  • About This Album

    Holcomb’s second release on Nonesuch, Rockabye consists of original compositions that, according to Rolling Stone, create an “eerie landscape that is both deeply traditional and avant-garde.” The album also features performances from Wayne Horvitz and Bill Frisell, among others, helping to create “a powerful work, knotting strands of jazz and bluegrass with lyrics that hang in the air like smoke.”
