Love Life PT. 1
Slim Francis is a soul infused rock outfit from New York City whose arching melodies and intricate textures recall the legendary artists of the seventies. The Brooklyn based band is led by Aric Carroll, an extraordinary songwriter, whose eclectic guitar stylings and improvisational vocals tell haunting tales of life and love in the big city. Laying down the beat is the renowned drummer Matt Johnson, a founding member of Jeff Buckley's band, who has played with esteemed artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Ricki Lee Jones, Duncan Sheik, Beth Orton and John Mayer. A major player in the development of their sound is Steve Brown, original bassist and multi-instrumentalist who has lent his talents on all of their recordings before heading to the West Coast. His performance and arranging skills can be heard on the latest record On With The Show. Most recently Steve has collaborated with grammy nominated producer and engineer, Jay Bennet, from the band Wilco, performing on the violin and upright bass.
