UUCB Concerts for a Cause: SLAID CLEAVES
Maine-raised, Texas-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Slaid Cleaves started playing music as a teenager, inspired by artists like Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Cash. He quickly built a local fanbase in Portland. Cleaves rose to national prominence in 1997 upon the release of his national debut, No Angel Knows, and has achieved national success with his subsequent albums. The music of Cleaves is rooted in country and traditional folk songs, but it is unusual enough to have held interest in a sea of singer/songwriters across the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. He has combined his passion for folk songs, blues, and traditional country music into an amalgamation of styles known as Americana.
