Jess Glynne is the latest superstar announcement for this year’s Eden Sessions with ASUS.

She will play at the home of the famous Biomes on Thursday July 14, 2016.

The London-born chart-topper is up for three BRIT Awards - Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single of the Year for her single Hold My Hand – and will perform live at the show next Wednesday (February 24).

Jess, who counts Amy Winehouse, Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston among her biggest influences, reached the top ten in 2014 with debut solo single, Right Here.

She was a featured artist on Clean Bandit's single Rather Be and Route 94's My Love, both of which reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in 2014.

Jess became the second British female solo artist to have five number-one singles in the UK, following her solo releases Hold My Hand and Don't Be So Hard on Yourself and her feature on Tinie Tempah's Not Letting Go.

Her debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, was released in 2015 and reached number one on the UK Albums Chart.

Jess Glynne is the third big name announced for this year’s Eden Sessions.

US megastar Lionel Richie is already confirmed to play two nights on June 14 and 15 (both sold out) and living legend Tom Jones will headline a show on June 26, 2016 (also sold out).

Rita Broe, Eden’s marketing director, said: “Jess Glynne is a fabulous addition to this year’s Eden Sessions bill, now shaping up to be our most memorable yet. She is establishing herself of one of the top female solo artists and has also proved a genius collaborator on some of the most memorable songs of the last few years. Her record sales and three BRIT nominations are testimony to a unique talent.”

Last year (2015) saw Elton John play two consecutive headline shows at Eden. The other 2015 Eden Sessions were headlined by Paolo Nutini, Paloma Faith, Motorhead and Ben Howard.

The Eden Sessions has its own free-to-view online TV channel (www.youtube.com/edensessionstv) featuring regularly-updated videos of some of the gigs' finest shows.

Tickets for the Jess Glynne Eden Session cost £40 plus booking fee and are on sale to members of the Inside Track programme from 2pm today, Friday February 19.

Tickets go on general sale on Thursday 25th February at 4pm at www.edensessions.com.
