Album Notes
With a warming nostalgia at its core, Kelly Sloan’s Always Changes, carries an air of experience. Cycling through a variety of genres and production techniques, each song graduates beyond the commonplace. Opener, “Hurricane,” sets this tone with slow strums and the warning “Somebody’s going to take it all away.” Accented by ambient guitars and a swirling organ, it builds into the chanting finale of, “I will bring, a hurricane.” Hushed and ominous, it’s the perfect entry point to this accomplished debut.

A native of the Ottawa Valley, Sloan initially cut her teeth performing with Adam Puddington. A preeminent purveyor of Canadiana, his roots driven and literary songwriting style made a lasting impression. In 2007, Sloan traveled to Nova Scotia to work on his new record, Back In Town. Following the sessions, she decided to remain in Dartmouth, NS.

Shortly after, Sloan began work on her own songs for the first time. Upon the suggestion of her roommates and former Guthries members, Dale and Brian Murray, she wrote and tracked her first composition, “Only Dance Slow With You.” Encouraged to continue with new material…and with none to draw on, Sloan found herself trying to outpace the recording process with songwriting.

“We had the equipment so it was just a matter of creating some material,” claims Sloan. “We managed to whip the first song off in a couple of hours, so they suggested I should probably write another song. Most of them went so quickly that I had to keep running back upstairs to pen another song. Before I knew it, I had an album and thought, 'man, now I have to do something with this.’ I was writing death certificates at the time, so anything would have been better.”

The resulting, Always Changes, features guests Kinley Dowling, Dan Ledwell, Adam Baldwin, Ruth Minnikin, Rob Crowell, Serge Samson and The Stables. Produced by the Murray brothers and Sloan, the album ranges from the ragtime-feel of “Waiting” to elegant strings of “Sophia.” With a grounding tone set by opener, “Hurricane,” Always Changes shows remarkable range and depth for a songwriter so early in her career.

Aside from her solo work, Sloan has been performing around the East Coast regularly, backing artists such as Matt Mays, Ruth Minnikin, and Christina Martin.
