Sloan Speaks ‘One Chord To Another’

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Sloan’s album “One Chord To Another.” The band is celebrating with a North American tour showcasing the LP in its entirety and a second set filled with hits and fan favorites.

The Canadian quartet is honoring its home country with several dates including stops in Quebec, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in between gigs on both U.S. coasts.

One Chord To Another is Sloan’s best-selling album and was awarded the Juno Award for Best Alternative Album in 1996. The Juno awards are Canada’s equivalent to the Grammys. Keeping the same lineup for a quarter century, Sloan features Patrick Pentland and Jay Ferguson on guitars, Chris Murphy keeping the groove on bass and Andrew Scott setting the tempo on drums.

Sloan’s music combines indie rock and pop with ’60s style riffs.
