He also sings in a barbershop choir, which he promises isn’t as dorky as it sounds. “Someone who has no musical background might see it as overly zealous men singing in harmony,” he laughs. “But I get really into it. I’m bringing it back. Justin Timberlake can have sexy, I’ll have barbershop.”

Life Before Paranormal
Though he’s been making his living as a computer programmer (a job he’ll soon be leaving), Sloat never met an artistic pursuit he didn’t like. He did theater and ran the campus television station while in college at Skidmore. He plays guitar (and contributed some of the tunes heard in Paranormal). He also sings in a barbershop choir, which he promises isn’t as dorky as it sounds. “Someone who has no musical background might see it as overly zealous men singing in harmony,” he laughs. “But I get really into it. I’m bringing it back. Justin Timberlake can have sexy, I’ll have barbershop.”

Adjusting to Fame
Sloat’s Facebook inbox has been much more crowded lately. “This one guy was like, ‘We were on a Little League team together. You’re the best, congrats!’ I get some really great stuff.”
