Malcolm Holcombe


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Malcolm Holcombe is an American acoustic / folk musician based in North Carolina.

Try as you might to use other adjectives, when you write about Holcombe and his work, you always come back to rugged and rustic. His visage appears to be carved of granite, and his voice is a sculpture crafted of tree bark and discarded railroad iron. His words and images cling to you for hours, even days, like wood smoke. His is a sound that combines harmonica-blessed folk, acoustic blues, stringband country, and smalltown-bred soul.

    Just heard him play a couple songs on the New Orleans radio station WWOZ. Most excellent.

    Wow. If you still have a chance to catch him on his current tour: do. Cancel your appointments, come home early from holiday, have your baby another day, whatever it takes: just go. His performance is one of great intensity and integrity, and so is his new album.

    The new album 'For The Mission Baby' is an absolute triumph, Holcombe at the top of his craft. I love, love love it.
