Slaid Cleaves

Love your music, Slaid!!. Your lyrics always touch my heart and soul; you have a talent for getting all the right words in all the right places. The songs on your latest CD are fantastic. I love the way you've been closing your shows (saw you at Godfrey Daniels in PA and The Towne Crier in NY) with "Go for the Gold". "GONE" haunts me - what (who) was the inspiration behind that one? Can't wait 'til you come to PA or NY again! Blennie

Thanks Blennie. It's so much talent but dogged determination. Gone was written with a childhood friend, Nicole St Pierre, whose grandmother used to utter the phrase "And there it was: gone!" when she would misplace something. Nicole wrote the story and I turned it into a song.
