Manifesto

I am SLOW BEAR. I am a one-man-band who makes alternative music. I like the sound of tape recorders, rivers, typewriters, trains, fire, cheap guitars, night and dawn, footsteps, and my own heartbeat is my favorite drummer.

Impose Magazine did two very beautiful articles on the videos I made with David Van de Weyer. I thank and greet Michael Brummett for his nice and insightful words!

"An ode to peace & humanity, as a demonstration of songsmanship in its purest form. [...]

With a show-don’t-tell mentality, “Normandy And Me” is a stunningly inspired by-product and clear indication of the value in creating music for its own sake, outside of commercial interests. Undeniably, [Slow Bear] has achieved songwriting in its purest form.

This is the beauty of art, music, humanity, creation, and creativity. 5/5"

Pale Morning Fades got some cool reviews from a variety of music zines. Cheers to all who gave it a spin and took the time to write down their thoughts!
"With strong influences of delta blues, grunge and lofi-rock, Slow Bear - on his intriguing debut- combines some of the purest and most honest genres from musical history. [...]

Due to its adventurous, risky and unbridled nature, Pale Morning Fades might take some time to acclimatize. It does not happen every day that one is served a record like this. On top of that, Slow Bear demonstrates that haunting atmospheric imagery and inspired songwriting need not necessarily contradict one another. "
