¶  "Mixes full-throttle Americana music with an introspective singer/songwriter approach. It sounds like the South. It sounds like Tennessee." — American Songwriter
¶  "Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, praised for their unique Tennessee brand of Americana music, are gearing up for the release of their latest album. Be sure to pick up Good Light,"' Paste Magazine       ///        2013 album from the critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter and his band. Holcomb earned a considerable following after his 2005 album, Washed in Blue, was released and had multiple TV placements on Lifetime's Army Wives and Showtimes's United States of Tara, and A&E's The Cleaner.  /  "The anticipation for Drew Holcomb’s fourth studio album, his third with band The Neighbors, is finally drawing to an end. The release, Good Light, was recorded in Memphis at Ardent Studios, and displays Holcomb’s strength as a songwriter while lyrically celebrating his devotion to wife and bandmate, Ellie, and daughter Emmylou. Many of the tracks read like love letters.

¶  “These lyrics are all quick images that to me are part of the way a love can be defined,” said Holcomb about track “Nothing But Trouble.” “California is where Ellie and I honeymooned, Wildflower is our favorite Tom Petty record that we love to spin on vinyl. East of Eden is both of our favorite Steinbeck book. They are parts of us.”
¶  “Another Man’s Shoes” kicks things off with an effortless feel, recalling a similar sense of phrasing one might find in a Mason Jennings song. Holcomb’s wife, Ellie, lends a soulful punch on vocals before it returns to the chorus: “Everyone’s got their own set of troubles / Everyone’s got their own set of blues / Everyone’s got their own set of struggles / Walk a mile in another man’s shoes.”
¶  The quartet from Tennessee has a tender touch in crafting songs, and the prettiest of the bunch may be “Wine We Drink.” The tune begins with Holcomb offering vulnerable vocals while softly plucking at his 1934 Gibson Archtop, as his wife later joins in with breathtaking—and breathy—vocals.
¶  “Nothing Like a Woman,” the lone “rocker” on the release is a nice boot-scootin’ tune, with straight ahead stomping from the bass and drums accompanied by light honky tonk on the piano."      ///      

Review by Nathan Rodriguez; February 20, 2013 (Rating: ***)  

¶  Good Light, the fourth release from Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, features a dozen tracks that, broadly speaking, range from upbeat to cheery.

¶  Good Light succeeds in flashes of minimalistic beauty, but falls short of delivering a knockout punch. The simplest explanation is the lyrics leave little to the imagination (See “I love you, I do”). By avoiding imagery and metaphor almost entirely, Holcomb does a fine job describing where he’s at, but falls short of transcending a particular context. This saccharine, heart-on-the-sleeve style of songwriting is kind of like a stick of gum: nice, kinda refreshing, but of fleeting resonance.
