Winner for Best Jazz Vocals fifth year in a row and winner of Best Album for “Live at Vicky’s” at the 2020 Coachella Music Awards, Slim Man will take the stage at the Orpheum Theater on Friday, October 15. Slim Man’s style has been touted as “…a near perfect example of how jazz and soul can be combined as pop.”
When he was 5 years old, Slim Man saw a movie with his dad. That film was "The Five Pennies," and when Slim Boy saw Louis Armstrong play the trumpet and sing, he told his dad, ”That’s what I want to do.” Slim Man studied trumpet for the next 9 years, and taught himself how to play piano and guitar.
After studying piano, composition and harmony at Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD, Slim Man got signed as a songwriter to Motown Records. He’s had songs recorded by The Temptations, Angela Bofill, Carl Anderson and others.
