Family by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors

Family by Drew Holcomb is an addictive song with the most catchy guitar hook. There is a simplicity in the track that speaks louder than words. I love the connections in the lower range in Drew’s vocal and the full complement of instrumentation and percussion. The song sounds big, an homage to the family Drew comes from.

Raised in Memphis, Drew comes from a family that counts over 40 grandkids in just the first generation. He goes on to share:

Everyone has a family, for better or worse. No one can inspire more loyalty and more frustration than blood. I wanted to write a song that reflected the beauty, chaos, disfunction, and hilarity that family can be.

Drew Holcomb has been a roadwarrior over the years, playing and touring relentlessly. With songs that have this kind of energy and create instant connections with his fans. Drew’s latest release, Dragons, has gone on to receive critical acclaim (check out this review by Rolling Stone Country: Drew Holcomb Quietly Became One of Americana’s Most Popular Stars) and really push him beyond the indie field of artists, however, I remember listening to some of the early work and think this is the kind of musician that deserves to get some more respect and attention.

Family features an eclectic array of instrumentation and musical feel. I think the folksy dance vibe in the track really promotes this as being a standout at main stage folk festivals or any outdoor late evening concert. I love the earthy vibe, the bare feet, and the rollicking good vibes that the song emotes.
