Langhorne Slim and the Lost at Last Band play folky set for Cleveland Sessions

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Langhorne Slim (aka musician Sean Scolnick) has performed his folky music all around the world. This past summer, he stopped by the Music Box in Cleveland for a special performance on his “Lost at Last” tour.

The tour supported Langhorne Slim’s “Lost at Last Vol. 1” – a 2017 album full of folky guitar parts and Scolnick’s twangy vocals.

“It’s a more folky kind of record, that sounds like friends in a living room, playing loosely together,” he said. “I wanted to just have songs that didn’t make other records for whatever reason, but were maybe more produced.”

Those living-room songs filled the Music Box this past June, and cleveland.com was there to capture the scene before the show. Langhorne Slim and The Lost at Last Band performed two bouncy songs, “Funny Feeling” and “Life Is Confusing,” for The Cleveland Sessions, presented by Miller Lite. Watch the performance above.

Scolnick has toured with a few different backing bands, including “The Law” and “The War Eagles.” His current backing band, “The Lost at Last Band,” consists of instrumentalist Mat Davidson, keyboardist Casey McAllister, drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and bassist Paul Defiglia.

Though the band’s lineup has only been official since the release of “Lost at Last Vol. 1” on Nov. 10, 2017, Scolnick himself has been playing for two decades.

“I’ve been touring like crazy since I could tour like crazy,” Scolnick said. “It’s been a 20-year road trip. Ever since I was a kid and places would book me, I got on the road.”

He doesn’t plan on slowing down. Scolnick said that “Lost at Last Vol. 1” is just the first of his new string of albums. He confirmed a second “Lost at Last” album to arrive at some point, and even hinted at a few more potential “Lost at Last” albums beyond that.

We chatted with Scolnick after his Cleveland Sessions performance to talk about his tour, upcoming albums and what it’s like to connect with a crowd. Watch the interview below.
