Ali Holder currently calls Austin home, but her country roots are deep. Raised on outlaw country, Holder’s sound is Americana but rougher around the edges. She recently stopped in our Studio 1A with her band to show off songs from her new Stephen King-influenced EP Huntress Moon. You can hear Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlisle peeking through “Gemini Gunslinger,” but Holder’s sound is purely her own. Slow and beautiful, the live song possesses a darker, serious tone, pairing perfectly with her lyrics of introspection, dreams, and fate.
“Gemini Gunslinger” appears on Huntress Moon EP, out February 10th. Ali Holder plays a free in-store set at Waterloo Records on Thursday, February 9 and an EP release show at the Cactus Cafe on Friday, February 10.
