An Evening with SLOAN
Got Pop? Concerts, Gee Dan Productions & 97.3 The Eagle presents Sloan!
Sloan is a Toronto-based rock/power pop quartet from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Throughout their 25 plus-year career, Sloan has released 12 LPs, and the band has received nine Juno Award nominations, winning one.
Sloan is without doubt the most truly democratic group in the annals of rock, with Jay Ferguson, Chris Murphy, Patrick Pentland, and Andrew Scott all contributing original compositions to each record, equal partners with equal say over every aspect of their work.
Sloan 12 is the 12th album from the Canadian powerpop perennials, which means it’s as good as Led Zeppelin IV, Black Sabbath’s Vol. 4, and Chicago 4 all put together. But seriously: not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record, and not only are they the rare band to make it to their 12th record with all four original members, and not only are they the rare band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are equally prolific songwriters, they’re arguably the only band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are both equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. On 12, each of the four principals contribute three stellar songs that play to their core strengths: Patrick Pentland with the soaring rock anthems, Chris Murphy with the playful, participatory sing-alongs, Jay Ferguson with the jaunty prog-pop gems, and Andrew Scott with the whimsical innerspace explorations. Says Murphy, “I guess with the album title, we are showing off the fact that we have 12 records.”
