Greenhouse Presents: Slark Moan

Slark Moan, Nashville based songwriter Mark Sloan's alter ego, creates rock and roll as a coping mechanism.

You could call it high tech, or low fi, but none of that really matters to Moan.

His songs embrace human frailty while rejecting the mythical ideal self so prevalent in modern society, all in a attempt to connect the listener to our forgotten yet intrinsic vulnerability.

Slark Moan begrudgingly fumbles through the muck of self-fulfilling social media and quietly shouts above the noise of digital gurus and business wiz kids, "I have something to say."

It is a simple message.

It is neither a pretentious declaration of enlightenment nor a lofty critique of the world in which all feel alienated. Instead, it is an attempt to capture raw emotions in their unaffected state in hopes of inspiring listeners to each find their own unique truth.

Truth isn't always pretty, it isn't always concise. It can't be thoroughly explained in a four minute song or a buzzy article, but it can be glimpsed in the banality of the human experience.

Slark Moan goes where many brave souls have gone before. He will delve deep into the catacombs of the anthropic condition and come up empty handed. He will expense many failures to uncover something obvious. But, sometimes the obvious truths are the most profound. Sometimes, the answers lay dormant beneath our feet waiting for inspiration.
