Hey Thanks. I write or co-write most of my songs. I record one by a friend once in a while. I first tried writing in high school. Didn't really finish one till college. It's a mysterious, never-ending struggle to find them.
Ask a question..hanks, I play most all types of guitars, piano, ukulele, harmonica and anything I can fit into my music room. I think it's just bc my ex was a real attention getter and would constantly play louder than me regardless of what instruments we had in hand. Gotta get over the ex electric gitters. Thanks so much for the response!
I have a favor to ask and I couldn't think of a better songwriter--- so I'll try and beg. I've been filling books with so many lyrics that I desperately need a more experienced musicians help. My music room has all I could need but someone 2 take a chance with me. I've been heartbroken beyond pain, brushed my tears with laughter and nodded knowingly without an answer.
I have a particular need to thank bits of bliss and curse the unlucky times that I watch with close attention. Please give me the honor to share and possibly encourage a bit of interest!?I also am florist in San Marvelous
I'm honored, but I don't see what I can do to help. I would suggest you search for people in your community (actual or online) for fellow lyric writers in order to join (or create) a club of like-minded folks. If you don't yet play an instrument - pick up a guitar and learn - it's good for your brain! Or go to open mics to get to know up and coming musicians in your area, and find one or more that you can work with. Good luck, persist,
Slaid... Love your music and would like to download the cuts not available on CD, but mp3s suck. Any chance of making a FLAC or other lossless format a download option? You could even charge more! I want to hear you in your full glory, not watered down. Thanks for gettin' up each morning and t
elling the tale... Tim
Hi Tim, I'll look into that when I upgrade my web site. It's due for an overhaul. Thanks.
Slaid how does it feel to be the most unappreciated live performer in this here state i grew up on your music my dad and i consider you the best singer we know though it seems that everyone doesn't acknowledge your talent i mean ive been to some your performances and there just as good as your recordings i just want to say horses is my favorite song probably because i can relate however all of your songs are good wich i dont know how you do it
Well, Jackson, I sure feel appreciated now. Thanks!
Would love to. But it's just so far away . . .
Big fan! I absolutely love One Good Year Please, please, please come to Northern Colorado! Just had Todd Snider in Denver last week, we have Hayes Carll coming to Ft. Collins next week, and we definitely need some Slaid Cleaves here soon to complete the trilogy!
Thanks for putting out great music!
Thanks Phillip. It's an honor to be mentioned along side those two great writers. We have tried many times to make a Colorado tour happen. It never seems to come together, but we'll keep trying!
Well, thanks Kris. Embarrassed to admit I've never set foot in your great state. Someday . . .
Sorry, Richard. Just not enough hipsters to release back catalog on vinyl. But the new album, coming in June, might be a different story …
