Malcolm Holcombe

Wed. March 27 @ 7:30



Acclaimed North Carolina-based singer-songwriter Malcolm Holcombe, “a troubadour seemingly from another age” (Elmore), will release his 13th studio album, Come Hell or High Water (Singular Recordings), on September 14, 2018.


Featuring collaborations with celebrated roots-music couple Iris DeMent and Greg Brown, the 13-track album is trademark Malcolm. Chiseled out of a life abundant in both hard times and sweet ones, with an ache of loveliness and loneliness, of torment and hope, woven throughout, his songs paint vivid portraits, turning them into haunting, brooding, moving affairs.


Recorded at Dagotown Recorders in Boston, MACome Hell or High Water was produced by Marco Giovino and Jared Tyler. Holcombe was joined in studio by Jared Tyler (mandola, dobro, classical guitar, harmony vocals), Marco Giovino (drums, percussion), Iris DeMent (harmony vocals, piano) and Greg Brown (harmony vocals).  


His songs are so vivid that you can almost brush off the dust after you listen to them. They are the Dashboard Cam View of The Cultural Armageddon...the dark underbelly of a country with a severe identity crisis that's all but lost it's acknowledgement of the human condition.
William Hurley, The Extended Play Sessions


“This world is full of goodness and a lot of positivity, but it seems like I can relate to the underdog and the downtrodden, for obvious reasons,” says Holcombe. “Those types of songs seem to strike a nerve more deeply than the ‘Yellow Brick Road,’ because I think it’s a struggle for all of us to try to do the next right thing. Some people have the spiritual chemistry to be able to achieve that more easily than others, but I think we all struggle with getting up in the morning and trying to live in our own skin.”
