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.
