Rise

 

Eddie Turner is one of the best blues guitarists alive, and his debut CD for NorthernBlues demonstrates not only his prowess with the instrument, but his terrific songwriting as well.

Born in Cuba and raised in Chicago,Eddie Turner's influences stem from both the Afro-Cuban rhythms of his heritage and his immersion in the music of the time - Blues, Rock and R&B. In 1974 he played with Grammy-nominated Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth. Eddie soon joined Zephyr and wrote the last highly acclaimed Zephyr album "
Heartbeat" with founders Candy and David Givens. Eddie was also a member of the Legendary 4-nikators.

In 1995, Eddie joined Otis Taylor and Kenny Passarelli to form the Otis Taylor Band and was instrumental in creating the Otis Taylor sound. Eddie continually received rave reviews for his incredible psychedelic guitarplaying. Now listeners have the opportunity to hear Eddie unleashed and with his very own band!

"If anybody ever went down to the Crossroads and let the Devil tune his guitar it was probably Eddie Turner. Man, you get chills every time the guy strikes a note! And the expressions he makes while he's talking out each lick leave one convinced he's channelling other-worldly ancestral demi-gods."
