Canyon, by Ellie Holcomb, CD
- Artist: Ellie Holcomb
After taking her first ever trip to the Grand Canyon, singer and songwriter Ellie Holcomb was so inspired that the metaphor she witnessed lingered on her heart for months. Canyon is the result of the passion that sparked in her heart after witnessing that wonder.
"I felt like I was looking at a living picture of all of our hearts. Layer upon layer of loss, hearts split wide open by the pain of it all, but there we were in the deepest part of the canyon being carried by a river," Ellie Holcomb told JubileeCast. "It was also HOT outside, like 110 degrees, but we never got too hot because there was this freezing cold water carrying us through the deepest part of that giant crevice in the earth. It struck me as I jumped into the river to cool off for the first time on that trip...there's a river running through our deepest pain, even in those moments when the chaos of life sends the temperature soaring, there's an ever-present current of love to cool us down and carry us on when it feels like we just can't take the heat any longer."
"Every time I listen to this record, I want to run... fast!" Holcomb explained. "I'm not really a runner, but these songs, born out of a season of a lot of personal and global loss, feel like a soundtrack to healing and hope, and they fire me up! They feel like a rally cry to remember that while we've known a deeper sorrow, there's a higher hope!"
