SALFORD STAR HATTY KEANE LOVING THE CHARTS
 

Star date: 21st October 2012

SCHOOLS 'N STARS 'N DANCE MUSIC

Salford's Hatty Keane has been waiting almost two years to be properly unleashed on the British pop scene. This week that time comes with the release tomorrow of No One Loves You, following an epic promotional tour and supporting the likes of Tinchy Stryder and Pixie Lott.

Full details here…


We catch up with Hatty Keane, about to go on stage in yet another school, part of a promotional tour that has seen nearly two hundred performances at festivals, fashion weeks and school halls since June alone…

"Where am I?" she asks herself "Oh god, I nearly said Wales!…No, I'm in Newcastle, in a school…I've done four schools this week…then I'm off to Liverpool Fashion Week straight after this. I'm headlining tonight."

Zig zagging around the country, Hatty stopped off to perform at the Salford Music Festival Kids Special at The Lowry last month (see here) and was swamped after the show with young people looking for autographs and having their photo taken with her.

There is a sprinkling of star quality already. And the names of stars that Hatty has supported reads like a who's who of the current pop scene… Labrinth, Pixie Lott, Angel, Chipmunk, Ed Sheeran, Pitbull, Wretch 32, Lemar, Tinchy Stryder, Katie B, Olly Murs, and Wiley.

"It's so weird" she laughs "I'm not as nervous when I do stuff like that now. I feel like I fit in a bit more."

The single that is hopefully going to break Hatty into their household nameosphere is No One Love You, produced by a guy who has worked with Ed Sheeran and One Direction. It's a top track, showcasing Hatty's vocal velocity, while having fizzing, sizzling hard core dance beats at its centre.

"It fits in with what's going on at the moment, which I think is good to introduce me as an artist" says Hatty "And it's a really good performance song, everyone just goes crazy."

The all heels, eyelashes and boy dancers video on YouTube for the track is already heading for 250,000 hits before the single is even released, and there's loads of comments on the page from her new army of fans… "She's amazing"… "she kindo sounds like misha B..but better!"… "She came to my school! Mutha fu**ing legend she is! We all <3'd you!"

Not bad for a 17 year old girl from Eccles, who entered and won a national open mic contest and is now living the dream…although whether that dream included more motorway journeys than a professional artic lorry driver is anyone's guess…

"In summer it was up to 140 shows this year but now I think it's up to two hundred, I've done so much" Hatty, kind of, enthuses "I released an EP last year but that was when I was developing my sound and sort of developing as an artist. But now everything's ready to go and it's just been this massive promotional tour for the single."

Is she expecting instant chartdom from it?

"Hopefully the single will chart" she says "But if it doesn't it will raise my profile a lot, and hopefully the next one will after that. It's just building up really. We'll try and chart this, or the next single. And then once we get into the position that we want to be then we'll release an album, probably next year."

If anyone deserves a shot at total fame it's Hatty Keane. A Salford star.

GOVERNMENT BLOCKS SALFORD CLADDING REPLACEMENT

Star date: 21st September 2018

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL CAN'T ACCESS £400MILLION GOVERNMENT CLADDING FUND

Salford City Council has been told by the Government that it can't access the £400million public fund to help with the cost of replacing dangerous cladding on the nine Pendleton blocks because it's part of a PFI.

Nor will the Government allow the Council to loan Pendleton Together Operating Limited money from its £25million fund set aside for the cladding. In short, it's a complete mess.

HARROP FOLD HEAD SLAMS ‘PERSONAL VENDETTA’ OF SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Star date: 19th September 2018

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
