Malcolm Holcombe & Jared Tyler
Saturday 18.04.2015 - 21:30
Galicia Musikbar Olten
What an honor to welcome Malcolm Holcombe in Olten! A concert made possible through collaboration between Next Stop Olten and Galicia Musikbar.
Raised in North Carolina's Blueridge Mountains, highly praised by songwriter colleagues, music fans and critics alike, Malcolm Holcombe has been an insider tip to this day. "Haunted country, acoustic blues and rugged folk" - the music magazine Rolling Stone names only a few of the ingredients of Holcombes sound.
His latest oeuvre, "Pitiful Blues", is a coherent album with songs full of unpolished beauty and power. It is co-produced by Jared Tyler who for more than 15 years has been working with Holcombe and will also accompany him to Olten.
Jared Tyler about his contribution to "Pitiful Blues":
„For this album I had to question quite a few things I thought I knew about recording technique. Compared to the usual standards our method was lo-fi. But sometimes the sound of a microphone, a guitar or a singer can be closer to the original than the result of the most elaborate studio technology. It's a great honor for me to be part of this album and - more importantly - a part of Malcolms music. I hope that listeners will be deeply moved by the sound of the Carolina hills emanating from Malcolms stories and songs.“
