Hey Slaid, my name is Troy Breslow and I'm a singer songwriter based in Nashville (since January) originally from VA and I've been on tour nonstop this year. Earlier this year I accepted a prestigious award in my hometown of Norfolk and Sorrow and Smoke was the first record I put on that same night on my way back to my home in Tennessee. Had an emotional moment with "One Good Year" because I had finally proven myself in my hometown (which is known as cover band hell) as an original artist, and I had finally made the leap to the big bad city. I can't tell you how many gigs I've headed to and fro whilst listening to your music. I would love to see you play sometime in Tennessee. Any tour plans on the dixie circuit for 2019?
All the best,
Hey Troy, thanks for writing. Congratulations on making the big leap. I did the same thing - Portland, ME to Austin, TX - 27 years ago this month. It took a long time to come to fruition, but it has turned out to be a good move. Persistence is key (and a partner with a decent job). I've had a hard time finding decent gigs in Tennessee - there are plenty of better offers elsewhere in this wide world, so that's where I'll be going in the future. Good luck to you sir! -Slaid
I’m sorry. I feel like such an idiot now. I thought you were from Washington. Im a native Texan.. I just recently started listening to your music and I LOVE it! ESPECIALLY “Cry”.. I hope to see you next year when you’re back on the road. Thank you for answering me and enjoy your “time off the road.” Respectfully, Rhiannon GrumblesSlaid Cleaves responded on 11/27/2018 Next question
My name is Preston and I am an audio engineer/producer and am offering to produce one song for FREE for you, no strings attached.
I am a student at the Recording Conservatory of Austin and a graduate of the Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis. I love music and am all about it! I also play guitar, drums, bass, and sing, and I write my own material too. I love collaborating with others as well. I just recently moved here to make a name for myself in Austin.
I like your sound and would love to help you with your next project. I hope that if you like what you get from me that we can continue to work together.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
