- “He’s a prodigious performer, and a night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear
George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these
amazing songs. Webb is still at it, thankfully, and if you get a chance to see him live, grab it.
People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still
does.” ~ American Songwriter Magazine
- “Mr. Webb is a superb natural melodist whose best songs often combine the tuneful directness
of country music with the unabashedly romantic harmonic palette of classic Hollywood film
scores.” ~ The New York Times
A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb’s been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards,
for some forty years. And he’s still doing it. Now on tour with his newest CD, “Still Within the Sound of My Voice” Jimmy Webb
is engaging his audiences like never before. Though some might still not know his name, they know the songs: “Wichita
Lineman,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Galveston,” “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,” “All I Know,” “The Highwayman,”
“Up, Up and Away,” “MacArthur Park,” and many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare
songwriters who manages to bring a genuine measure of magic to everything he touches.

Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. Twenty years into his career,
the celebrated songwriter’s Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves’
seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled.
Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. “Slaid’s a
craftsman,” says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on “Texas Love Song.” “He goes about his
songs like a woodworker.”
Accordingly, Cleaves’ earthy narratives stand oak strong. “Men go off to war for a hundred
reasons/But they all come home with the same demons,” he sings on the album’s title track. “Some
you can keep at bay for a while/Some will pin you to the floor/You’ve been home for a couple of
years now, buddy/But you’re still fighting the war.” Few writers frame bruised souls as clearly.
Fewer still deliver a punch with such striking immediacy.

|“I’m glad I found Slaid Cleaves, because my life would have been poorer without him.”
~ Stephen King
- “A sharply observant songwriter with a deep appreciation for the ageless fundamentals of folk, country, and rock …one of the
country’s most compelling roots artists.” ~ Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
- “He phrases like a grifter trying to croon his low-down past away—and writes like he knows he never will.”
~ Roy Kasten, River Front Times, St. Louis
