The deeply poetic East Midlands songstress 

Hailing from Grantham, indie singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone played violin in the Lincolnshire Youth Symphony Orchestra. As a teen, she was attracted to the honest storytelling style and intuitive melodies of Damien Rice and Bon Iver as well as the beautiful lyrics of artists like Phoebe Bridgers and HAIM.

By the age of 16, Humberstone was writing her own self-reflective material and creating demos she made with GarageBand on her father’s Mac. She soon built up a fan base with her poignant vignettes and raw videos. After uploading songs to the BBC Music Introducing website, her track Hit And Run started getting airplay. She not only landed a manager but began performing live gigs, including a set on the Introducing stage at 2019’s Glastonbury, among other festivals.

Following the release of her debut single Deep End in early 2020, Humberstone caught the attention of Lewis Capaldi and joined his European tour as a support act.

Her first EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel – recorded with producer Rob Milton (Easy Life) – arrived in August 2020, and the short film On The Run came out as a visual accompaniment to it a few months later.

The Great Escape revealed Humberstone among the first 50 acts in the line-up of its 2021 edition. Although she was set to play her first ever headline shows at London’s Omeara in early 2021, those gigs were rescheduled to summer 2021 with several new dates added as part of her Deep End UK tour.
