Where people listen
Over the years, Turner transgressed from a fluorescent adolescent to an artist with both poetry and irregularity at the forefront of his sound. While most musicians spend years mastering their instrument before they even think about starting a group, for Turner, it was quite the opposite. After Turner and Jamie Cook received guitars as Christmas presents one year, Turner decided they would play as a band. He originally enlisted Glyn Jones, a fellow high school student to sing in the band. This compelled Turner to finally get over his nerves and start singing for the band, and he is now renowned as one of the most confident and energetic performers around.
