Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
Some artists are able to articulate a vision at the very beginning of their career, while others hone their craft over time, growing into their vision as they mature. “I am definitely in the latter category,” explains Drew Holcomb, a Tennessee-born, duck-hunting, French-speaking, bourbon-drinking, book-collecting, golf-playing Eagle Scout with a master's degree in Divinity from Scotland’s University of St Andrews (he wrote his dissertation on “Springsteen and American Redemptive Imagination”) who has spent the better part of the past decade as a professional musician. Since releasing their first album, 2005’s "Washed In Blue," Drew and his band The Neighbors (Ellie Holcomb, Nathan Dugger, Rich Brinsfield) have toured with The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos, and The North Mississippi Allstars, among others. Drew's latest, "Good Light," arrives shortly after his 30th birthday and the birth of his first child, daughter Emmylou (named for, you guessed it ...), with wife and bandmate Ellie Holcomb. “This album perfectly tells the story for a new stage in my life,” explains Drew. “I have been through really difficult things. When I was 17, I lost my younger brother, and have lived through the grief of that great absence. On the other hand, I have experienced the joy of being married to the girl I always wanted, and have been loved really well by her. ”¦ Each of us has a story, and it’s the only one we can tell. With this album I’m telling my story, in the hope that it helps other people tell theirs.”
