A forerunner in the independent music scene long before it became hip to walk the road less travelled, Sloan is an artist whose passionate work and extraordinary life have fused to burn a new definition for women in music. Grown-up girl style.
An outstanding and highly original singer, Sloan is a compelling performer best known for her rich contralto voice, intensely personal lyrics, and an innovative approach to song.
Hard to categorize, her musical style melds the best of pop, folk, jazz, and blues to create a soulful hybrid.
On A Night Before Christmas is Sloan's first all-live recording and includes guest performances by The Kennedys and Gandalf Murphy and The Slambovian Circus of Dreams. This holiday celebration CD was recorded Live at the Northern Westchester Center for the Arts in Mt. Kisco, NY on December 18th, 2004.
