Album Review

Malcolm Holcombe's debut album Hundred Lies is an impressive collection of original songs that highlight his ability to craft rootsy, heartfelt contmeporary country songs that sound part of a tradition, yet fresh. At times, the production is a bit too clean for the music, and there are times that Holcombe sounds a little unsure as a performer, but overall, the songs are sturdy and memorable, and Hundred Lies indicates that he's growing into a peformer the equal of his songs.

A Locals Thoughts

Malcolm is a powrful powerful man. I hate the singer/songwriter label we put on folks. I have to disagree with the Album Review from ITunes, he sounds as he should be. Unless you see him live, you won't understand. There is an old spirit to him like he just walked out of a logging camp from a 2 week shift and is ready to tell you about it. Support this music, it moves me, and most of the mountains around here. All of his music is worth listening to for a long time.

A Hundred Lies, Listen a hundred times

Although Malcolm Holcombe is far to honest and rootsy to be considered "Nashville," this album is the one that gets many hooked on the man and his pure soul-channeling. The haunting title track is a foreshadowing of what was to come for Holcombe's Nashville career....the machine sorta chewed him up and spit him out, in this reviewer's opinion because Malcolm is TOO MUCH TO SWALLOW! The musical novella "Who Carried You" is a sonic pageturner showcasing MH's ability to spin a vivid, sturdy yarn. The gravel-gospel of "Back On The Edge Of Town" grows on you like hot-sauce at a church pot-luck. Check Malcolm Holcombe out. Rumor has it that he is about to release a new record recorded in Asheville, NC.

what a performance!

I have just seen Malcom for the first time and had actually never heard of him. I agree with the review that he is an old spirit. Saw him in an intimate setting in Hoboken, NJ and he was very powerful and haunting! Yet, his music is beautiful. He has definetly lived life far different from me and this clearly is real stuff to him. He is not a wannabe. Dressed in white is a beautiful song that i first became familiar with from Jonah Smith, who happened to share the stage with him last night. A must see if he comes around your neck of the woods and this will be a great intro to him, but listening will not give you the intimacy and intensity of seeing him perform.
