Grantham’s Holly Humberstone is now one of the UK’s hottest new artists. She performed at the festival in 2018.
At 20 years old Holly Humberstone, the artist from Grantham, has already come a very long way.
From uploading music to BBC Introducing to performing at festivals & shows around the UK, she has already caught the attention of Lewis Capaldi, who she is due to go on tour with this February.
Taking inspiration from Damien Rice, Lorde, Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, HAIM and everyone in between, Holly’s style has an honest and conversational tone which immediately steals your attention, fusing the warmth of the acoustic music Holly grew up listening to with a darker, wonky electronic twist.
Holly is building a loyal fan base through live performance and raw, stripped back videos. She is currently being championed by BBC Introducing which resulted in a performance on their stage at Glastonbury Festival 2019.
Her home demo ‘Hit & Run’ has also been played on Huw Stephen’s Radio 1 show and she’s performed at Y Not Festival, Barn on the Farm, 2Q Festival, Neighbourhood and toured with JC Stewart and more.
She is currently creating her first EP with Rob Milton (producer, Easy Life), in the old countryside house she grew up in… a place where she has watched the roughness of the seasons pass year on year.
