What I love about folk music and singer songwriters in general is the absolute freedom it sounds like those folks (pun intended) have in their genre. There’s literally no rules – I mean, besides playing music or singing; well, sometimes you don’t even really need to sing (see old Bob Dylan). And though they get lumped together, people like Dylan, Paul Simon or even Johnny Cash (a stretch, I know, but hear me out) don’t exactly sound the same but, still can be considered folk based on their storytelling prowess. Austin’s Slaid Cleaves is perfect example of this, sounding like he probably could show up on a mix with the aforementioned Dylan, Cash and Simon while possessing his own distinct sound.
