Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors Go Home With New Album

(Radio.com) Mixing folk inspirations and southern rock, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors have been kicking around for a decade as a working band. With a tidal wave of cultural interest in folk and Americana music coming to a head as the Lumineers and Mumford & Sons dominated GRAMMY nominations this year, they could finally have found their time to shine in the spotlight.

Singer/songwriter Drew Holcomb sat down with Radio.com to talk about their new album, Good Light, which was penned as a love letter to his home state of Tennessee and his wife who was pregnant with their first child, a daughter they named Emmylou, during the writing and recording of the album.

"We've been this under-the-radar touring band, mainly in the southeast, for the last 7 years," Holcomb said, in case you thought you might be about to hear the story of an overnight success. "That's started to break open in the last two years with our last album, Chasing Someday. This album [ is way more of the kind of record I always wanted to make. I wrote 40 songs for it and whittled it down to 12."

"We went to my hometown in Memphis and recored at Ardent Studios, which is this beautiful, historic place where [Bob] Dylan has recorded and a lot of the great Memphis soul records were made. We camped out there for two weeks and really dug in and tracked a lot of stuff live. It felt like, for the first time in a decade of a career in music that it was like, 'Ah, this is why we started doing this!'" Read more and watch video interview clips and a music video here.
