Who would play you in a movie of your life? 

I’ve been asked this before but I genuinely have no idea. I feel like I would want someone like Florence Pugh but I don’t know if that’s just me being really vain. She’d be great. She has the septum piercing too.

Who’s the most famous person who follows you?

Probably YungBlud. I’m on the same management as him so he’s given me advice, which is quite sweet.

Who are your 3 dream dinner date guests? 

Taylor Swift, definitely, Paul McCartney and Gordon Ramsey. I don’t think there would be any awkwardness. Imagine the conversations between those three.

What’s one thing you’re passionate about right now? 

Crochet. It’s all I think about other than music. For my show in Wrexham the other day, I made the two-piece set I wore on stage. It was hot, I was sweating. I made a top on my knitting machine and crocheted the ends for my show in Ireland. I’m obsessed. I close my eyes and I just see crochet hooks.

I also released my mini album, Hell is a Teenage Girl. I wrote that project in 2021, it’s been a long time coming. But it’s been nice to explore the creative stuff and get to know the industry a bit. I had no idea about anything. It’s been wild, I’ve loved it.

I’ve loved playing all the shows, it’s special. My whole EP is about my teenage experience and my school experience. The title is more about me. When you go through bullying and stuff like that you become self-aware in a way. That can be really good but also not so great. It’s that journey and I think a lot of people can relate. The title came from Jennifer’s Body, as soon as I heard it I loved it.

I’ve also written my second project. It doesn’t have a name yet, but it has 10 songs on it and I’m very excited for that.

What’s your ultimate hangover cure?

I’ve got tips to not get hungover. The first tip is just not drink. The second is electrolytes. I found them in a health food shop, they’re drops you put in your water. I swear to God, even just staying up late, I put a few in my water bottle and I feel perfectly fine. Do that. Lucozade works too.

You’re getting ready for a night out, what song are you playing?

Probably Hannah Montana. Any song from the movie can get me going.

Who’s your ultimate celebrity crush?

Zac Efron. I’m a Disney kid. If I could bottle Troy Bolton that would do me fine.

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? 

I think the best quote I’ve ever heard is, ‘The harder you work, the luckier you get’. I think that’s something that always stuck in the back of my head. I got told that in school and I think it’s the only thing that stuck from school.

It makes me feel like I’m in control of the things that come to me. People tell me I’m so lucky, but I did this. I think it’s important to be grateful for what you’ve got but also to be proud of yourself.

Describe yourself in three words.

Short, driven and clumsy.

Hannah Grae’s mini album, Hell is a Teenage Girl, is out now on all streaming platforms. You can catch Hannah perform at Electric Picnic this September.
