I am SLOW BEAR. With my music I hope to make a better place of this world. Maybe, from time to time, it will make a difference for the good.
I play on my own but that doesn’t necessarily mean I make quiet or introspective music. I sing and songwrite so I guess I can be labeled as that. But I’d prefer to be seen as a one-man-band who plays alternative rock music. It happens to be without a drummer or a bass player but the goal is similar: to bring across some of the energies that tremble in me; to ride the lightning!
My new album, FUCKING OFF is now out on Wiener Records and Dopey Sonofabitch Music.
Why Granola? Because GI's music is at once soft yet possessed of crunch. Because it's best served by the heaping bowlful, the better to appreciate its myriad ingredients. And because, like granola, it's familiar and classic but not too classic...
And why Import? Because of the collaborative and wide-ranging nature of the project....What's more, GI will import to the repertoire of originals a select corpus of covers, mostly Canadian
