The critics say about Robin's music:
Achingly painful and suddenly tender, Robin Holcomb’s songs mirror a beguiling, bewildering world.
Wif Stegner, Rolling Stone

Satie goes to Appalachia, Morricone goes to the Knitting Factory, and you, dear art-folk fan, die and go to heaven.
Village Voice

Ms. Holcomb has done something remarkable here: she has created a new American regionalism, spun from many threads - country rock, minimalism, Civil War songs, Baptist hymns, Appalachian folk tunes, even the polytonal music of Charles Ives. The music that results is as elegantly simple as a Shaker quilt, and no less beautiful.
Mark Dery, The New York Times

Excellent and baffling, just as it should be.
Andrew Martin, Q Magazine

...refreshing, gentle, intense, honest, original and just heart-stoppingly beautiful.
Hearsay (UK)

Hers is an unsettling, utterly original vision.
Entertainment Weekly

(capable of) summing up the monumental in the simplest of terms, willing to challenge our minds, our ears, and our hearts.

Holcomb snatches up the pop song in her long, loving arms and spirits it off on a breathless joyride through places and emotional states that it rarely has reached before.
