First of all thanks for the great music. I have a question and something to tell you. First do you ever get out to LA. Would love to see you on the left coast.
When my wife was battling cancer, your song "One Good Year" gave me strength to keep helping her fight her battle. Even though she succumbed to cancer, "One Good Year" gives me strength when dealing with something difficult. So thank you for being with me when I needed it.
Hope to see you soon.
Thanks Scott, Glad to hear you found the right song to carry you through a rough time. We were in LA in June, so it'll be a while before we head back. If you are on the mailing list you'll heard about. -Slaid
I'm not sure if you remember me. I am Joe Fink. I interviewed you on air in Roswell N.M a few years ago. I now live in Denton Tx. I was wondering if you would like to tour my place of work when you are in the area. I press vinyl records now. I can give you my email information if you'd like. I'm a fan, I missed your show in Roswell, I won't make that mistake when you are near this time.
Well, that sure sounds like fun. We'll be at Dan's Silverleaf in Denton on October 19. Maybe we can swing by the plant after lunch on the 20th. I'll copy this to Karen so she can work out the details as we get closer. Thanks for getting in touch. -Slaid
That's not a Slaid question. That's a Karen question. Click on her name here: slaidcleaves.com/contact
Hi, Slaid! I'm teaching a college class on misinformation and fake news this Fall. My colleague told me a story about your show in St. Louis last night...an anecdote about a movie quote and finding its source? We thought it would be perfect to kick off a class discussion. Would you happen to have a video clip of your story? Thanks!
Hi Sarah, I don't have video of the St Louis show, but I told the same story in Fresno last month. The whole show is posted here:
At 10:58 I start the song "Drunken Barber's Hand" and at about 14:00 I tell the story about coming across the quote that inspired the song.
I hope you get a good discussion started!
Thank you Dennis. Although a few people "overserved" themselves and were a bit noisy, we still had a great time at the Blue Door.
Thanks so much. That was a special show at the Kessler. Glad you could join us.
Not anytime soon, I'm afraid. Need to write 12 new songs first.
I am also a songwriter; would you be willing to listen to a demo with a few songs? I've been writing and singing for years with a few covers. Love you music and admire how you hold the audience. Thanks, Michael Daniels
Hi Michael, Honestly I don;t have time to listen to demos. If you are looking for input I suggest you go to your local open mic, or send your songs into some of the contests out there, or make a simple video and put it up on YouTube. Good luck
Last night's show at the Kessler was wonderful, as usual. Thanks! Just visited your site to sign up for your mailing list and try to order a "Drinking Days" t-shirt. I see the shirts are sold out. Will you have any more shirts available anytime soon?
That was a special show at the Kessler, indeed. New shirts just came in Wednesday, so we haven't had time to put them up on the web site. Will do in the next day or two. Thanks!
