"Not quite country, somewhere beyond folk, Holcombe's music is a kind of blues in motion, mapping backwoods corners of the heart." David Fricke Rolling Stone Magazine
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Malcolm Holcombe is being recognized by the contemporary U.S and European folk/americana community as a performer of national stature, and an uncommonly unique guitarist/vocalist about whom Rolling Stone Magazine says: "Haunted country, acoustic blues and rugged folk all meet [here]..."
A new 12 song Malcolm Holcombe CD, Gamblin' House, was released January 29, 2008. There is strong and positive press surrounding this CD, including feature articles in the January/February 2008 No Depression Magazine, and in The Wall Streeet Journal(2/14/08), and rave reviews from Billboard Magazine, Harp Magazine, and Paste Magazine.
Gamblin' House was in the top 20 of the Americana Music Association chart for 9 straight weeks.
A 5 song EP by singer-songwriter Malcolm Holcombe, entitled Wager, was released on October 9, 2007 as a companion piece to the 2008 CD.
Holcombe, who recently signed with new indy label Echo Mountain Records, went into Echo Mountain Studios to record his first CD release for the label with a wealth of new material. With Grammy Award winning producer RAY KENNEDY, at the helm, and highly notable musicians Kenny Malone(drums, percussion), David Roe Rorick (bass) and Ed Snodderly(dobro, fiddle, banjo) rounding out the ensemble, Wager and Gamblin' House resound with a fresh take on Holcombe's highly distinctive music and lyricism.
