Slowcrash is a Durham based band who performs gigs all over Ontario. Szymon having worked with Chris, realized they share similar musical influences and began playing with Chris and some former members of the band. Playing music is/was what lead these two to lay the foundation for where Slowcrash is today. As some former members departed, Slowcrash grew stronger with new members taking their place. Neil was a recent addition to the band and now we have our newest member Jordan Ciesielski on bass to fill a solid rhythm section. Look for them at a Bar/Pub near you soon.
