Holly Humberstone is one of the fastest growing new artists at the moment.
The “wonky pop” (her words, not ours!) artist grew up listening to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Radiohead, growing into song-writing after being inspired by poetry books by the likes of T.S. Elliot. But, her journey into one of the most exciting artists at the moment, really kicked off in 2019, where she was selected to perform at Glastonbury… which led to her being spotted by Lewis Capaldi… who invited her on tour with him.
Things move quickly, especially for an artist who never expected to be doing music as a full-time career.
Holly kicked off 2021 by being named in the runners-up position of the BBC Sound of 2021 poll, following the release of her debut EP “Falling Asleep At The Wheel” in August 2020, which features fan favourites including “Overkill”, “Drop Dead” and title track, “Falling Asleep At The Wheel”.
With a sold out UK tour set for May 2021, the future for Holly Humberstone looks very bright, and we have a feeling that those comparisons to the likes of Lorde and Phoebe Bridgers may soon no longer be aspirations for Holly, but fully-fledged realities.
Rhiannon Nevada sat down with Holly Humberstone to talk about everything from her favourite lockdown snack to Bruce Willis, her EP “Falling Asleep At The Wheel" and even some Phoebe Bridgers.
