About Hailee Steinfeld

Republic Records recording artist Hailee Steinfeld quickly cemented herself as a force to be reckoned with in pop music with a series of hits such as the 2015 platinum-certified debut single “Love Myself,” the double platinum-selling smash “Starving” with Grey [feat. Zedd], and the platinum-selling summer anthem “Most Girls.” To date, the multiplatinum-selling artist has amassed a total of nearly 2 billion streams globally.

During 2017, Steinfeld won “Best Push Artist” at the MTV EMAs and Musical.ly’s “Top Covered Artist” award at the Billboard Music Awards. She was honoured by Variety with the “Crossover Artist” award at their inaugural Hitmakers event. She also garnered three Teen Choice Award nominations for her work in both film and music.

Steinfeld’s 2017 single “Let Me Go” paired her with one of country music’s best-selling acts Florida Georgia Line with production by Grammy nominated DJ and producer Alesso and critically acclaimed songwriter and artist watt.  The song debuted in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and is currently Top 15 at Top 40 radio, where it continues to climb. In early 2018, she contributed “Capital Letters” to the newly released Fifty Shades Freed Original Soundtrack.  Up next, she joins Kelly Clarkson as a guest advisor on NBC’s The Voice.

In addition to her thriving music career, Steinfeld is an Academy® Award-nominated and critically acclaimed leading actress.  In 2016, she starred in one of the year’s best-reviewed films, The Edge of Seventeen. Her performance earned her two Critics’ Choice Award nominations and a Golden Globe® nomination in the category “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.”  Steinfeld recently starred in the blockbuster “Pitch Perfect 3” and wrapped production on her next film, Paramount’s “Bumblebee”—the first spin-off in the newly created “Transformers” universe and will be in theatres later this year.
