Sarah Slaton is a singer/songwriter that expresses pathos both poignant and relatable (Denver Westword). An Arkansas native, Slaton taught herself to play guitar in the shadow of the Ozarks before making her way out West to Denver. Slaton founded and fronted the Colorado trio, EDISON, recognized for their tireless touring efforts. The band traveled over 150,000 miles between 2014-2018 and with a relentless DIY approach signed with Rhyme & Reason Records (pronoun, Red Baraat). Edison toured with Iron & Win, Jared & The Mill, and opened for Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov, Andrew McMahon, and Shakey Graves. The band saw national acclaim with their debut LP, Familiar Spirit, with positive reviews from Consequence of Sound, No Depression, and features on Daytrotter, Jam In The Van, and Relix Sessions.
Slaton stepped out with her first solo single with a summer ready tune, Dance In The Sun. The song channels Fleetwood Mac with it's multi-layered vocals and vintage guitar tones. The Colorado artist flew to Los Angeles to work with Lewis Pesacov (Local Natives, Nikki Lane) who produced and engineered the co-write. His neighbor, Garrett Ray (Vampire Weekend), swung by to lay down the drums.
The Colorado artist heads into 2020 with collaboration on the mind after assembling a band of friends who join Slaton on stage. Mainstays are Sarah Joelle (of Lola Rising) on the keys, Lief Sjostrom on the cello, Matt Fink (of Lola Rising) on the drums, and KIND DUB joining festival sets featuring their collabortion tracks "Limited Time" and "Elevated Life".
