“a formidable talent who can swamp-rock it up with the best of them, and follow that with a delicate acoustic ballad, all wrapped in a honeyed, soulful, puppy dog voice that’s as memorable as the melodies.” AMERICAN SONGWRITER
“…driving the ladies wild with Nashville charm, a story-teller’s approach, and a blend of classic country instrumentation…”
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“He’s got that swagger and still waters thing going on that hearkens back to the legendary Southern singer/songwriters of the seventies as well as the Canyon greats.”
THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“his songs have more muscle and grit than the folk troubadours of the Greenwich scene”
“Combs is an impeccable craftsman indebted to not only the troubadour lineageof his native Texas, but to that magical moment at the turn of the 1960s into the 1970s when country, soul, rock and pop balladry all mingled on sophisticated albums by artists as varied as Kris Kristofferson, James Taylor and Phoebe Snow. All These Dreams flows the way albums did then, with Combs’s vulnerable voice lifted up within lush arrangements in songs that balance pensiveness with yearning.”
Ann Powers, NPR
