The music of Austin-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Slaid Cleaves is rooted in country and traditional folk songs, but it is unusual enough to have held interest in a sea of singer/songwriters across the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. … AllMusic
“I’m glad I found Slaid Cleaves, because my life would have been poorer without him. You’ll feel the same ... go to one of Slaid’s shows, take a friend, and pass on the news:” Stephen King
“A sharply observant songwriter with a deep appreciation for the ageless fundamentals of folk, country, and rock … one of the country’s most compelling roots artists.” Chicago Reader
“He phrases like a grifter trying to croon his low-down past away—and writes like he knows he never will. ‘I’ve been chasing grace but grace ain’t so easily found,’ he sings on ‘One Good Year,’ just one of the many subtle, momentary stays against the dark side of his heart. That heart doesn’t bleed easily—but when it does, it bleeds true.” River Front Times, St. Louis
