Chris Turner: Sir Groove

Chris Turner lives between contemporary and old school music that makes a Hip Hop or Pop enthusiast feel right at home. His sound “bridge[s] the Rhythm and Blues of the 70′s with the Hip Hop and soul of today.” This unique sound is for all generations as Mr. Turner cooks up musical cuisines that pleases the soul.

“R&B birthed me. Some people grow up listening to Van Halen and the Beatles…I grew up listening to Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. My parent’s record collection was crazy growing up so I was playing Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield records at an early age. Funny thing is the older you get the more music you discover, but I always came back to Stevie, Marvin, Curtis, Donny of course and my Dad’s favorite, Al Green. Literally wherever I am, if I hear any Al Green playing, it immediately triggers my childhood, riding in the car with my Dad listening and discussing Al Green and his phrasings and tonality. I love the history of music, so not only do I love R&B, but I love everything that is Rhythm and Blues… Soul, Jazz, Gospel, Funk, Blues. Heritage.” —— By: Interview By DOC & AO
