We had an amazing time showing Langhorne Slim and his band The War around Memphis today! Having him come to Ardent Studios to record some songs for our podcast was just the icing on the cake.
We had the privilege of taking the guys to The Stax Museum of American Soul Music here in Memphis this afternoon and we were not surprised to learn that his favorite musician just happens to be Otis Redding. If you listen to Langehorn Slim’s music, it’s easy to see that at heart – he’s a soul singer. He and his band play tonight at The Hitone Cafe – so come one out and show him some love!! He’s such a nice guy! It’s sure to be a show to remember!

There is nothing like the challenges and camaraderie of the road to inspire a songwriter who thrives upon the emotional energy and exhilaration only travel can deliver. Some singers are devoted to the pursuit of perpetual motion, and Langhorne Slim releases his wild soul in ways that come out of the discipline of live performance.
The 13 songs that compose Langhorne Slim & The Law’s new The Way We Move are road-tested, rollicking and very rock ‘n’ rolling tunes that the songwriter perfected with his loyal band, and come out of the kind of good times and bad experiences that songwriters of Langhorne’s lofty stature can turn into life-affirming rock ‘n’ roll. You could also call what Langhorne Slim does folk music, but then there’s his sly, charming and open-hearted feel for pop music—those summertime melodies that nudge you into a grin even when the song is about something bad.
