  • Date Recorded: January 29, 2011
  • Artist / Band: Langhorne Slim
  • Hosting Show: Collector's Edition
  • Sound: Jon Valley
  • Video: Ed Kleinberg and Kelsey McClure

With dramatic lyrics and soul-bearing vocals, Langhorne Slim delivers a homemade and down-home sound undefinable by one genre.

Langhorne Slim's sound was not a vision Sean Scolnick set out to create but rather a natural and instinctive occurrence for him while learning the guitar. A move to New York allowed Slim to pursue his desire to perform and develop the foundation for his sometimes anachronistic style. That style blends foot tapping, jangly and soulful cries; at times, it reveals a truly raw emotion, reminiscent of a blues-inspired power ballad.

While touring with the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, Slim began to gain recognition, filling his live shows with storytelling and energetic performances. After a self-released demo, and his first EP, Electric Love Letter, Langhorne moved to a more band-oriented sound. He released his first full-length album, When the Sun's Gone Down in 2005. Slim's musical accompaniment includes Malachi DeLorenzo on the drums, Jeff Ratner on the upright bass and David Moore on the keyboard and banjo. The band released its third albulm in 2009, Be Set Free on Kemado Records.
