Ellie Holcomb views music as the ultimate bridge-builder. In the process of touring seven years with Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Ellie began writing her own songs. They were often inspired by the lives of those they encountered on the road, at Young Life camps, and by their community in Nashville.

"When I think about what I want to be doing, it's singing truth into the darkness. Life is hard, and I've walked through some heart-breaking things with friends. But when we're walking right up to that darkness with God's truth and light and life, there's a sense of hope breaking in. I want to help encourage the wounded and weary in our church pews, that's what I want to be a part of."
