Biography

By day, Daniel and Tricia Turner live a very ordinary life raising two young boys and seeding and harvesting organic grains on their farm on the Manitoba prairie. But when night falls and the boys are fast asleep in bed, dirty diapers and plaid shirts stained with tractor grease are abandoned for the cathartic release and magical fusion of electric guitar and drums dancing beneath the twinkling lights of their basement jam room. It is here that the Turners spend countless hours discovering raw, simplistic sounds that are both gritty and melodic. The two move equally between electric guitar, drums and vocals and share in songwriting that is refreshingly honest and self-reflective. Since meeting 7 years ago, The Turners have recorded 3 albums at home and recorded a 6-song EP with Garageland Studio in Brandon in early 2012. They have toured the Manitoba Festival circuit, opening for bands like Imaginary Cities, Nathan, Kinnie Starr and Federal Lights. They are currently recording their upcoming full-length album, with a much-anticipated Spring 2013 release.
