  • About This Album

    Described by the New York Times as “a quilt of musical crosscurrents,” containing “echoes of American hymn tunes, dissonant jazz riffs, folkish piano and fragments of rock,” Robin Holcomb’s self-titled debut for Nonesuch weaves together her myriad influences and experiences to create a powerful, intensely personal musical statement. She is joined by a backing band that includes Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz, who help to create an album Rolling Stone calls “smart, lovely, and ambitious.”
