About Langhorne Slim & The Law
Pennsylvania-born self-taught guitarist Langhorne Slim moved to Brooklyn at the age of 18 and then found his way to the west coast. He is celebrated from Newport to Portland as one of today’s most original singers and songwriters creatively blending genres of rock and roll, folk, and pop music. Langhorne Slim & The Law – bassist Jeff Ratner, drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and banjo player and keyboardist David Moore – have played together on tours with the Drive-By Truckers and the Avett Brothers, and have made appearances at the Newport Folk Festival and Bonnaroo. The music of their latest album “comes through as you listen to his [Langhorne’s] virtuoso demonstration of a singing style that seems alive to every fleeting emotional shade of meaning. Langhorne puts you in mind of John Lennon’s singing from time to time. But these guys don’t play the reference game, and like to keep it raw. The new record moves in ways that are fresh for Langhorne Slim & The Law, and demonstrates all the ways we can go forward while keeping an eye on the mirror. They’re laying down the law.
