In just under a year, 18-year old Carlie Hanson has made her way from a small town in Wisconsin working at a McDonald’s drive-thru to a full-fledged artist and songwriter living in LA self-releasing three vibrant breakout tracks which have a collective 30M streams across Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube, all without a record label.  Her song “Only One” is prominently featured on Apple Music’s A-List Pop Playlist, Spotify’s biggest playlist Today’s Top Hits as well as an Apple Music Playlist curated by Taylor Swift. The song is averaging approximately 400,000 streams per day.

Hanson’s debut music video for “Only One,” which was directed by directing duo Similar But Different (Dani Girdwood and Charlotte Fassler) with an all-female crew. 

Hanson made her live debut earlier this year, recently wrapped a string of summer festival dates and is opening for Jeremy Zucker and Troye Sivan on their respective tours this fall. (Source: Warner Bros. Records)
