    Slaid Cleaves Slaid Cleaves lives with his wife of 19 years, Karen Cleaves, in the Hill Country outside Austin, Texas. While Karen books the shows, the flights, the hotels, and the rental cars, designs, orders and sells the CDs and T-shirts, pays the band, updates the web site, answers fan questions, does the taxes and makes dinner, Slaid writes his little songs (and fixes things around the house).They travel around the world together while Slaid plays for fans far and wide and gets all the glory. If it wasnt for Karen, Slaid would be carrying all he owned in a shoe box, scrounging around for a happy hour gig.Visit Slaid Cleavess Website
