Longtime Austin music scene fixture Ali Holder, "ranks among Austin’s brightest songwriters," says Austin Monthly. Holder has released two EPs and two LPs over the last decade. She draws from both traditional singer-songwriter forms and more modern indie influences in her most recent LP, "Uncomfortable Truths." No Depression says about her music, "she digs deep into her own feminism with clear-eyed honesty. Some tunes are as expansive as Holder’s native Texas, while others are as close and claustrophobic as a troubled relationship." The Austin Chronicle says her music is, "a breakthrough with brilliant, bruising confessionals and defiant, compassionate anthems, cutting the space between Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann."
