About The Event

Listen Up House Concerts is excited to present S.R. Laws for the first time and we can't wait to share his super cool songs and storytelling with our friends under the redwoods!

I work at songwriting with a fair amount of tempestuousness. I get inspired to put together words, music and melodies out of an appreciation for storytellers John Hiatt & Rodney Crowell and songwriters like Neil Finn, Chuck Prophet and Ron Sexsmith. 

 I grew up in Northern California.  My father worked as a trash collector before the times of automatic bin lifters. I would dig through large black garbage bags full of old 45 records all afternoon.  “Someone must have tossed them out of their collection.” I’d think..but, there they were in front of me and I needed them! There were some caked with garbage and grime and others pristine without a single scratch.  I was hooked on the feeling of anticipation while inspecting the records for playability, but more excited to drop the needle and hear what’s next. 

Years later, I’d take a pilgrimage to Texas with two suitcases and $500 in the bank.  I used the time to cut my teeth among the open-mics and songwriters’ nights. Those hit or miss shows were in abundance at the time I was around town, I really got into listening to the other writers play and talk about their music.  The “Live Music Capital of the World”, Austin yielded a bounty of musical experiences that I still draw on today.

I live in Sonoma County, California.  As a touring artist and singer-songwriter for my own band The Heartsleeves I stay busy.  I invite you out for a spell or two as I share my music one person at a time in the unknown crazy world we in which we live.

My EP- “A.M. Sessions” is out now. I am very proud to have made this terrific set of songs with my old and a few new friends. I'll tell you about it sometime... please pick up a copy at a show or online. - SR
