Local musician keeps blues alive in Windsor
By Joe Gibel
A local singer-songwriter uses his passion for the blues and rockabilly to entertain audiences.
The South River, Ontario native found a love for the blues and knew he just had to get it out to an audience.
“Live music is where I always wanted to dwell, always what I wanted to do. Even before recording it was performance,” said Slim. “All live music presentations were just in my blood and I had to get it out.”
Over the last few years he has made a reputation for himself with his live stage presence. With his charismatic performances, Slim is not afraid to get up close and personal with the audience, often leaving the stage area and getting right in the crowd.
“Slim is the embodiment of raw blue,” said Luc Michaud, producer at Highland studios in Windsor “He’s one of the most charismatic characters I’ve ever seen on stage and in the studio. I really enjoy his work.”
Whether it is a crowd of 10 or a packed house, Slim puts 100 per cent into each and every one of his performances and says he is not just in it for money but is driven strictly by passion.
“You can make a living if you live for the music. It can lead to big bucks if you want, but if you are in it for money, I would not want to listen. Music should be about inner-emotion and art,” said Slim.
Slim can be seen at many venues around the Windsor area and performs every Sunday night at the Dominion House on Sandwich St. in Windsor.
