Langhorne Slim has been tearing up the East Coast with his Holyrollerbluesyshowmanship. The man is a star waiting for the right universe to realize it. "Langhorne Slim expertly walks the line between the sublime and the subterranean At once raucous and reverent, his old-timey country blues is tempered with the occasional outburst of punk rock insolence indicating that there may just be an anarchy sign on the back of his guitar and a little more than constant sorrow on the brain of this charismatic troubadour." St. James Tothe
With musical influences that include Mahalia Jackson, Sid Vicious, Hank Williams, and Merle Haggard it is no wonder that Sarah Borges has her own unique alternative-country sound that falls somewhere between punk and country. At the South by Southwest Music Conference her ?rootsy, bluesy, country? music caught the attention of Blue Corn Records President Denby Auble. Under Blue Corn?s label her album ?Silver City ?, garnered praise by both the Austin Chronicle as a ?straight-up American roots rock performed with immeasurable heart and stunning confidence" and by The Boston Herald which called Borges? a talent ready to explode?.
