A mellow soul decorated by life on the road, Langhorne Slim can be found somewhere between weathered folk vinyls and a kickin' rock show, while flirting with upbeat pop rhythms.

Langhorne's sixth record, "The Way We Move," was released in June 2012. The boxing-themed imagery of this thirteen-song album supports the overall idea of rolling with the punches. Langhorne's records reveal a rich acoustic guitar, sweet banjo picks, drums, keys and the occasional sprightly tambourine, all tying together nicely with Langhorne's such-is-life lyrics and genuine -- and at times scratchy -- voice. Notable for a number of songs, Langhorne has a way of taking less than perfect life experiences and setting them to a cheery tune, as he conveys the significance of seeking out the bright side during rough times. His free spirit is evident in his songwriting with a contagious pursuit of peace, love and happiness.

Langhorne Slim and his band, The Law -- Malachi DeLorenzo on drums, Jeff Ratner on bass and David Moore on banjo and keyboard -- found success playing out on the West Coast and have been consistently touring the country, including tours with the Avett Brothers and the Drive-By Truckers.
