The latest release from Holly Spears just goes to prove this city is rich with talented musicians. You just have to look between the cracks. You’d never know it by listening to Clear Channel’s slew of stations but great artists are all around us in all forms and styles.
Take Holly spears for instance. Normally we rant and rave about the bands that can thrash, crash and tear the stage down. Here we have a CD release that’s more at home on WNKU than on WEBN. And that’s a good thing, NKU might actually play her work whereas we’ll never hear a local Cincy band on EBN.
Holly Spears reflects an honesty and intelligence in her music. It is contemporary Christian pop to be certain, yet it retains a modern folk music appeal that would attract any local folk/acoustic music lover, Christian or not. This is the first Christian music CD we’ve had the chance to review and I’m not well versed on the who’s who in the genre. However based purely on the singer songwriter quality this little lady has her act together.
Holly Spears’s work is more a self reflective appreciation for her faith than the “spiritual sales based” marketing approach you’ll find with much so called Christian music. She’s heavily talented in both her song writing ability and her instrumental prowess. Holly’s singing about her appreciation for the healing she has experienced from her faith, she’s not singing to inspire you to join her faith. That’s what I really appreciate.
The entire disc is well produced and I feel any fan of WNKU’s brand of modern folk/acoustic would welcome this disc to their collection. It’s just good music and that’s good enough for me.
