Slaid Cleaves‘s musical roots extend back prior to his days playing in a high school “garage band” with his childhood friend Rod Picott. The two shared a love of music, especially Bruce Springsteen and named their band The Magic Rats, after a character in Springsteen’s song “Jungleland.” He brought his love of American artists such as Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Tom Waits, CCR, and more with him to Cork, Ireland, where he spent his junior year of college. To help pass the time he learned how to play the songs on guitar and on November 18, 1985 he made his debut as a busker‹a street singer‹in Cork City, Ireland. After several false starts he started to gain notice around Portland, Maine and in 1990 released his debut cassette, The Promise. Only a few songs off this album, “Sweet Summertime”, “Lonesome Highway” and “Wrecking Ball” still occasionally get played in concert. The original tape has unfortunately been lost, and only copies remain.
