Introducing: Turtle

Jon Cooper composes and performs as Turtle.  You won't find a wealth of information about Jon, or this kind of turtle, on the internet.  But based on his impeccably constructed track "Who Knows", I think the Glasgow-based artist is going to make a bit splash.  The song reveals itself slowly, beginning with expressive vocals and keys.  Layers of percussion and organ are added as the emotion builds.  Eventually piano and vocals dance over a layer of beats and organ, then terminates unexpectedly.  I find it both haunting and beautiful.  You may stream it here -

For another taste of Turtle's talent, here is a free download of his remix of Maxine Ashley's "Glory Box" is a free download --

Turtle will be releasing an EP named Who Knows soon.
