Hi Slaid, any chance of aWork Tapes vol2 being available? Love hearing works in progress and how you put a song together. Hope you get back to the UK soon, another casualty of the brexit madness. Safe travels this year. Simon

Bless you, Simon, you are the first to inquire about a possible Bonus Tracks, Vol. 2. I guess you could say demand is not strong. As for the next UK tour, I like to blame Brexit, but truthfully, I'd like to have some new songs before heading overseas. It could be a while. Cheers, Slaid

Q

Please consider making a regular tour stop in Huntsville, Alabama. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by the fans.

I appreciate the invite. If you know of a venue in Huntsville that hosts people like me (like Mary Gauthier, Ellis Paul, John Gorka, Steve Forbert, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, etc) please send to Karen: slaidcleavesbooking@gmail.com. Thanks! -Slaid

Q

Do you have or want to sell a vinyl version of Sarrow & Smoke live at the horseshoe? That would be the amazing. I really want to buy this album in vinyl for my niece that turned 21 and is now big into vinyl and will never know the horseshoe. I was going there during the time you recorded this album. I’m extremely sad I missed this show. Probably would have been the best show I’ve seen in Austin and I’ve seen a lot of great ones.

Indeed, I've considered issuing a vinyl version of Sorrow & Smoke, as the songs were mixed to flow from one to the other, as in the live show, and not as discrete tracks. Plus that artwork would look so good in vinyl packaging. To have enough good material for the album, we actually recorded two shows at the Shoe, and while they did have a special feel, there were lots of interruptions for tuning and other technical issues.

Q

Is this where you do requests? I’d like to request Borderline for the Heights show on July 12th. Have only heard it live once.

Thanks,
Jamie Smith

Yes! Or sign up on the mailing list, and just reply to one of our emails. Borderline, Heights, Jamie - got it.

Q

Sure wish you would come to East Tennessee or Western North Carolina.

We've played Johnson City a few times, but it's been a while. More recently we've been playing in Asheville. Nothing on the calendar this year, maybe next. Cheers, Slaid

Q

Just a comment, Slaid. Your music struck a chord with me quite a few years ago when I first heard Broke Down. I feel really fortunate that I came upon your songs. There's a lot of us out there. You're doing a good thing! Trust me....

Hey Dean, So kind of you to take the time to write. It was 20 years ago that I was in the studio, recording the Broke Down album. I'm always grateful to hear that my music still resonates over the years. -Slaid

Will you be coming through the Nashville area any time soon?
