UK HEADLINE TOUR JUST ANNOUNCED
BEST FEMALE BREAKTHROUGH WINNER AT THE SCOTTISH MUSIC AWARDS
HUGE RUN OF SUMMER FESTIVALS ANNOUNCED INCLUDING TRNSMT, NBHD FESTIVAL & MORE
Soulful Edinburgh-born newcomer Brooke Combe has today announced details of a brand-new headline tour for October 2022. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 13th July.
The 21 year old – now based in East and Midlothian – enjoyed a remarkable breakthrough year in 2021, which culminated in winning the Breakthrough Female prize at the Scottish Music Awards. Combe’s 2022 kicked off in similarly scintillating fashion with her debut single ‘Are You With Me?’ topping the Official Vinyl Singles chart upon its release on 7”.
The rising soul star has been adopted by indie royalty such as The Courteeners and The Snuts, who Combe supported last year; now she joins a clutch of hotly-tipped female artists making waves on the live circuit like Wet Leg in playing a run of UK festivals – including Liverpool Sound City, Warrington’s Neighbourhood Weekender and a slot at Glasgow’s TRNSMT. Brooke Combe will also perform at Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester on Saturday 1st October.
Brooke Combe discovered a love for music aged just 5 years old, after getting her first toy drum kit. Eventually she added playing saxophone, trombone, guitar, bass and piano to her repertoire while at secondary school and began to find her own uniquely powerful voice along the way. Combe, influenced by the ‘90s R&B played in her mum and dad’s house, as well as the Motown her grandparents would play her, developed a love of great songwriting and vocalists and lyricists with their own idiosyncrasies – such as Amy Winehouse and Fleetwood Mac – before beginning to work on her own material.
Now, with ‘Miss Me Now, her stunning fourth statement out in the world, Brooke Combe has confirmed herself as a genuine artist to watch in 2022 and provides another tantalising window into the world of a singularly talented and hugely exciting young artist.
