Hard to categorize, Sloan’s musical style melds the best of pop, folk, jazz, and blues to create a soulful hybrid. Her personal appearances are forceful and uplifting, her stage persona self-described as “we take our audience on a journey; we come in full tilt and do our show.”  A member of the highly acclaimed musical Wainwright family she is Loudon Wainwright’s sister and aunt to Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche.  And true to the family business, she maintains the legendary gift of music and songwriting which she delivers in her own, powerfully unique style.
