BRITpack: The BRIT Award artists we've supported in the last 12 months

BRITpack: 
Our BRIT Award Artists | Soho House

You turned out for them at our Houses, now it's time to support them at this year's awards ceremony

Sunday 6 February By Ollie Horne

Huge performances, weird jokes, emotional celebrations, disappointments, controversies, debauched afterparties, and the creme de la creme of the British music industry. It’s the BRIT Awards on Tuesday – and this year is set to be a big one. Gendered categories were removed from the awards ceremony, resulting in the highest number of female artists nominated for 12 years. Votes were collected on TikTok for the first time, and an NFT collection will be launched the day after the event, with pieces made by digital artist, MRE, commemorating all the winners, and all proceeds raising funds for The BRIT Trust. 

We’re getting ready for the big night by wishing all the artists we’ve supported with shows around our Houses the best of luck. So, without further ado, here is our BRITpack:

Holly Humberstone
Soho Rising artist, Holly Humberstone, has already been crowned winner of this year’s Rising Star Award, and will be performing on the night. The bedroom artist has been going from strength to strength since her 2020 debut EP, Falling Asleep At The Wheel, which has clocked around 100 million streams worldwide. Her follow-up in 2021, The Walls Are Way Too Thin, takes her emotive songwriting to new heights.

Griff
Griff was also part of our Soho Rising series in 2021. She won the Rising Star Award last year at the BRITs, and for 2022, she’s up for best new artist and best pop/ R&B artist. Last year, she launched her debut album, One Foot In Front Of The Other, on Warner Records. She first signed to the label in 2019 – the year she finished school – and immediately released her first single, ‘Mirror Talk’. Her rise has been meteoric since then.

Joy Crookes
South Londoner Joy Crookes joins Griff in the nominations for best new artist and best pop/ R&B categories this year. It’s not her first appearance in the BRIT listings: in 2020, Crookes was nominated for the Rising Star award, and attended the ceremony wearing an elegant lehenga and chunni, honouring her mother’s Bangladeshi roots. Her debut album, Skin, came out in 2021, and has wonderfully retro Motown appeal. Crookes toured our North American Houses towards the end of last year, with gigs at Ludlow House in New York, Soho Warehouse in Downtown LA, and our Toronto and Chicago Houses.

Ghetts
British grime icon, Ghetts, knows how to get a crowd going. He got the party in full swing on the rooftop at Shoreditch House last year during a secret performance, with his famously rapid, venomous flows and lyrical dexterity on full display. Following the release of his third album, Conflict Of Interest – packed with appearances from the UK’s grime and pop worlds – Ghetts is in the running for the best hip hop/ grime/ rap act this year at the BRITs. As a legendary mainstay of the London grime scene, we think he has every chance of success.

Little Simz
It would be an understatement to say anything less than Little Simz is crushing it at the moment. Off the back of her hugely well received fourth album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, released last year, Simz went on tour around the UK and sold out three dates in a row at south London’s Brixton Academy. She is now tied with Ed Sheeran, Adele and Dave for most nominations at the BRITs this year, including artist of the year, best new artist, best album, and best hip hop/ grime/ rap act. If her secret show at 76 Dean Street last year was anything to go by, we’re all in for one explosive performance when Simz takes to the stage at the O2.

Arlo Parks
We’d be remiss if we didn’t shout out Arlo Parks, who won the breakthrough artist, British female solo artist, and British album categories at the 2021 BRIT Awards. It’s been wonderful to witness her growth since her tour of our Houses in London, Amsterdam and Berlin for our Soho Rising series in 2020. We hope to see you again soon, Arlo.
