Pay to Play

Slim Sly Slender

Slim Sly Slender is the visual artist turned musician from Baltimore, who finds inspiration everywhere he can. He made the switch to music after a causal warehouse jam session and hasn't turned back.

He just released his 6th album in 8 years, 'Pay to Play.' It's a unique blend of genres with a frisky 60's pop rock undertone throughout most of the songs. But he does more than explore the bounds of genre. He sings about everything from the hip-hop "Black Charger" inspired by his drive from Baltimore to DC, to the rock-based "War Paint" about the masks we present to others due to societies "rules."

Slim Sly Slender's music is meaningful and catchy. He isn't afraid to use music as an extension of his heart. 'Pay to Play' is a perfect example of his musical abilities intersecting with his engrossing narratives.
