We're soover "performers" who milk pub from a more famous sibling or family member (see Simpson, Ashlee; or Jackson, anyone other than Michael or Janet). Thankfully, that's not the case with indie songstress Sloan Wainwright. The aunt of impossibly suave crooner Rufus Wainwright and sister of singer Loudon Wainwright honed her considerable musical chops in the '80s in the Greenwich Village hipster scene before her relatives came to prominence. (Her sound is classic folk meets Bonnie Raitt or Kate Bush.) A clever, articulate lyricist, she visits Houston today on a short tour dubbed "A Texas Quickie" (behave!).
