Slaid Cleaves

Mr. Cleaves, I just want to say that I conect with you and your music more than any other, I am an acustic guitar player but can not sing worth a hoot, I heared "Lydia" about 19 or 20 years ago and was blown away.I was a Police Officer at the time and as fate would have it I got myself in to a little trouble and spent about 13 years in prison , I just got out june 26 and find comfort in your music more than ever. Thank you so much . Peace to you and your family. Your forever fan, Darrell

Wow, Darrell, that's heavy stuff. It sounds like you have led the kind of life I tend to write about in my songs (full disclosure: my friend Karen Poston wrote the song "Lydia.") I appreciate you taking the time to write - you've made my day by letting me know my music has brought some comfort. -Slaid
