This week I’m joined by renowned singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb. We talk about getting counseling as a Christian, how she began songwriting, the demands of life, and some exciting new things Ellie’s been working on.
Singer/Songwriter Ellie Holcomb, a Nashville native, began her musical career by touring the country with her husband in Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. After eight years, and with the birth of their daughter, Ellie opted to step out of the role of heavy touring. From that space came her debut solo album, As Sure As the Sun, which charted at #1 on the iTunes Christian chart and helped deem Holcomb the “Best New Artist" at the 2014 Dove Awards. Since then, Holcomb has been walking an unexpected path, one of suffering and loss but also peace and joy. She has come to the edge of the rushing river of confusion and experienced a God who made a way where there seemed to be no way. And it is from that place—of finding God in the dark and unexpected—that Holcomb wrote and recorded Red Sea Road, released in January 2017. On September 2018 she released her first collection of children's music - Sing: Creation Songs. The seven songs found on Sing: Creation Songs were inspired by her debut children's book, Who Sang The First Song?, which will hit shelves on October 4 and is also a top-seller at Amazon prior to its release.
