Sloan Dylan (ex-Gospel Claws) releases first solo song

Posted by

As Gospel Claws, the then-reigning kings of Phoenix’s indie music scene, began to disperse to Washington, Idaho, and elsewhere, vocalist, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, and handsome man Sloan Walters began working on solo material.

Using his middle name, Sloan Dylan released “Loan Star State” today via Soundcloud. He cowrote the song with Eric Lauterbach in 2015.

In a post on the newly minted band Facebook page, Sloan noted he has “a lot of new stuff coming out this year and am excited to share”

A few years ago, I bumped into Sloan at Crescent Ballroom and asked what his next steps were. He mentioned he had something in the works and that it was going to be a little more country than Gospel Claws. He rattled off a slew of influences that I can’t remember at all.

The single sounds like a natural progression from his days with the Claws. His unique vocals always stood out on every song and now blend perfectly with the jangly guitars of his new project.

Listen to “Loan Star State” below.
