Love your music Slaid! In your song “New Years Day”, it sounds like you sing the “aisles of New Carlisle” rather than “up at Carlisle”. Just wondering, as we just spent some time in New Carlisle, a pretty town we passed through on a great driving tour of the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec. To make this more intriguing, my friend Kate Kerr grew up there - now living in western Canada not the Kerrville in your song!
As the old adage goes, people hear what they want to hear. The obscure reference is to Carlisle, PA, where the subject of the song, the late Jack Maxie, would attend the annual auto swap meets. Thanks for writing, Slaid
You are one of my favorite artists Slaid. Can't stop listening your albums. Are you preparing to come to Israel one day? keep the good work! Eran.Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/28/2018 Next question
Having been to several of your gigs in the UK, and then to Austin for the live music, I have told friends to go to Austin too. At one concert, you said to me that the places we had been were too commercial now, and I should ask you for the best places for live music, before going again to Austin. Now some friends are heading to Austin next Saturday, for a few days, and I would like to tell them where to go for the best live music. Please would you give me the names of where I should tell them to go. I will be very grateful - and promise to be at your next UK gig.........when is it?
