Langhorne Slim was born Sean Scolnick, and hails from his pseudonym-sake: the borough of Langhorne, Penn. After graduating college, Slim moved to New York City, where he began his slow climb into the American musical consciousness by touring with the sweetly arty Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. His popularity grew as he took his act from festival to festival and, eventually, an appearance on The David Letterman Show.

Slim is currently taking his rootsy, bluesy folk-rock on a U.S. tour to promote his new album, The Way We Move. Here, the singer-songwriter performs songs from the new record, recorded live from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Set List:
  • "Bad Luck"
  • "Song For Sid"
  • "On The Attack"
  • "Someday"
  • "Coffee Cups"
  • "The Way We Move"
  • "Fire"
  • "Past Lives"
