Podcast Episode 25 : Slaid Cleaves

A couple weeks ago at Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza and Live Music, one of my favorite singer/ songwriters ever made an appearance. Slaid has been a mainstay in my musical rotation for quite a few years, so I was thrilled to finally see him live.

His 2 hour show at Natalie’s eclipsed even my expectations, as he and guitarist Scrappy Jud Newcomb ran through songs that spanned Slaid’s entire career. The show rightfully sold out and hopefully that will mean more Slaid shows in Columbus in the near future.

Prior to the show Slaid and I sat down and discussed his newest record, Still fighting the War, co-writing with a dead hero, and learning to yodel properly from a living hero among many other things. While Slaid did not have the time to play any songs live, he did give me permission to include some studio songs, so you will hear a couple tracks from that new record as well as a classic Slaid track at the end.

As always share the link, tell your friends, leave a comment or review on iTunes and most importantly enjoy the show.
