Ali Holder

Ali Holder’s new record was written in the stars. In Preparation for Saturn’s Return is titled after an astrological event in which the planet Saturn completes one full orbit around the sun and returns to the same point in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person’s birth. This occurrence, which happens in 27-30 year intervals, is said to usher a person into the next stage of his or her life. Holder, who turns 27 this year and graduates from the University of Texas at Austin with an M.A. in Art Education, has composed a deeply personal collection of songs about her Saturn’s return cycle and her transition into adulthood.

Holder, a Texas native who began playing as a solo artist at age 16, sings with the controlled power of Brandi Carlile and the emotiveness of Patty Griffin. She counts a number of diverse performers—including Kris Kristofferson and Florence and The Machine—among her musical influences; her wide-ranging tastes have been reflected in her work, from her current Americana/folk output to Stuck in Red, the R&B album she released with The Raindoggs in 2011.
