Sloan Wainwright

A unique hybrid of pop, folk, jazz and blues

The younger sister of witty singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, Sloan Wainwright has taken her own path in building a musical career. A unique hybrid of pop, folk, jazz and blues, Wainwright’s music is unified by her melodious tone and rich, powerful contralto. Sloan has an ability to combine sensitive original songs with unique renditions of songs by Sly and the Family Stone, the Grateful Dead and the Beatles, Wainwright has become one of contemporary folk music's promising new artists.

According to Dirty Linen, Wainwright's "voice carries the forthright, husky self-assertion of Joan Armatrading's early recordings; her unorthodox phrasing and poetic enunciation would please the young Tim Buckley; and her melodies are the tantalizing equivalent of smoky, tantalizing aromas emanating from a soul kitchen."
