I've been listening to your music since I was a little girl, and tonight I forced myself to finish my college applications (which I have been putting off for for months now) because of your music. which has gotten me through so many other situations in life. I told my dad I was gonna write you to inform you of that just so you know that your music can completely take a losing hand and somehow win! and he said you wouldn't reply. Please help me prove him wrong! Oh and also, you are still the best singer/songwriter I know of, and my whole family loves your music so much! thanks for having your music on spotify btw!! Much love from Corpus Christi!!
(Sorry this isn't me asking you a question, but I wasn't sure how to send fan mail!)
Thanks for taking the time to write, and congratulations on finishing your applications - surely the most disagreeable part of the college experience. When I was about to go to college all I wanted was to someday make music that pulled people through hard times, as Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie and Bruce Springsteen had given me the strength to pull through. I had no idea how to go about a career in music, but I bumbled my way through, and after many years of failure I've come to a place where someone like you would take the time to inform me that I've succeeded. It's deeply gratifying. Thanks.
Is it a mortal sin or a venial sin to listen to you on Spotify?Slaid Cleaves responded on 09/26/2015 Next question
I see that you're coming to St. Louis at Off Broadway October 8th, a show that I'm planning on going to. I've been a fan for a couple of years now, but never had the opportunity to see you live. Could you tell me if it's going to be a solo concert? Just you, basically? Or will you have a back up band? Furthermore, do you play old tunes or just what you've recently recorded? Thanks so much, I look forward to seeing you live buddy.Slaid Cleaves responded on 09/28/2015
