A Nashville native, Bryan has pioneered a new genre of sound, Soul Rock, which fuses his compellingly soulful voice with honest, meaningful lyrics and scorching guitar in the vein of The Edge and Jimi Hendrix, with the infectious bass lines of Michael Brown and John Shade’s aggressive percussion. Every Bryan Turner show promises and delivers something for everyone – well-crafted originals intermingled with stirring versions of songs you know and love. From shows at the University of Tennessee, Middle Tennessee State and David Lipscomb Universities, and countless club gigs in Middle Tennessee, to releasing his first CD, “What You’re Looking For”, in October 2005, Bryan has been driven to perform and expose an ever-growing audience to Soul Rock.
