Settin' The Moon On Fire

by Chris Holcombe

If Delbert McClinton and Bonnie Raitt had a love child that was raised (and then neglected) by Linda Ronstadt and Marc Cohn (you know, the "Walking In Memphis" guy), then this is what it would sound like.

Album Notes
It shouldn't work....

A young man with a notebook full of descriptive lyrics and a head full of melodies that combine blues, pop, and soul. A keen eye observing human behavior and emotion. A simple voice that roots out the subtle nuance of a phrase.

In today's pop climate, it shouldn't work. But this Award-Winning* singer/songwriter makes it work.

Holcombe's first collection of songs won the Semi-Finals 2003 Disc Makers Southeast Independent World Series and includes the latin-tinged blues of "Liar's Game" and the wistful poignancy of "Listen To The Children."

"At various times Holcombe’s pieces have been autobiographical, philosophical or historical, but he’s probably best known for the gritty tune One Too Many in Love which he co-wrote with Michael McDonald." ~ Nashville City Paper

*2009 HMMA for Best Acoustic Folk Song.

Tina Tutt

Where have all the cowboys gone?
Lonely Grey Door is a smash anthem that makes me wanna get my toes and fingers into the porcelain. It can strike down to the very core of baked lays. Chris has busted my ears of sister shubert. Where have the rolls gone? Dunno, Chris may have nabbed them with his lullabic sounds. Moon on Fire is a ballad for the homeless. Yogi couldn't steal this picnic basket from me, cuz i luv it. Little Miss Muffet musta sat on this Tuffet. Chris is nothing short of a hopeful veteran.

Settin the Moon on Fire has something for everyone
With an interesting mix of styles and rhythms Chris Holcombe delivers a CD that everyone can enjoy. Great tunes like Strange, Settin the Moon on Fire, and Listen to the Children make it obvious that this strong writer has a bright future ahead of him.


infectuous melodies and insightful lyrics. a damn good songwriter.


Good writing, good singing, good times...
This album is a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll... and (fortunately) has nothing to do with the Osmonds. Chris uses so many influences in his songwriting, thereby keeping this album really interesting to listen to. The record is well crafted, as are the individual songs. Bravo. You should hear these songs live.... he'll rock your socks right off.

Michelle Schauer

It's velvet...yes...that's it...
If you're one of those listeners like enjoys the warm sound of saucy vocals and smooth instrumentals, then...what are you waiting for?! You need to hear this! This is fresh songwriting my friends...wicked awesome.
