The music of Austin-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Slaid Cleaves is rooted in country and traditional folk songs, but it is unusual enough to have held interest in a sea of
singer/songwriters across the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. He combines his passion for folk songs, blues, and traditional country music into an amalgamation of styles known as Americana. Now twenty-five years into his storied career, Cleaves' songwriting has never been more potent than on his latest album Ghost on the Car Radio.

The characters in Slaid Cleaves songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, they run out of money, they grow old, they hold on to each other (or not), and they die. With an eye for the beauty in everyday life, he tells their stories, bringing a bit of empathy to their uncaring world.

While Slaid Cleaves released a handful of recordings during the early '90s, he gained significant notice with No Angel Knows, which was released on Rounder's Philo subsidiary in 1997. Not surprisingly, the album rode high into the charts at Americana-formatted radio stations around the U.S. and Canada in 1997. The release set the tone for the rest of his career.

On "Take Home Pay," co-written with longtime friend Rod Picott, Cleaves sings from the perspective of an aging manual laborer, fighting looming regret and sadness with stubborn resiliency (and opioid use). Of his music, hes said I tend to think of songs as the whiskey of writing. Distilled down to the essence, powerful, concentrated, immediate. You can take it all in and really feel it in just seconds.

Cleaves brings such warmth, tenderness and humanity to his songs that youll be hanging on his words and getting lost in the worlds of characters most of us are familiar with. -  Hal Horowitz, American Songwriter
