Holly Humberstone wins 2022 BRITs Rising Star award

She beat Bree Runway and Lola Young, and will perform at next year’s Brit Awards.

Holly Humberstone has won the 2022 BRITs Rising Star award.

The singer was nominated alongside Bree Runway and Lola Young for the award, which has previously been won by Florence + The Machine, Celeste, Jorja Smith, and last year’s winner Griff.

Humberstone, who will perform at next year’s Brit Awards at The O2 in London in February, said of the honour: “I remember watching the BRITs with my parents each year and being totally awe struck by the artists coming together in what felt like another universe.

“Now to be named the BRITs Rising Star and nominated alongside two other incredible women, with the songs that started within those four walls at home is so mad. It just doesn’t feel real. This year has been a wild ride and a year of firsts, and I am so grateful and thankful for everyone who has helped make this happen!”

Humberstone released new EP ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ last month. In a four-star review of the record, DIY said: “There’s an expert tenderness to her stories and their delivery, one cut through by often-unexpected melodic switches. Her ability to hold back, to seemingly cut a track short, brims with confidence.

“It’s this musical assuredness that has propelled her this far. Even with the fact that almost all these tracks have been enjoying mainstream attention for some months prior to release, ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ continues Holly’s journey as one of the UK’s most exciting new acts.”
