Indie Spotlight: Langhorne Slim

Posted in News on December 17, 2009

Entertainment Weekly dubbed him “Your next obsession,” while Rolling Stone pronounced him “damn near perfect.” Needless to say, it’s been a nonstop journey of excitement for Langhorne Slim. Since March 2008, the band have headlined over 150 shows and played major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot, Austin City Limits Festival, Newport Folk Fest, Sunset Junction, Pickathon, Rhythm and Roots, and SXSW. This fall, Langhorne Slim toured the US and Europe in support of new effort Be Set Free, a stunning album reliant on lush string arrangements and the fine sonic talents of drummer Malachi DeLorenzo, new bassist Jeff Ratner and new keyboard/banjo player David Moore. Langhorne’s stronger than ever vocals lead the journey blending his poetry through the beautiful chaos and bearing a wisdom that reflects a broken heart battling the perils of true hope.
