Ellie Holcomb: Angel Voice

By Stephanie Davis Smith, October 20, 2015

After touring for years with her husband’s band, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, Ellie Holcomb stepped out on her own in 2011 to much acclaim. Her first solo EP, “Magnolia,” charted that year, and subsequent works have been critical successes, which helped the singer with the honey-tinged voice earn the New Artist of the Year accolade at the 2014 GMA Dove Awards.

It’s not the first time she’s moved out of the shadow of a successful man in her life. Her father, Brown Bannister, is a renowned contemporary Christian music producer in Nashville, and she grew up in the industry. But Holcomb has said in the press she “set out to avoid the music business altogether” and swore she’d “never marry a musician.” Instead, she pursued a master’s degree in education.
