You could glean a great deal about singer/songwriter Drew Holcomb and his wife/bandmate/occasional co-writer Ellie from the fact that they named their first child Emmylou. The Holcombs’ daughter arrived almost simultaneously with Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors’ 2013 album Good Light, a set that was ecstatically received by the band’s zealous fan base and positively reviewed by an increasingly jaded coterie of music critics. 

The band’s most recent effort, Medicine, was released in January to a similarly enthusiastic response, perhaps solid evidence that Holcomb and his crew have become masters of the mid-tempo Pop/Rock/Soul/Folk/Country groove that has been their hallmark from the very start.



Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors play Thursday at 20th Century Theater. Tickets/more info here.
