As the phenomena of instant connection and the need for constant self-improvement further implant their tendrils into our culture, the ability to truly connect with each other and ourselves has begun to fade. As we all reach for our smartphones to gaze upon the manufactured perfection of the lives of those we admire, we lose sight of what makes our own lives important.
Nashville's Langhorne Slim interlaces this theme throughout his new album. "Everyone's searchin' for something better around every corner, but it's already right here," Langhorne says. "We're all born whole -- through livin' we fall apart..."
The songs on Langhorne Slim's newest album, Lost At Last Vol. 1, out November 10, 2017, challenge the idea of social rigidity: the attitude that there's a "correct" way for us to live and a side we should be on. He urges the world to see through the idea that by following that path and focusing only on fitting the mold, one will have lived a good life. He re-interprets the sound of the free-spirited yet vulnerable everyman heard on 2015's The Spirit Moves and brings forth anew the call for us to abandon "the fold" and re-connect with ourselves and each other.
Langhorne Slim is no stranger to the world of popular culture and commercial success. Lost At Last Vol. 1 is his sixth full-length album; throughout his career he has been defined by reflective songwriting and passionate delivery. Slim's last album cycle alone garnered him his third appearance on Conan O'Brien's late-night show, as well as a feature on CBS Saturday Morning, and the highest charting debut of his career. O'Brien, a personal fan of Slim stated, "After one listen, I became an instant, almost obsessive fan." Slim has consistently toured on his own, and has appeared on extensive worldwide runs throughout his career with artists such as The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gregory Alan Isakov, Josh Ritter, The Devil Makes Three, Sara Watkins, and more. He's also appeared on many festival stages, such as Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.
Lost At Last Vol. 1 is a record that Langhorne wanted to do differently from the start. "Almost immediately after recording our last record, The Spirit Moves," Slim says, "I felt a deep desire to make another album. One that would take a step sideways in order to take a step forward; one that would be very personal and the making of this record, I made a deal with myself to trust my own voice and vision more than I ever have before, and to go willingly wherever it led."
The title alone reflects his need to pen a great wealth of songs, as if the thoughts and inspiration took on a life of their own and just needed to come out. Recorded over the span of around six months in New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Catskill, NY, and clocking in at about 34 minutes, it's a short but intense listening experience. Several songs are under two or three minutes long, but they pack vivid imagery into concise packages in a way that shows a significant diversion from the songwriting on his previous records. Slim keeps his record-making in the family with this release; longtime band member Malachi DeLorenzo co-produced the record along with Kenny Siegal, and DeLorenzo also mixed several tracks in addition to playing drums on the record.
Slim reflects truths that we may or may not want to admit; in "Life is Confusing," he muses that "life is confusing, and people are insane." He stands resolute in the face of trial: ." could break my heart, but you'll never break me," he sings on "Never Break." He calls upon the listener during this time fraught with challenges to unplug from the trajectory our culture has deemed is "right" and find strength in our own vulnerability, in our own instincts. "We look to our phones, drugs, sex whatever to find ourselves when it's already right here," Slim says. These songs join in the rallying call for the wild ones in us all.

Christian Lee Hutson
The story of a singer songwriter who dropped out of high school at the age of 15 is one we’ve heard before. The stories that Christian Lee Hutson has to tell are not.
Named after his cousin whom was accidentally killed as a child, Hutson had a head start on a life that reads like a work of fiction. Spending his formative years growing up in the Hotel California in Santa Monica with his father, a minor league baseball player, Hutson has an uncanny knack for finding humor in loss and sadness.
His signature, piano-like, guitar picking style, is a staple of his unique sound and the product of accompanying himself in the years of solo touring he began as a teenager.
Hutson’s writing is delivered with an inviting voice of understated confidence. He currently resides in Los Angeles, where he's preparing to release his debut full length record, Beginners.

The Troubadour (solo w/Sara Watkins) - SOLD OUT
June 20th 2017
Outstanding concert as usual when Langhorne Slim is in the room. Sean absolutely knows how to entertain a crowd, and keep them at ease, whether solo or with his band he is warm and relatable. I loved the raw intimacy of the performance and even the rare seating setup at the Troubadour last night. Felt like being with close friends gathered in a living room more than the typical concert. There was even a 1 year old baby and 70/80 year olds in attendence who Langhorne interacted with. I fell in love with Sean all over again watching his natural charm and fun personality win over the entire audience (I promise I didn't intend to make him/you nervous by scoping - so sorry, just know many fans internationally that became huge fans last January when he performed with Sawyer Fredericks that love him as much as I do, but wouldn't be able to see him otherwise, and there are thousands+ across US hoping they will be lucky enough to have him come to their town during his tour that couldn't travel to West Hollywood last night.) Sarah was fantastic as well. Both performers have exquisite voices and insane writing/storytelling skills in addition to incredible musical ability with their instruments. Would highly recommend going to any future shows with either of them. My only complaint is that it ended too soon. Hoping I'll get a chance to see Langhorne again in the near future. I'm so happy I discovered him thanks to Sawyer's awesome taste in music. Sean is a rare gem worth investing in.

This was my favorite solo Slim show to date! Intimate venue, engaging and amusing ramblings and so much of the Langhorne Slim music that I love! Old songs, covers, a whole lot of new songs that only make waiting for the new album more tantalizingly torturous (in the best way of course.)
