Acclaimed singer-songwriter, Malcolm Holcombe, whose “heartfelt baritone” (NPR) delivers “haunted country, acoustic blues, and rugged folk” (Rolling Stone), will release his 15th studio album, Pretty Little Troubles, April 7, 2017.

Produced by Darrell Scott and Brian Brinkerhoff, Pretty Little Troubles features Holcombe’s rasping vocals and bright, percussive guitar accentuating his insightful lyrics. “Malcolm Holcombe is an artist of deep mystery and high art – he is who I listen to, and have for over 20 years – this record goes on my list of “working with my heroes” – all the goods that I value in songs and artistry are in Malcolm…the real deal.”- Darrell Scott

Isis is excited to host this talented Western North Carolina songwriter. Jared Tyler will be opening and performing with Malcolm

The acts of writing songs and playing music have always been hopeful ones, however bleak the subject matter of the songs might be. With Down the River, Malcolm Holcombe has once again given us a handful of songs that are testimony to the human spirit. In these songs, the old truths still hold. Love, the inner life, music, these are eternal verities and will outlast the trickery and chicanery of those who would turn us against each other. In these strange and troubled times, we need Holcombe’s witness as much as we ever have, and it is our good fortune to receive it.

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]…”
