Sloan Wainwright belongs to a musical dynasty of impossibly gifted singer-songwriters. Her family tree (brother and folk-­music luminary Loudon Wainwright, sister-­in-­law Kate McGarrigle, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs.

Defying standard categorization, Sloan 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. The end result is a unique and soulful hybrid. 

With a solid and impressive discography of 8 original CD releases to her credit, Sloan continues to write, sing and perform live. In addition, Sloan has written numerous musical compositions for theater and dance and teaches at many of the best-­known master songwriter series and workshops. Sloan’s open spirit and first-­hand experience is welcome—year after year—in the musical classrooms of such prestigious song camps as The Swannanoa Gathering, Summersongs, Wintersongs, WUMB Radio’s Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW), Moab Folk Camp and Lambs Retreat. Sloan is an independent artist making grown-­up girl music in the truest sense.
