In an interview with MUSICnGEAR, Europe’s leading music equipment recommendation platform, YouTuber and music artist Hannah Trigwell has talked candidly about her debut album and making it as a truly independent artist.

The interview, which is available to read in full on MUSICnGEAR’s website, sees Trigwell discuss the production and required work behind her debut album “RED” (out now), touring across Europe, and finding an audience through online platforms such as YouTube.

Sharing her advice to any independent artist wanting to make a name for themselves in a busy online world, Hannah said:

“If everybody who wanted to do music just posted a video or livestreamed every day, they’d be able to build up an audience for themselves so fast. It’s just having that perseverance to do it.”

Speaking about the freedom to show off your true identity that comes with being an independent artist, Hannah said:

“It’s made the process a lot more true to me as an artist, and that’s something that might not have otherwise been possible on a major label. In a way, it would be nice to have a whole other team of people on the visual side of things, but I really enjoy being able to make a really true part of me rather than having somebody else do the music videos and stuff – I knew exactly what I wanted.

“Initially, I was either able to put out a video I directed and edited myself, or I just wasn’t able to put a video out at all. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know how to create all this kind of stuff, but it has been out of necessity as well.”

Hannah Trigwell found online fame after posting acoustic renditions of popular tracks on YouTube. Since then, she’s passed more than 100 million views and 600,000 subscribers. Her debut album “RED” is out now and features the lead single “Taboo”. You can listen to the album on Spotify, or on iTunes now.

Hannah will embark on a tour across the UK and Europe in September, including dates in London, Glasgow, Brighton, Amsterdam, and Madrid. Tickets and full tour dates are available here.
