OUR TAKE –
We were unable to catch Holly’s recent tour stop nearby in Columbus, Ohio. But, we gave her music a listen and subsequently binge-watched her YouTube videos including Deep End (Official Video) at 1.7 million views so far, and Drop Dead (Official Music Video) at 1.3 million. What an absolutely stunning voice that gives us all kinds of feels! The press release is most definitely not an exaggeration. Check out Holly Humberstone on tour if you can (most dates are sold out) and immediately online!
