About Jess Glynne
The deep and soulful vocal tone of London-based Jess Glynne became widely known when streams of “My Love,” her collaboration with Route 94 — the house-focused alias of dubstep producer Dream — appeared online in late 2013. The track went on to hit the U.K. number one spot in March 2014, but not before “Rather Be,” featuring another Glynne guest spot — this time with the inventive chamber music-meets-house act Clean Bandit — had reached the same chart position that January. “Home,” a solo track produced and written by Bless Beats of Big Life Management, appeared online that February. Two further singles became Glynne’s first to chart under her own name: both “Right Here” and “Real Love” (the latter featuring Clean Bandit again) hit the British Top Ten before the end of the year. In 2015, Glynne hit number one again as a featured act (on Tinie Tempah’s “Not Letting Go”), but she also topped the chart as a solo act with “Hold My Hand.” Glynne’s debut full-length, I Cry When I Laugh, followed in August of 2015 on Atlantic. In the UK she became the second British female solo artist after Cheryl Cole to have five number one singles.
