The Turner Diaries


In 1995, Eddie joined Otis Taylor and Kenny Passarelli to form the Otis Taylor Band, and helped create the Otis Taylor sound. Eddie continually received rave reviews for his psychedelic guitar-playing. In 2005, Eddie released his first CD Rise to widespread acclaim, resulting in a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut. Now, Eddie is back to prove that he is a guitar god of the 21st century.

"Powerhouse Eddie Turner is THE breakout blues guitarist of 2006 that you must hear."

-Dave Rubin, Guitar Player Magazine

"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 leaves on convinced he's channeling other-worldly ancestral demi-gods."

-Jeff Jaisun,, May 2003

"He is, after all, one of the better players to tap into the ghost of Hendrix."

-Mike Koster, Thirsty Ear, January 2001

"Eddie Turner sends shafts of electric guitar notes, often bent and jarring, into some dense, mesmerizing passages."

-No Depression, July/August 2002

"Eddie Turner...plays guitar as if he were Jimi Hendrix trying to transpose Mile Davis trumpet."

-Don Wilcock, Record, NY, July 2001

"There are other elements that add to the swooping sounds, such as Eddie Turner's slide guitar that moans and wails, playing with time much like Ry Cooder. It's an ethereal sound, almost cryptic at times..."

-Bill Ribas, NYRock.Com, April 2002

"Few electric guitarists since Hendrix have dared push the blues envelope so far.."

-Greg Quill, Toronto Star, March 24, 2005
