JEFF ROSENBERG

Secret Society Ballroom
116 NE Russell St.
 
[SUPERIOR SINGER-SONGWRITER] Empathy rises from Slaid Cleaves’ voice like steam from fresh-baked bread, where the salt in the recipe comes from tears of hardship and lost love, the wheat is harvested by the rough hands of the working man and the leavening comes from his understated but warm sense of humor. And the heat of the oven, particularly on his 2013 collection, Still Fighting the War, comes in part from the crucible of war. The title song introduces a veteran whose wounds are all on the inside but are no less devastating, just one of many characters Cleaves paints with a sharp eye and tender heart. 

Where: Secret Society Ballroom
Address: 116 NE Russell St.
