A thoughtful, witty lyricist, it’s not surprising that Sasha Sloan has penned hits for Camila Cabello, Idina Menzel, and Kygo, but when her words are paired with her own wistful, gentle voice, it all comes together in a magical way. Self-effacing and intelligent, Sloan’s music is not just for moody teens, it’s emotionally mature and wise music for anyone. This is evident in such songs as “Older,” a meditation on letting go of one’s past, or in “Dancing with Your Ghost,” depicting the bittersweet loss of love, as well as “Smiling When I Die” which is the perfect great escape road trip song if I’ve ever heard one. She’ll be joined by Katy Perry protege, CYN, whose youth-powered, quirky pop will provide a bouncy counterpart to Sloan’s sweet, lush dreams.
