An Evening with Slaid Cleaves
Texas via Maine songwriter SLAID CLEAVES spins stories with a novelist's eye and a poet's heart.
Childhood friend Rod Picott, who has co-written with Slaid on several indelible blue-collar vignettes over the years (Broke Down, Sinners Prayer, Bring It On, Black T-shirt) says, "Slaid is my favorite co-writer. He's a smart writer with a gift for wringing the most out of a melody. Slaid understands that the song has to rule. He's patient and unwavering in his pursuit of the best."
SLAID is doing this tour with Scrappy Jud Newcomb.
"I'm glad I found Slaid Cleaves, because my life would have been poorer without him. You'll feel the same, I think, when you listen to this beautifully crafted album. Listen, go to one of Slaid's shows, take a friend, and pass on the news: Not all the good guys wear hats." Stephen King
"A sharply observant songwriter with a deep appreciation for the ageless fundamentals of folk, country, and rock one of the country's most compelling roots artists."
