Backtracks: Ali Holder & The Broken Hearted – Transgressions EP

1349998008_ali_cover4_small_fileAn amalgam of blues, soul, country and folk, Austin-based musician Ali Holder has a voice suited to any of these broad categories.

On the six acoustic songs that comprise Transgressions, her 2011 debut EP with The Broken Hearted, Ali travels through these genres, singing with the same level of enthusiasm without regard to the subject matter, be it bittersweet heartbreak or contrite repentance on the EP’s stand out track, “The Only Thing.”

And I have done so many things out of anger
And I have done so many things out of spite
This is not one of them
This is not one of them
This is one of the only things I’ve done right
This is one of the only things I’ve done right

Ali will release her first first length album, In Preparation for Saturn’s Return, this spring/summer. Until then, you can stream/download Transgressions below.

Watch Ali perform “The Only Thing” for Audiotree during SXSW 2013.
