Hatty Keane was born in Salford, greater Manchester. Singing from the time she could talk, everyone knew she was destined to be a success, but it wasn’t until at the age of eleven when she was given her first karaoke machine that Hatty’s love affair with music really began. She would sing at any opportunity and her natural talent and soulful voice began to shine through.
Singing in the car and performing for family and friends pushed Hatty forward and increased her confidence; always prepared for hard work and looking to improve her talents, she entered and won a school talent contest. In 2010, bolstered by her success, Hatty entered the Open Mic UK competition. Battling through Auditions, Regional Finals and Area Finals to the National Grand Final, Hatty won her age category, came second in the competition out of 9000 acts, built an extensive fan base and played in front of a 2000-strong crowd at the O2 in London.
Wowing judges including Radio 1’s Ras Kwame, Mobo Award-winning Shola Ama and BGM’s Michael King was just the beginning for the teenage sensation. Hatty’s success in Open Mic UK led to her being offered a management and development contract by Future Music and BGM Music. Hatty has been working hard ever since to perfect her music, heading toward her first single release in late 2011.
