Langhorne Slim's thoughtful lyrics and energetic live shows have earned him a reputation as a folk singer-songwriter with a punk-rock sensibility. After success on an indie label, this week he releases his first major label album, Langhorne Slim.

Born Sean Scolnick, the singer is off to a good start. In addition to the album release, just a couple of weeks ago Langhorne Slim made his first ever television appearance — on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Wednesday, he and his band, The War Eagles, stopped by the Bryant Park Project studios. They discussed the new album and performed a few songs, including "She's Gone," which you can watch here.
