Today, singer/songwriter Christina Holmes has officially released her third studio album, The Beautiful Struggle, via her label, Cove House Records. The long awaited 11-track album is her most personal, passionate, and powerful work today. Christina manages to thread together relatable stories of love and life through her confessional lyricism and instrumental proficiency on guitar, bass, djembe, and piano. The album’s first single, “Everybody Knows” hints at her impressive musicality, looping vocals on top of djembe. Meanwhile, “Rise” pairs a bright guitar lean and organic percussion with her warm delivery. The Beautiful Struggle is now available via all digital retailers HERE .
“I’m so excited The Beautiful Struggle is finally here!” shares Christina. “This album was a long time in the making and I hope that everyone feels the heart and soul that was poured into it. I want everyone to know that even when there is a lot of bad going on in their life or the world, they can always find the beauty in everything. I hope people walk away with the strength to know they can keep going on even in the darkest of days.”
New Jersey-born and Rhode Island-based singer, songwriter, and Cove House Records founder Christina Holmes threads together stories of love and life on her third full-length, The Beautiful Struggle. The music magnifies a universal journey. After keeping a childhood songwriting ambition a secret, she went from braving open mics to brightening the spirits of bedridden hospital patients alongside the charity Musicians On Call. Following a seminal “Amateur Night” gig at the Apollo, she dropped her 2013 debut, Peace, Love, & C. Holmes and canvased the country on a sold-out tour with Trevor Hall. 2017’s Stand Up—produced by Warren Huart [Colbie Caillat, James Blunt]—would be the first official release through Cove House Records. In the aftermath of the release, she garnered the acclaim of Paste, Relix, and Jam in the Van and toured with everyone from Hall to Xavier Rudd and Nahko of Medicine for the People in addition to booking her own national headline run.
