Sloan has been the lead singer of several bands, including Mercy Parker, Mudsill Widows (Alongside Ben Smith, the drummer from rock and roll hall of fame band Heart), and SideDown, performing on stages since he was 18. Sloan is incredibly excited to release his first solo EP, Into The Shade, written and recorded at the legendary Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, WA. His first track “Where Do I Stand” is your harmonious, break-up song with an incredibly catchy vocal melody you’ll be singing for weeks.

Sloan’s unique gritty voice sets him apart not only as an artist but as a polished singer and songwriter as well.

Where Do I Stand
“Where do I Stand” isn’t really your typical breakup song. It is a beautifully written song about the confusion and swirling storm of emotions that come with a break-up. Is the fracture permanent? Will the relationship resume? Is time apart the saving factor that can mend the connection? “So tell me, where do I stand? Do you need space or my hand”? It’s also about caring enough for someone to let them go in order for them to be happy. However, letting go isn’t always easy to do when you still love them. It’s even harder watching them move on with someone else.
Sloan also recorded his music video and a new live version of the single “These Walls” at the famous London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA with legendary producer Johnathan Plum. Both versions of the song are available on all streaming platforms.
