Slacker Launches Showcase Station Programmed And Hosted By Shawn Hook

SAN DIEGO, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Slacker, Inc. today launched the Shawn Hook Showcase, an exclusive station on Slacker Radio curated and hosted by the emerging singer-songwriter Shawn Hook. Highlighting the songs that inspire and influence him the most, Shawn Hook Showcase is now available in the Artist Showcase station category on Slacker applications for all major smartphones, the iPad and on the web at:


Slacker was introduced to Shawn Hook in Toronto during Slacker Canadian Music Week 2012. After recording three "1-take" tracks that can be seen and heard on Slacker's YouTube channel, they teamed and set up an impromptu performance for an unsuspecting crowd in the hotel lobby of Toronto's Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

Slacker invited Shawn Hook to visit their studio to hand-program his own Artist Showcase station. Shawn performed several incredible acoustic performances in the studio and selected hundreds of his favorite songs for the station, while recording personal stories and candid commentary that can be heard throughout the station. Bands and artists on the Shawn Hook Showcase include Elton John, Jeff Buckley, Deadmau5, Beastie Boys and more. In addition, music from his debut album, Cosmonaut and the Girl, is also featured on the station – including Canadian Billboard Hot 100 single "Every Red Light."

"When I was asked to put together my own station for Slacker Radio, I was really excited. I basically put together the playlist of my life – every song means something personal to me," said Shawn Hook. "I remember where I was, who I was with and what I was doing the first time I heard each song. I guess that's why we all love great music, and I can't think of a better way to enjoy music than Slacker Radio."

To watch exclusive performance videos from Shawn Hook's time in the Slacker studios, as well as an impromptu performance of "Every Red Light" and additional performances during Canadian Music Week 2012, watch the Slacker video playlist at:

"When we connected with Shawn Hook at Canadian Music Week, we saw firsthand the raw talent he possesses," said Scott Riggs, senior director of radio at Slacker. "We were excited to have Shawn create his own station on Slacker Radio and give his fans unique and personal insight into his life experiences and the music that shaped the artist he is today."

Slacker Artist Showcase stations are hosted and curated by the artists, giving listeners insight in to the musical influences and personal stories of teenage rebellion, family memories and career triumphs of their favorite musicians. Artist Showcase stations feature a diverse and growing array of genres, further emphasizing Slacker's dedication to being the ultimate music discovery resource.
