Raw, real and exuding a groove you can use, Christina Holmes is the real deal.

Narada Michael Walden has produced some of the finest talent in music today. Peace Love & Christina Holmes certainly deserves her place as a new shooter in the pop oriented female vocal talent pool. No one sounds like Holmes. A fresh face and a fresh voice to give the pop music world the kick in the pants it has long needed. 16 original tracks that show Holmes is as prolific a song writer as she is a vocalist.
There are a lot of people in the industry that speak of paying your dues and Holmes has played the small clubs, bars and coffee houses but is proof positive that length of time served and competency do not necessarily go hand in hand. A clear and pristine voice to go with some positive energy and some impressive instrumental talent. Organic, eclectic and wildly addictive finds Holmes positioned to make some serious noise on the contemporary music scene. Narada Michael Walden has allowed Holmes to be herself, this is not music sanitized for your protection but the coming out party for a female vocalist with chops galore.
Criticism? Too short...One of the better releases for 2014. A rising star!
