Throughout These Holy Days, Ash’s soprano voice is the star of the show, and it should be. Her effortless delivery evokes elements of soul, folk, pop, and just a hint of twang. Ash brings a bit of a throwback feel to the album, but never sounds antiquated or stale. Her band is tight, and the arrangements are able to remain interesting without stealing the spotlight from Ash’s rich voice. In short, These Holy Days makes it clear that Anna Ash is a special talent with the foundation for widespread appeal.
