In less than a year, Holly Humberstone has become the most hotly-tipped artist and recently named in the prestigious BBC Sound of 2021 longlist. The 20-year-old singer-songwriter’s accolades are far reaching for an artist so young. From being chosen as Apple’s Up Next Artist following in the footsteps of Billie Eilish and BENEE, to performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and being one of VEVO DSCVR’s Artists To Watch 2021, the Grantham based artist’s rise is unstoppable. Holly’s critically acclaimed debut EP Falling Asleep at the Wheel has already amassed over 50 million streams and started life within the poetry books she was raised on, and later developed her signature sound and incredible storytelling.
Holly recently starred in ‘On The Run’, a 15-minute film which documents the story of her first body of work. Shot in a few takes in a paper mill in the Midlands, close to Holly’s hometown of Grantham, the camera follows Holly through a haunting performance that is both delicate, can-hear-a-pin-drop, to expansive, headline moments. With the script written by Holly herself, the 20-year-old singer’s home has been at the heart of her songwriting and visual collages, taking the viewer on a unique journey.
