Acclaimed singer-songwriter, Malcolm Holcombe, whose "heartfelt baritone" (NPR) delivers "haunted country, acoustic blues, and rugged folk" (Rolling Stone), released his 14th studio album, Another Black Hole, on February 12, 2016.
Produced by Grammy winning producer and engineer, Ray Kennedy, and Brian Brinkerhoff, Another Black Hole features Holcombe's rasping vocals and bright, percussive guitar accentuating his insightful lyrics. "It is Malcolm's perception of the world that make his songs hit you like a gunpowder blast. His gruff and tough delivery are a primordial power full of grit, spit, and anthropomorphic expression," says Kennedy.
Recorded at Room and Board Studios in Nashville, TN, the 10 song set features longtime musical compatriots including Jared Tyler (dobro, baritone guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmony vocals), David Roe (upright and electric bass), Ken Coomer (drums and percussion), and special guests Tony Joe White (electric guitar), Future Man (percussion), and Drea Merritt (vocal harmony).
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, Holcombe is highly regarded and recognized by contemporaries in Americana music, including Emmylou Harris, Wilco, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams. An "emotionally captivating" (Isthmus), performer, Holcombe has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, Leon Russell, Wilco, Shelby Lynne, Cat Power, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
