Album Notes
The collection of original songs on Life Grows Back find their roots in folk, pop and blues with the ever present understory of Sloan’s impressive contralto.

Life Grows Back is Sloan’s sixth album. Previous CD’s include the self-titled debut Sloan Wainwright (1996), From Where You Are (1998), The Song Inside (2001), Cool Morning (2003), On A Night Before Christmas – Live (2005).

Produced with longtime musical partner and guitarist Stephen Murphy and mixed by renowned music producer Stuart Lehrman (Dar Williams, Jules Shear).

Sloan is the youngest sister to folk-icon Loudon Wainwright and the aunt to the next generation of Wainwright artists, Rufus and Martha.

Guest musicians include nephew Rufus Wainwright (vocal duet) on the track ‘Tired of Wasting Time’. Fred Lieder (cello) on ‘Bad For Her’. David Mansfield (fiddle) on ‘Wild In This World’.

The new CD was recorded earlier this year during the heart of the winter. As a songwriter, Sloan is able to pinpoint and articulate the inspiration for this latest collection: " The Reservoir Road in my hometown of Katonah is a beautiful, powerful and creative place. The songs on Life Grows Back grew from my time on that dirt road these past two years. I've been walking there since I was a little kid. My Mom used to walk it with me. I feel so much at ease and at peace as I venture onto the riding trail to be by the stream. I am at home there with the trees and the rocks and with the water. In the flow. I have so much history there. It is the place that has taught me about impermanence and how to be comfortable with change. Everything is the same and everything is different.”

Sloan will continue to tour both regionally and nationally in support of the CD. Confirmed performances include stops in New York City, New Bedford, Bethlehem, Syracuse, LaGrange, Santa Barbara and more. Sloan’s onstage persona is informal yet dramatic. Audience members often describe her personal appearances as forceful and uplifting. Please visit the Tour page at for a detailed Performance schedule.

wonderfully emotional lyrics with beautiful melodies
This is a great cd. Each song is memorable because you feel it come from the heart, calling forth emotions that many of us have lived. My favorite tracks are When I Walk Away, Tired of Wasting Time and Bad for Her. Can't wait for the next recording.....

The song Meet the Sun Halfway was written about my mother after a chance meeting with Sloan about three years ago. I think it is a terrific song and it is performed beautifully!!! I also find the other titles on the CD outstanding.

Sloan Wainwright stages a performance which brings you in to her world
Truly some spirits illuminate a room and energize us. That energy is contagious and you feel good in their presence. You find yourself smiling, for no reason, just smiling.
Musically, Sloan Wainwright stages a performance which brings you in to her world. Her extraordinary voice captures you immediately. You recognize that the journey you'll take together will be inspiring, soothing and new.


This is a great album; sounds like Sloan is sitting next to me singing. The music is magical and extraordinary, and I find I am letting my breath out at the end of each song after being so drawn in. Great to hear the banjo. Life does grow back. Thank you Sloan and Steve!!!


Sloan Wainwright has done it again! I just love this album. "Wild in this world" is one of the best songs that I have ever heard. I am so glad that I discovered her music! :D
