April Tour Announced!!

Hey y’all!!

The boys & I are about to be back in your town! It’s been a while since we hit the road together and there’s been rumors flyin’ as to where we’ve been. Some have speculated that Jeff has been livin’ under the Ocean City boardwalk, metal detecting the beaches by night. Malachi is thought to be in a traveling production of Phantom of the Opera in the starring role and David is rumored to be modeling underwear in Argentina. It’s hard to tell what of this is true, but we are certain that we’ve all been hunkered down working on tunes for our brand new album coming out this summer.

April seemed like a perfect time to hit the road and play some of the new tunes for y’all. So, without any further ado, the April tour:

The Pink House Sessions are here!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Due to cosmic curiosities and magnetic mysteries beyond my full comprehension, I’ve recently become the owner and caretaker of a very special home. It all started when Jon Legere – aka Bermuda Jon – sent me a picture of a pink house from his office in New York City. I dropped everything I was doing that day (which wasn’t much) and rushed over to marvel at this little magical house. As I sat out front day dreaming (or, as some might call it, loitering), I heard a deep, kind voice: “hi, can I answer any questions about the house?” And that’s where it all began.

For the next several months Gary and Janie, the owners of The Pink House, and I exchanged a fleet of emails filled with musings, stories and spiritual contemplations on life, love, dreams and home. Through truths that exist where words have never lived – a mysterious BMI check from Japan – and a love song that I wrote for Gary, Janie and the house itself, I found myself with the keys to this dream that I now call home.  I’ve spent most all of my money, my accountant quit and a few folks have even advised me to paint it – but I kept dreaming the dream, and now I’m living in it.  As Kenny Siegal once told me, “go where the love is kid.” I’ve since discovered that when you get there, you’re home.

In the first two weeks of living in The Pink House, nothing short of magic has transpired. My dear friends Joel Sadler and Sarah Schutzki, of La Blogotheque fame, turned up at my doorstep for an incredible ten-day stay. What began as a request to have Joel and Sarah film me and a few friends playing my Pink House Song led to a rotating cast of musical wizards stopping in to visit, take in the pink vibes and play their soulful songs. How lucky am I?! We filmed it all, and what started as a small and humble idea has turned into a time capsule of extraordinary performances of deep spirit and beauty.

Please visit the new site, The Pink House Sessions. An initial collection of videos in the first two weeks of me living in my home, followed by others than have transpired since. Here’s to many, many more, and to love, to dreams and to having the faith to do both.

With great gratitude and thanks to Gary, Janie, Jon, Joel, Sarah, Kate, Holly and all the friends that have stopped by thus far, and to all the friends that will drop by in the future. This is gonna be fun!

Love & light, brothers and sisters.

Stay groovy,
Slim

New Song and Video! “Southern Bells”

Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in my dear friend’s documentary called Heartworn Highways Revisited – a follow up to the seminal Heartworn Highways made in 1976 about the beginnings of ‘Outlaw Country’ in Nashville and Austin. John McCauley from Deer Tick, Jonny Fritz, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Justin Townes Earle…are just a few of the beautiful badasses that are featured in this film, set to be released summer 2015.

To celebrate the launch of HeartwornHighways.com, check out THIS VIDEO of a new song of mine called “Southern Bells” shot by director Wayne Price.

Please take a moment to explore the website and sign up for the site’s mailing list to stay informed about all things Heartworn, from screenings to more exclusive BONUS content like this video.

Peace, love and rock n roll
