Chris Turner
http://christurner.bandcamp.com
In April 2011, he was selected by BET to perform on 106 and Park as an “Artist To Watch” for BET’s Music Matters campaign. http://www.bet.com/topics/c/chris-turner.html Chris released his first single, “Liquid Love,” in 2010, and is working on his album, “LOVEchild.” … Free Music here: http://christurner.bandcamp.com/ “Music is what I do….” This classically trained crooner deftly combines streams of jazz, hip-hop, funk, and soul in his music; he’s as comfortable with falsetto and scatting as he is with laying down smooth and creative phrasings. Growing up Oakland, CA, Chris Turner knew at the age of four that he wanted to be a singer just like his father. As a child, he was member of the Kairos Youth Choir at Crowden Music School, performed at the age of nine with the San Francisco Opera Company, and was a student with the Young Musicians Program at the University of California (YMP), one of the leading music training programs in the nation. Chris graduated from the School of the Arts (SOTA) High School in San Francisco and was selected to be the featured vocalist for the SF Jazz High School All-Stars, opening up for jazz greats like Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, and Michael Brecker. He was later selected to the prestigious GRAMMY High School Jazz Ensemble and performed with many GRAMMY artists including Carlos Santana, Kirk Whalum, and Dave Koz. Chris graduated from the New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2007. He currently tours internationally with Bilal Oliver and has toured with Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown, Bow Wow, Soulja Boy, and Sean Kingston.
