A romantic, a dreamer, a poet, & woman of immense ambition and resilience. The moniker borrowed from the sweet-natured, intelligent & spirited deuteragonist in the iconic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is the musical identity of Joannah Jackson, a Sydney-based artist blurring raw introspection with the stylistic and performative elements of '60s French rock of the yé-yé era and fresh electronic pop of today.

As a performer, Sloan's biggest strengths is her ability to give so much and yet remain so enigmatic: there is more to this musician than meets the eye, including life experience, determination, and a heart-on-sleeve attitude. "I romanticise everything. I'm a huge sucker for love... And with my music, I know what I want in life. I am ambitious,” she says. “Music is so powerful in that way too. That’s what makes me gravitate towards it: the power that it has to make you think and have these different emotions and feelings and views.” In this artist’s case, sometimes all at once.

“Moon & Back” (released March 5,2020) is the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut on Warner Music Australia “Nightmare”. “The morning of writing this song I had been on the phone to my mum, hung up the phone saying (as I always do) ‘Love you to the moon & back’ before heading into the room. I had a session & I wrote down the line ‘I love you to the moon and back’ and the rest of the lyrics just came so easily. I had a vision of it being a 2000’s r’n’b track like ‘Gwen Stefani’ 'Luxurious’,” Sloan Says about the writing process of ‘Moon & Back’.”
