The 2014 Dove Award New Artist Of The Year returns with her anticipated sophomore set, Red Sea Road (buy). As a response to a period of trying times for the singer-songwriter, Red Sea Road emanates hope from tracks like “He Will,” “We’ve Got This Hope,” “You Are Loved” on down to the title track inspired by, “An unseen Hope [making] a Red Sea Road when there seems to be no way (Ann Voskamp).” Piercing the doldrums of so much publicity given to darkness, Red Sea Road parts the way with a positive palette, while simultaneously dealing with serious subjects—etching an indelible mark on Holcomb’s journey as an artist with obvious staying power. She’s got music in her veins, and then some, but how refreshing is it to listen to someone willing to expand upon and stand out in her uber-talented environment?
