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.

very hard working girl, but c'mon the you tube views and comments are very suspect, just check out the profile of some of them?????????? I have now lost respect for this artist, especially as she harps on about doing it the right way

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST £10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

NATIONAL GRID WILL NOT RE-THINK DEMOLITION OF SALFORD DIRTY OLD TOWN GASWORKS

Star date: 20th June 2018

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
