Chuck Mcdowell from ESOEBO hosts the EOP Writer Series. Joining Chuck for the March 29th, 2019 show is with Malcolm Holcombe, Walter Parks and Wyatt Espalin.
Chuck is a Georgia-based singer-songwriter and frontman for the band ESOEBO. He is a former winner of Eddie Owen Presents: Songwriters Open Mic Shootout.
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Malcolm Holcombe is being recognized by the contemporary U.S and European folk/americana community as a performer of national stature, and an uncommonly unique guitarist/vocalist about whom Rolling Stone Magazine says: "Haunted country, acoustic blues and rugged folk all meet [here]..."
Vocalist and Swamp finger picking guitarist. Can be heard solo and with others including his band, Swamp Cabbage.
"Walter Parks is an extraordinary singer whose songs can break your heart as well as get you dancing. Lyrical and political, personal and otherworldly at the same time, transcendent as well as down to earth, Walter is a musical treasure, an artist of the highest caliber. To hear him is to be lifted into a mystical sphere. I adore him." - Judy Collins
Armed with a guitar and a desire to write songs, he paired with Cobi Ferguson to form the acclaimed Americana duo, Trees Leave. Combining electric guitar with traditional bluegrass roots led to a noticeably unique sound and a growing fan base. Having years of touring under their belts and two successful albums, Run (2008) and The Gospel of Hurt (2010), it was time for Cobi to settle down, and Wyatt to find a new setting fit for a more personal level of songwriting.His debut album, The Pardon, provides ten glimpses into breakups, burdens, colorful britches, and the light on the other side of it all.
