Editorial Reviews

Product Description

''Into the Dark Unknown'' is an apparition. It is the fourth critically acclaimed album by Holcombe Waller, reflecting six years of itinerant wanderings under the Pacific Northwest's skies, the slow silvering of feathers and beards, and an animalistic intuition of where to find fresh shoots poking up through the melting snow. Lay some lavender across the dashboard, slide a water-smoothed stone into a pocket and set off with your best traveler's sweater.

Review

Holcombe Waller will be among the nominees for a MacArthur Fellowship pretty soon. What else can you say about someone who's obviously - and trust us, we wouldn't use this dreaded word unless we had to - a genius? --San Francisco Weekly

He's got the crazy-beautiful, four-octave voice of an androgynous seraph. Waller renders songs of romantic holocaust with a nakedness that can't be taught. --Kate Sullivan, SPIN Magazine

For melodic sweep, the prize goes to Holcombe Waller, whose self-released Extravagant Gesture is a small pop epic. --Ann Powers

Whether you know Holcombe Waller's work or not, this album will absolutely blow you away! There is humor mixed in with enchanting tales of love, heartache, and everything in between. Holcombe's voice will take you to another world. There is really not another artist like him anywhere. On top of all that, in only the second track, you will find the greatest song lyrics ever written. I won't spoil it for you, but trust me on this one. Buy this album, and if you ever get the chance, see him perform live. You will not be disappointed.

This album is so beautiful, words fail when trying to describe it.
Holcombe Waller's voice is the voice of an angel and his lyrics describe love and angst as well as any songwriter currently on the planet. This album grew on me slowly, and it has become an obsession - I have played virtually nothing else since I got it, and it still brings tears to my eyes. Honestly, get it. It's stunning.

Holcombe Waller has outdone himself. This album brought tears to my eyes - his gorgeous voice and beautiful lyrics are unparalleled. I have shared his album with many friends of all ages and they all call me thanking me profusely for introducing them to his music. This is not an album to be missed - definitely give it a whirl.

Oh Holcombe, you gifted, golden-tongued siren! "Into the Dark Unknown" is one of the most beautifully crafted albums i've heard in many years -- that artful marriage of powerful lyricism with rare technical virtuosity.

The arrangements are downright brilliant, being multi-layered while remaining intimate, and each track resonating meaningfully somewhere along the spectrum of feeling that we gain from life's experiences.

"into the dark unknown" is like a favorite shirt i keep returning to because it just fits so well, and that's a quite a comfort.

No one does it all like Holcombe Waller in Into The Dark Unknown. Experimental yet, timeless in style. Angelic vocals bring the listener to another dimension. Lyrics that can pierce your soul with truths of life's complexities. Whether driving my car, or relaxing at home, it's always a great time to listen to this album.

Holcombe Waller is one of the most talented and original musicians working today. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform "Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan" live, and it completely blew me away. This album is lyrical and stirring and relevant and brilliant. I adore it as I do all of Holcombe's work.
