This gig will leave you sweating from all the dancing and jumping around that you’ll be doing. A few months ago I predicted this band would be playing big venues and this Scala gig shows they’re only heading upwards.

Sylo Nozra really channels that old school R&B sound. A talented singer from Toronto, he’ll be a long way from home when he plays in London this month, but he’ll definitely have you swaying along to his TLC/early Destiny’s Child sounding song Try Again,when he performs at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen.
This a venue famed for giving future music stars a platform and Sylo is very much a talent to watch.
