Artists may have several styles which influences their music, so it is not always easy to define their genre, as is the case with Slim. Some say Americana music shouldn’t be too bluesy and should be more country driven for example. Here is what we found on Wikipedia: Americana, as defined by the Americana Music Association (AMA), is “contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.”
It seems they just described Slim’s music to a T! However to be clear, Slim has created his own “Texacana” music style (or “TEXAKANA”). Americana with a Texas roots influence. Just in case you were wondering how his label, TEXAKANA MUSIC came to be.
Slim had the pleasure of entertaining a full house of locals recently at Grill Mix in Carcavelos, Portugal. Thanks to the owners, the staff Raul & Marina, and also Railan Melo the local Brazilian musician, who all made him welcome. Despite the language barrier, there was an incredible response, including from the media, with heart felt requests for Slim to return. This confirms that music truly is our universal language!
Slim will be performing live on BBC Radio Devon this Sat 17th May at 11am with an exclusive interview on the David Fitzgerald Show in order to promote his appearance at The Dart Music Festival same day 2pm!
Suitcase Slim will be playing live at The Dart Music Festival this Saturday, 17 May in Dartmouth at The Guildhall, 2:00pm and The Windjammer Inn 6:30pm. Come and enjoy some Southern Fried Blues and Americana Soul!
Former and original band member of the successful hard hitting band, Dr Feelgood comments on Slim’s music: “That’s what I like!” says Wilko Johnson.
Please also join us in wishing Wilko all the best as he recovers from surgery at his home in Essex.
