Malcolm Holcombe: For The Mission Baby

Malcolm Holcombe has one of the roughest voices in music. You can almost smell the nicotine coming out of speakers. For The Mission Baby is the follow-up of his 2007 album Gamblin' House and this time around the upright bass is more prominent in the mix, making his toe-tapping songs like Leonard's Pigpen and title track For The Misssion Baby more powerful.

Holcombe digs deep, coming up with impressive slow songs like Another One Gone and Straight and Tall. For The Mission Baby is an album that urges the listener to take notice of his loved ones.
