Ellie Holcomb, Musical Guest
Whether she was spinning confessional tales of romantic heartache during her college years, collaborating with her husband Drew as part of his band, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors or penning her personal reflections of God’s faithfulness as a solo artist, singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb has always viewed music as the ultimate bridge-builder. In the process of touring seven years of with Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Ellie began writing her own songs. They were often inspired by the lives of those they encountered on the road, at Young Life camps, and by their community in Nashville. “I love sitting in God’s word and letting music come out,” Ellie shares. “It feels extravagant and it’s become one of my very favorite things to do.” Inspired by these encouraging promises, Ellie recorded and released two EPs full of songs based on the Psalms and other scriptures, Magnolia EP and With You Now. Even with zero dollars spent on promotion, the response to these two EPs was remarkable in a way Ellie never saw coming. To wit, they both hit #1 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts. Now with Holcomb’s first solo effort, As Sure As the Sun (Full Heart Music), Scripture is, once again, intentionally at the forefront of all 10 tracks. Written before–and while–Ellie was pregnant with her daughter, Ellie says her hope is to refresh and encourage weary and wounded hearts. “I love writing songs about truths that I forget so easily–who God is, who I belong to, what I’m called to,” Ellie shares. “When I think about what I want to be doing, it’s singing truth into the darkness. Life is hard, and I’ve walked through some heart-breaking things with friends. But when we’re walking right up to that darkness with God’s truth and light and life, there’s a sense of hope breaking in. I want to help encourage the wounded and weary in our church pews, that’s what I want to be a part of.” For more information about Ellie Holcomb, please visit her official website at www.ellieholcomb.com.
