Meet The Artist
Chris Sloan is a singer-songwriter located in Seattle, Washington, with attention-grabbing, powerful, raspy vocals. 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 also recently recorded his music video and a new live version of single "These Walls" at the famous London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA. “These Walls” is the second song off the EP, dropping November 11th. Sloan’s unique gritty voice sets him apart not only as an artist but as a polished singer and songwriter as well. His songs stretch across genres from acoustic, indie, pop, and alternative mixed with a bit of rock.
“Where Do I Stand” isn’t really your typical breakup song. “Where Do I Stand” is a beautifully written song about the confusion and swirling storm of emotions that come with a break-up. Will the relationship resume? Is the fracture permanent? 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 about the dark and cold abyss of uncertainty. It’s about the push and pull that can happen when a relationship is still new and growing and two people are trying to figure it out and find their place. 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
