Pitiful Blues


" 'Everybody's a songwriter', as I was told by Tony Arata in Nashville some 25 years ago or so. Human's are storytellers, some just damn liars, the truth lives beyond songs and poetry, fables, folk lore weighed down by human embellishments, hearsays and emotions. True emotions don't lie, crocodile tears and teeth grinding from withdrawals of what? - pure greed. I struggle with truth and lies and motives, and this pitiful blues project is a spit of the struggle - past and present. Only the grace of God allows us a path to decide which is which." - Malcolm Holcombe (May 16th, 2014). Produced by Jared Tyler and Malcolm Holcombe. Musicians Include: Arthur Thompson - Drums; Matt Hayes - Upright Bass; Jared Tyler - Dobro, Mandolin, Baritone Electric Guitar, Ebo and Harmony Vocals; Luke Bulla - Fiddle; Patrick "Paddy" Ryan - Drums on "'Words Not Spoken". "...strong, gravelly and authentic." MOJO "Back porch blues and lo-fi Americana with a lyrical bite.....Acoustic blues never sounded so relevant." The Blues Magazine "the imagery allied to Holcombe's throaty holler and robust guitar picking - enhanced by dobro, guitars, fiddle, bass and drums - paints a detailed, thoroughly compelling picture from someone who's been under the radar far too long." The Herald "Listening to a Malcolm Holcombe album is an experience like few others. It's mesmerizing, haunting, and will stay with you for a long time. Everyone should do it and this is a good a place to start as any." R2 "With the integrity to make you believe that he has lived every word of the ten self-written tracks, I can only add that Malcolm Holcombe is the real deal." Maverick "all original songs, tales of the haunted souls and moments of enlightenment." Lonesome Highway
