Art Effects (2005)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Hi, my name is Art Turner. I compose and perform Christian instrumental music featuring piano. Some people think the music I play is similar to music by artists like John Tesh, David Lanz, Jim Brickman, and Yanni.

My "hometown" is Jacksonville, Alabama, but I'm currently living in Singapore. I was born in Frankfurt, Germany, and my sons were born in Texas. I'm never sure how to answer the question "where are you from?"

My current CD is called “Art Effects.” It's mostly solo piano with five hymn arrangements and six original songs. The majority of the songs are relaxing, contemplative, meditative pieces in the style of new age piano.

Although this is my debut CD release, many of my works have been publicly performed, including choral arrangements, a Japanese ballet, several corporate video soundtracks, and even telephone "hold" music.

I began playing piano at age five. I studied music in college, but actually have a Ph.D. in political science, not music.

Since 1998, I have been working with humanitarian aid and cross-cultural communication projects around the world. My family and I have lived in Cyprus, Russia, India, and Singapore.
