Rock, Matchbox 20, smells like hairspray, Hinder, the best of the 80-90's, ripped jeans, Motley Crue, the sound of wet panties, Tesla, the pitch of breaking eyeliner, Candlebox, drunk mosquito's, Country cookin' and the after glow of being sat on my King Kongs estranged Mother-in-Law, but all ROCK!!

Biography

TURNING POINT BIO. 9/07

Turning Point is a young, energetic, 5 piece pop/rock band from Paris, Texas.
Not many bands have this type of mature song writing ability as well as a strong work ethic at such a formative age.
In the spirit of Hinder and Matchbox 20, their relaxed rock n� roll sound and image is nothing short of normal for this barely out of high school band.
Josh Allen 19, (lead guitar) Jacy Sharp 18, (rhythm guitar) Jay Curt McKee 19, (bass) Daniel Hayes 20, (vocals) and Kenn Youngar [stopped counting at 21](drums) round out this Lone Star State incarnation.
Like most bands, this rock and rollercoaster has had its ups and downs. The band took a break almost a year ago when lead guitarist Josh Allen saw opportunity to travel overseas with a Dallas, Texas rock band Strangleweed managed by Kenn. Their international tour took them to The Pacific to perform at naval bases for the troops and to see parts of the world like Diego Garcia that even signed bands will never get to see. Local news, television and radio jumped on board to commemorate the occasion as they headed to Japan, Singapore and beyond the Indian Ocean on a tour of the Pacific with the Armed Forces Entertainment Program in full support.
That friendship with Kenn would prove invaluable when the opportunity arose to find a quick replacement Drummer in Turning Point the day before their video shoot for �On My Way Home�. This song was written overseas on that tour in dedication to the troops and their families. (Available to download on www.ourmillionsalutes.com)
The most recent National Tour with Immortal Recording artists Adema proved that after 32 days of constant touring only whetted their appetite for the road.
Their up coming South American co-headlining tour with Candlebox is just the tip of the iceberg of good things to come for this light hearted and easy going group.
So what is Turning Points take on their place in the music business?
They believe it can be summed up in a quote by philosopher Oswald Spengler.

��our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us; to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves; to act in such a way that some part of us lives on.�
