Not sure about this guy - anyone know anything?
Biography by Erik Hage Malcolm Holcombe is an acclaimed singer/songwriter in the insurgent country/folk vein who grew up in Weaverville, N.C. The release of his debut album, 1996's A Hundred Lies — which featured his moody poetry, country blues guitar, and rumbling baritone — was met with acclaim from USA Today and Rolling Stone's David Fricke, among others, and garnered comparisons to folks such as John Prine and Tom Waits. (The album was originally recorded for Geffen and then re-released on Hip-O). He has also earned raves in print from such Nashville notables as Lucinda Williams. Holcombe has also played as a duo with Durham, NC, native Valorie Miller. The two have toured nationally with Shelby Lynne and opened for artists such as Merle Haggard and Wilco. 1994 A Far Cry From Here - IO 1999 A Hundred Lies - Hip-O 2003 Another Wisdom - Purple Girl
this song makes me want to go to one of those bars with the saw dust and peanut shells on the floors and people drink their whiskey straight up. No glasses served with that bottle of beer, either. No screwing around, this is a bar you go to when you want to get DRUNK. Period. Don't know why, but this guy and Tom Waits inspire such thoughts in my head.
While we're on the theme of "home" in this playlist, perhaps Home Town by Joe Jackson would be a good way to wrap it up..?

Yeah, that may be it! The opening always reminds me of Prine.

Be right back. After this and Tom Waits, i've got an itchin' for some throat lozenges.
Can you say "depressive". Seriously, I'm tired enough... Go Home.
Is it me or is the playlist not shuffling much lately?

The harp makes it, if you ask me.
Mikey likes it!
i love when RP introduces me to something new and interesting.
What do you know, placing him directly after Tom Waits makes him sound downright melodic. I like 'em both.
Never heard of this guy, i like him a lot. Thanks for playing it. Makes me think I oughta upload a couple of Jon Dee Graham tunes.

Malcolm Holcombe is the real deal and favorite of just about everyone who's ever seen him. You can't help but be touched by him and his live performances. I would highly recommend every recording you can get your hands on - and don't miss an opportunity to catch this musical genius live. Laurie
Amen, Laurie, that is the truth. His recordings don't have the same spark that his presence does, though. That magic just can't be captured, it's truly an amazing thing to see in person.
