My KUTX: Ali Holder

On this year’s Huntress Moon EP, Austin’s Ali Holder shows off a folk sound that’s cosmically-inclined but tough and earthy (there’s even a song called “Gemini Gunslinger”). This week on My KUTX, Holder curates a playlist of influences and musical memories: seeing Patty Griffin dancing at the Broken Spoke, falling in love with Willie Nelson, and listening to the late, great Tom Petty under a Texas sky. Listen to Ali Holder’s guest DJ set on Saturday, November 25, 6-7 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.

Ali Holder plays the Winflo Listening Room on December 7 with Austin’s Noel McKay.
