About

Slaid Cleaves

Grew up in Maine. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Makes records. Travels around. Tries to be good.

Joseph Hudak of Rolling Stone calls Cleaves “a master storyteller, one influenced not by the shine of pop-culture but by the dirt of real life.”

Slaid's not much into social media. You can reach him on Twitter or on the Contact page of this site
