Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors at The Orpheum 

After a decade or so as a performer, Memphis-bred and now Nashville-based singer-songwriter Drew Holcomb seems to be coming into his own. Holcomb and his band, the Neighbors, have built up a successful touring schedule, including opening slots for high-profile acts such as the Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, and Susan Tedeschi. And they've been very successful on the licensing front, particularly with their song "Live Forever," which got a significant placement on an episode of the television series Parenthood and then won Holcomb an Emmy for its use in a spectacular National Basketball Association television ad last Christmas. Holcomb and his crew return to the bandleader's hometown this week to open for South Carolina Christian rockers Needtobreathe at the Orpheum and also on the strength of a relaxed, confidant new album, Good Light, which was recorded locally last year at Ardent Studios and released in February. Good Light is a record of warm contentment, paying tribute to Holcomb's wife and bandmate, his daughter, and his Tennessee home. Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors join Needtobreathe at the Orpheum on Tuesday, April 2nd. Showtime is 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $32.50.
