For your story song such as Below and Breakfast in Hell do you use folk lore, true events as basis or pure imagination .. or all three??
Those two are based on historical characters and events, with some artistic licence thown in to make it rhyme.
Last week we noticed a dearth of love songs in your repertoire; after careful listening to 3 cd's, we surmise that "Beyond Love" is the ultimate love song. Says it all.
Who's your fave songwriter?
Looking forward to seeing you (with Eliza Gilkyson) in Seattle and Portland next week. That wasn't really a question was it?Slaid Cleaves responded on 09/04/2012
