The Spiel

I was born and hardly raised in Cincinnati, Ohio into classical, jazz & folk blues traditions.
Cincinnati was the home of King Records, the Big Red milling machines, close to the Wright Brothers aviation, The Mills Brothers birthplace, Chicago blues, The Grand Old Opry Nashville, the Kentucky and West Virginia coal mines, the Hillbilly Highways, I-75 and the Chitlin circuits.

I decided to pursue music because of my father Glenn Milburn Sloan (bass trombonist for the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Tanglewood/Boston, St. Louis and Indianapolis Symphonies and The Glenn Sloan Jazz Orchestra), the piano lessons encouraged by my mother Mary Lee Rahn-Sloan, Howard Early jazz guitarist at Buddy Rogers Music, sister Carrie's record collection + philosophy and jam sessions together with Reed Ghazala.

I compose eccentric and eclectic world diverse musics from traditional to electronic. I have the great fortune to tour and record folk to industrial art rock in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Europe, Japan, to have studied with Ron Carter at City College CUNY and with Hilly Crystal at the infamous rock music club CBGBs. Hilly released Ritual Tension 'Blood Of The Kid' on Celluloid Records. I recorded often at the Martin Bisi studio, Brooklyn, NY.

I worked in the NYC East Village with Ritual Tension, Purple Geezus, Rats Of Unusual Size (1st studio album), False Prophets 'Invisible People', Stephen Moses of Alice Donut, Knox Chandler, Joe Trump and many others.

I occasionally work for Elliott Sharp and was with Rhys Chatham for the 'Crimson Grail' performance @ Lincoln Center 2010, to name just a few. (Refer to discography) I collaborate with the reunion of Ritual Tension, artist Maggie Ens and the Black-Hole Factory/TiG, Braunschweig Germany.

Livin' by the nickel and dye by the dime I subside my music with blue denim stylee. Out East I work concert and theater technologies + I.A.T.S.E. Local 52 for T.V. and Film. I spent a lot of time outside Manhattan in the wildflower horticulture industry.
I am recording, soundtracking and mastering previous audio library. Band tours are TBA.

My musical influences began with thunderstorms, classical music, local 50/60s style AM radio, Jazz, FM radio pioneers, rolling banjo arpeggios that led me to Flamenco guitar (Spain's original blues music). The influence of folk, pop, hard rock music sparked my desire to travel with music groups. In the mid-west I worked with Bloomington, Indiana's Cathy and Stuart Norton, Jeff Lee and some I.U. geeks. There was 'Sanstone' outta Cincinnati/Kalamazoo who's recordings I'm trying to find... After success with the East Village New York scene I went to Spain in 2004 to study guitar at the wonderful Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas.

I consider myself most fortunate to have lived in the American Century that gave birth to many great industrialists and artists.

'Forever Moonlight' Cd started out as my first solo folk album. All the rhythm and vocal tracks were recorded live with very few overdubs. The team of musicians on the album turned out to be a bunch of powerful wild horses you can hear trying to run away with some of the songs. A few of the tracks are a lot more intense then originally planned. So, what isn't in this life?
That folk lullaby bucket kicker album sways and rocks pretty hard with more and less subtle nuances. It is eccentric as hell, classical by nature giving an acoustic-punk industrial tinge of wood shavings like a lumberjack in a China shop.
Meet Astor Piazzola, Nick Drake, Jackson Brown, John Prine, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash all rolled up into one big Moon Ball of Forever.

My goals are to produce/co-produce the next two Forever Moonlight albums "Pillows of Fire" and "Medicine Ball" by early 2020, Ritual Tension's next LP 2019 and resume my bass intensive rock band DIVINE BONES.
