Dayglow is Sloan Struble’s musical identity. This project began when he created his first album, Fuzzybrain, in his bedroom at age 17. Now, at just 23, he is on a big headliner tour where he played at The Riviera in Chicago and now at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The Ryman has absolutely fantastic acoustics and it sounds great from every seat in the house.
Early in the set, he plays “Something” from his second album, Harmony House. It’s a great example of his upbeat and happy style.
His cover of the 80’s disco hit “Funkytown” by Lipps Inc. was excellent and fit in perfectly into his dance pop setlist.
Another very fun moment was his cover of “You Can Call Me Al”. He danced all over the stage in pure joy. Everyone sang along: “If you’ll be my bodyguard / I can be your long lost pal / I can call you Betty /And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al”!
For the third to last song, they play “Can I Call You Tonight?”, which is his biggest hit so far with over 419 million streams on Spotify.
He plays “Close To You” to end the set. It’s such a enthusiastic dance song that is very similar to the style of The Naked And Famous and Passion Pit. Everyone is up and dancing along.
