Tracks: SLOWPOKE – Came Up

August 24, 2012

We write about music here at The iM with one goal in mind; to expose people to bands and or artists they might not otherwise be familiar with. Sometimes you will know these acts and sometimes you won’t – that is a fair assumption to say the least.

We were recently introduced to Christopher Shannon (aka SLOWPOKE) by a friend and chances are, you’ve never heard of him. If you have… lucky you. If you haven’t, now’s your chance to get familiar via the Soundcloud embed below. Trust us when we say, this is a fine piece of work.

Presumably, there’s more music on the horizon and once we know more, we’ll be sure to let you know.
