On , to commemorate his 20 year musical career milestone, underground folk legend Malcolm
Holcombe is releasing The RCA Sessions. The set will have international digital distribution through Proper Music
Spanning the years 1994 to 2014, The RCA Sessions comprises 16 cuts in a CD/DVD retrospective that includes
tracks from each of his previous 10 full length albums and 1 EP. Unlike the usual anthology of original recordings,
Holcombe re-recorded the selected songs at the legendary RCA Studios in Nashville, TN in the fall of 2014.
Included is the live performance favorite, "Mouth Harp Man", which is exclusive to this release, as well as well as
the popular tracks "Goin' Home", "Who Carried You", and a very special duet with Irish folk great, Maura
O'Connell, of Holcombe's classic, "A Far Cry From Here". The band members, who have all frequently performed
with Malcolm in the studio as well as for live performances, are: Jared Tyler (dobro, electric guitar, lap steel,
vocals); David Roe Rorick ( upright bass, arco), Tammy Rogers (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Ken Coomer (drums,
percussion), Jellyroll Johnson (harmonica), and Siobhan Maher Kennedy (vocals).
To represent Holcombe's live performance range- from the intimate nature of solo acoustic, to the much lauded duo
configuration with long-standing multi-instrumentalist Jared Tyler, to the energy and intensity of his full band showsthe
CD/DVD set includes all of the above-mentioned musical configurations. Cut as live performances in-studio, these
tracks capture the spirit of Holcombe's incendiary concert performances and timeless songwriting.
As this is the first time Malcolm Holcombe has released a DVD performance, it is sure to become a much
appreciated addition to both long time fans, as well as the perfect introduction for the uninitiated. The RCA
Sessions is not an end, but a culmination of work that spotlights the artistic mastery of one of the most unique and
irreplaceable musicians working today in the contemporary folk scene.
