Discovering Malcolm Holcombe


This is the kind of “discovery” that can make you feel out of touch. Malcolm Holcombe has released eight recordings and has played at any number of well known venues. The funny thing is, by today’s measure, he could still be categorized as undiscovered if you go by the number views on his YouTube videos – I think +13,000 was the highest count.

As the saying goes, Malcolm Holcombe has more talent in his little finger than__________has in their whole body. (Feel free to fill in the blank with the latest flavor of the month.) The passion with which he plays and sings makes you wonder if he is still in the room with you or if his songs have taken over his body and are just using him as a conduit.
