Langhorne Slim hits Europe/UK for two week run starting this week in Belfast22-08-2017
Langhorne Slim is the pseudonym of Sean Scolnick, a singer-songwriter originally from Pennsylvania; now living in Nashville.
Sometimes, truth can't be explained. But it can be felt, running wild through a song. "I don't want to tame myself. I want to be wild," says Langhorne Slim. "If I can continue to refine the wildness but never suffocate or tame it, then I'm on the right path. Because it is a path. I feel it."
The Spirit Moves is Langhorne's newest artistic attempt to refine the wildness. The result is an effervescent collection of his now-signature, cinematic, joyful noise, rooted in folk, soul, and blues. Last week Langhorne Slim shared the news a new album is finished and due out soon.
The Spirit Moves is a stunning portrait of Langhorne's life in transition: the "born to be in motion and follow the sun" rambler found a home in Nashville. While he's put down roots in a place, he's unattached to a person, single for the first time in recent memory. The Spirit Moves is also the first album of his career written and recorded entirely sober. Together, the record's beautiful glimpses of bold beginnings and risks taken create an ode not only to a better life, but to the vulnerability needed to live it.
Recently Langhorne Slim recorded an awesome video with Ranky Tanky at the Highwater Festival:
