MTV Push: Jess Glynne

Stay tuned throughout June to find out more about the incredibly multitalented Jess Glynne.

Jess Glynne had an epiphany in 2003—the first time she heard Amy Winehouse’s voice. ‘That was the moment I knew I wanted to be a singer too,’ the U.K.-born singer-songwriter recalls. Her first foray into the music industry was behind the scenes, working as part of a management team. But she soon began honing her skills as an artist: recording a demo, writing songs, and taking a music course at a London academy. By 2013 she was signed to a major record label.

Then in 2014, Jess had a major breakthrough moment, with her vocals featuring on Clean Bandit’s massive smash hit ‘Rather Be’—an instant #1 hit in the U.K. and the Grammy winner for Best Dance Recording.

She also lent her voice to Route 94’s ‘My Love’, another U.K. chart-topper. Then it was time to introduce her own sound, which she describes as ‘hip hop with a soul voice and a sprinkling of pop.’ Debut single ‘Right Here’ entered the U.K. top 10, and April 2015’s follow-up ‘Hold My Hand’ went all the way to number one.

Now, she’s readying her debut full-length album and gearing up to become a household name. That’s why Jess Glynne is MTV’s PUSH artist for June 2015!

Stay tuned all month for exclusive videos, including an interview introducing her to fans and a tour of her London haunts.
