It's Amazing Sessions time again. This week we invited Amazing Chart topper Hannah Trigwell to our studio. The 20 year old acoustic sensation treated us to an intimate performance and an exclusive recording of her debut single, Headrush.

The Leeds based songstress first made a name for herself on YouTube, racking up nearly 2 million views across her channel with a huge catalogue of cover songs - her cover of Bon Iver's Skinny Love is particularly special and worth a quick peek.

However, her YouTube fame belies her own ability as a songwriter and this session highlights her own unique talent in creating delicate and emotive tracks. Drawing on past experiences and feelings, her introspective lyrics reveal a maturity that would befit a songwriter twice her age.

In the studio we recorded four tracks including two exclusive, un-recorded songs as well as her forthcoming single Headrush. Having previously reached number six in the iTunes singer-songwriter album chart with her EP, Hold My Heart, and securing the top spot in The Amazing Chart for two weeks with Come Home Soon, we were expecting something special. She didn't disappoint! Click below for each of the four recorded tracks:

Our studio video features Pieces - a delicate finger-picked acoustic track that grows to an epic crescendo. Complimented by Jason Hope on drums, James Thompson on keys, Kieran O'Malley on violin, Will Dewsbury on guitar and Tom Wright on bass; each of the session tracks sound even more accomplished with the strings particularly bringing out Hannah's fragile vocal style.

Fresh home from a tour supporting US band Boyce Avenue, Hannah's debut single Headrush is released on Hear me Roar Records on April 11th with a launch party at The Cockpit (Leeds) on April 16th. Head over here for tickets.
