Career

In his teenage years, Cantwell was encouraged by friends to upload videos of his performances to Facebook, and in 2013, with the help of manager Blair Dreelan, ex-lead singer of the boyband East 17, he was soon performing live and quickly signed with Universal Music. HRVY's first single, "Thank You", was released in late 2013. Among promotional tours, appearances, single releases and other pop star activities, Cantwell appeared occasionally as a guest presenter on BBC television show Friday Download, Then as a full-time host in 2016. He regularly uploaded videos to his YouTube channel, including frequent cover songs and collaborations with other pop stars. In 2017, he released his two EPs, Holiday EP and Talk To Ya EP, which included the singles "Phobia" and "Personal" amongst other tracks. Despite wide social media presence and publicity the album failed to break into the top 50 in the UK. On April 25th, 2018, HRVY delivered his single, "Hasta Luego", featuring Cuban-American singer, Malu Trevejo. Within just a week, the song gained over 7 million views on YouTube and easily became one of his biggest hits to date.
