Nashville singer-songwriter Langhorne Slim never gave much thought to how he first began in music or what inspired him.

He just always knew he needed to do something, staying active rather than just staying still.

And he certainly is very grateful the opportunity came along.

"This life is full of emotion; I am just glad I had this outlet," he said.

Using his signature folk, rock, and pop blend to impress crowds across the country, including festivals such as Lollapalooza and South by Southwest, it's safe to say this outlet of music and songwriting has served him well so far.

Having recently relocated to Nashville, he just last year released a critically acclaimed album, "The Spirit Moves," with his band, The Law.

This close group of men he calls brothers has been with him through a lot and his drummer, Malachi DeLorenzo, has been with him for more than a decade. He recounts the many times his band managed to cram an unimaginable load of instruments, amps, and gear into his grandmother's Toyota Camry, and hitting the road to their next gig.

"In life, you find your people - your family - and something like that is for sure worth having," he said.
