Al Holbrook can weave a golden song from a piece of commonplace wheat. Few are as versatile. But versatility is not just the desire to change; it’s the capability to do so well, authentically. Indeed, Holbrook is one of those enviable folks who needs nothing but his voice to woo an audience or whisper a heart to a faster pace. Supply the song man with a keyboard and the possibilities just increase. Music affects us on a scientific, cellular level and Holbrook instinctively knows how to get our DNA swaying, jumping and twirling.
Holbrook, who has filled south Seattle saloons with sound, p ... layed prestigious stages in Los Angeles and has used his musical whit and wisdom on giant ships all over the world, is a compelling, believable storyteller. Few are as free as a fairytale and Holbrook is of that mystical sort. Born in Dayton, Ohio, the famed American Songwriter Magazine calls him the “international musician of mystery.” Holbrook, who boasts a gravel scratch voice like the sound of a family member coming up the drive, coming home, is knowable only by close listeners.
He is a showman, a friend. He is the candle flame on your dinner table. But more than all that, he is a teacher. Fluent in jazz, rag, rock, blues and old time, Holbrook is a healer from his sonic pulpit. He can rock you to sleep or rock you like a green New Orleans Hurricane drink. If you find yourself in a tower locked away distraught with the way the fates have shaped your fortunes, call on the international musician of mystery and all that saved up straw will be fit for wearing for the mirror on a night of newfound, special independence. -“Jake Utti”
