Biography

The lights where shinning, and the audience was screaming, but all that was going threw his mind
was that he had just won the "Top Male Vocalist of South Africa " award. That was 1964 and the group
was Calders Collection, Sloan's dad was the lead singer. With such a history, It was fate that Sloan
would soon follow in his fathers footsteps. But it took awhile before Sloan knew...

At the age of 21 Sloan decided to go to music school, why? "I thought it might be cool, I didn't know what to do with my self and my mother was hasseling me to study something". So he inroled at the N.S.A. And within the first term he got promoted up a year because of his excellent marks. Within the
next year he won the coveted "Songwriter of the year", produced his 2nd C.D. and toured the coast "I didn't have a clue that music was so much a part of me before I studied it, it was just like wham! "Here you go!
your talented in music!" my family and I where suprised, they thought I was gonna go and study
something else after music". Fortunatly it didn't pan out that way and Sloan, after he graduated, began working in a small studio. After completing 3 albums for an opera singer Sloan decided to go on his own and started his own studio called "Found Da Sound".

With influences like Queen, Avril lavinge, Bread and Eric Clapton, Sloan has made a unique sound of his
own. Performing at the World Aids day, appearing in the musical "Disco Fever" and doing session vocals are all just stepping stones to Sloan's ultimate dream of performing before Tens of thousands "As much as I love producing and the studio, the stage is where its at, for some reason its where I belong, in front of
people listening to what I gotta say"

Lyrics

She was such a beauty queen

Written By: Sloan Inns

She was such a beauty Queen 31/7/04

Verse1:

I was just talking to my friends and walking
then out came, whats here name, she smiled, I did the same
my heart droped, like a stone, I followed to her home
she said later, to my friends, then took me, to my end

Chorus:

She was such a beauty queen, maybe just turned 18
and I was such a lade back guy, I did not really know why
she took me into her room, closed the door with her broom
I was such a lade back guy, I did not really know why

Verse2:

there I was just gawking, she stoped me from talking
she sat down on her bed, looked up and then said
"hello there, whats your name, please come here and do the same"
I listened, so stuiped, I did not see cupid

Bridge:

I should've looked up, should have sat up, should have woke, from this dream
should've said love, thats enough, I like you, lets keep it clean
should've run round, up and down, should've maybe, even screamed
but I didn't, but I couldn't, yeah I should of, kept it clean

When the Summer came

Written By: Sloan Inns

When summer came 4/04

Verse1:

I wonder when the summer came
and took away the winter pain
as if to say the time has come
when all of man will be one

Chorus:

Its all confusion its all delusion
something to believe in something to be free in

Verse2:

I wonder when the summer came
and took away our sinful shame
As if to say the time has come
when all of that will be one

Verse3:

I wonder when the summer came
and washed away all our blame
as if to say the time has come
when all our lies have come to none

Bridge:

Im looking around, ive searched and not found
yeah im looking around, summers not to be found
