Langhorne Slim - Be Set Free -2009-
(Folk, Rock, Blues, Soul)

From: NYC

It is said that the most endearing and standout qualities of Slim's live shows is the sureness that one is always entering a genuine Gospel-like musical experience. Be Set Free seems to have captured this charisma and spirit. Their are "tug at the heart-strings" moments and "raise a drink" foot stomping/blues vibes throughout with hallelujah choruses, lush string arrangements and the musical talents of drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and new bassist Jeff Ratner. Entertaining lyrics and strong vocals propel the album. For those looking for something not to mellow and and with quite a bit of variety - much better than most of the singer-songwriter stuff coming out these days. The upbeat "Say Yes" and the bluesy rocker "For A Little While" are standout cuts.
