Her latest single, “Midnight Hour,” is a prime example of this, with its catchy melodies and relatable lyrics about the ups and downs of relationships.
In a recent interview, Warburton shared her inspiration for “Midnight Hour,” saying, “The song is about being in a dead-end relationship with someone but having a moment of madness with someone else in your friendship group – a so-called ‘stranger’ in the song. When you can’t stop thinking about what you could have and fantasizing about how young and free it would make you feel but, in reality, it isn’t something that would work or something anyone could ever know about.”

“Midnight Hour” is already making waves, with over one million streams on Spotify alone. The song has also landed on several popular playlists, including New Music Friday, New Pop UK, and Chilled Pop Hits. Warburton has also garnered support from prominent music publications such as Earmilk, Music Crowns, and NOTION, as well as BBC Introducing Lancashire’s Record of the Week.
Beyond her impressive streaming numbers and critical acclaim, Warburton is also a dynamic live performer, having played countless festivals and venues throughout the UK and Ireland. She’s supported the likes of Tom Meighan on tour and has performed at prestigious venues such as London’s Shepherd Bush Empire, Manchester Ritz, and O2 venues across Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, and Birmingham.
In addition to her musical talents, Warburton is also a force on social media, with a strong following on platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok. Fans can stay up-to-date on her latest releases and tour dates by following her on these channels.
