Slaid Cleaves may be the Americana genre’s most underappreciated songwriter.
Capable of telling haunting stories that reach into old weird Americana with a sense of life lived simply yet richly.
Acclaimed singer-songwriters at the top of their craft play a double bill at the MIM Music Theater.
Now 25 years into his storied career, singer-songwriter Slaid Cleaves’s songwriting has never been more potent than on his latest album Ghost on the Car Radio. The characters in Cleaves’s songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, they run out of money, they grow old, they hold on to each other (or not), and they die. With an eye for the beauty in everyday life, he tells their stories, bringing a bit of empathy to their uncaring world.
