About Slaid Cleaves

Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriter’s Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves’ seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-­‐string for a good idea. “Slaid’s a craftsman,” says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on “Texas Love Song.” “He goes about his songs like a woodworker.”

"Of all the singer-songwriters to come out of Texas in the past 20 years, few if any approach the lyrical and melodic consistency of Slaid Cleaves." -Jim Caliguiri, The Austin Chronicle
