"Special thanks to my longtime friend and collaborator Stephen Murphy. Together with the help of family, friends and fans, we have created this project - a rediscovery of and reconnection to, then songs that have inspired and influenced us both deeply." Sloan Wainwright
Contemporary folk-pop singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright – youngest sister to folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, and the aunt to the next generation of Wainwright artists, Rufus, Martha and Lucy – has just released 'Rediscovery'.
This new work from the artist is a collection of hand picked cover tunes, and can be described as a musical rediscovery of, and reconnection to, ten songs that have inspired and influenced music fans through the years. Stand out tracks include the fan-favorite 'Ring of Fire', a sweetly pretty version of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Mercy Me/The Ecology’, and a stark, soulful interpretation of Neil Young’s ‘After The Gold Rush’.
Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles: pop, folk, jazz and blues held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto with the end result a unique and soulful hybrid.
