REVIEW: Zandi Holup Makes Her Big Loud Debut with “Gas Station Flowers”

One of Big Loud’s latest signed artists/songwriters, Zandi Holup, is a refreshing new face in the country music scene.​

Growing up in a musical family, the Pennsylvania transplant and now Nashville resident is no stranger to the music industry. In pursuit of her passion, she began sharing her unreleased, original songs on social media (“Mountain Man” & “I Don’t Like Myself in Love” put her music on the map for me) and amassed a collective online fanbase of 500K+. Also an avid songwriter, “she’s written over 150 songs in the past few years—with her first independent release, “Wait for You” topping the Spotify “Fresh Finds” playlist” (PR team). It was these ongoing efforts and consistently putting her authentic self out there that eventually led to her signing with Big Loud. Her debut release under the label comes as “Gas Station Flowers”– a track that paints a vivid portrait of what it feels like to settle in a relationship.
