Turning Point is an apt title for Terrell Bowers’ soulful debut album. At its most simplistic, Turning Point acknowledges the darkness in life while it shines on the color.
The earthy jamming rock runs deep with veins of blues, country, and funk. The stories strike a delicate balance of being light-hearted, serious, and uplifting at the same time.
Turning Point was recorded and produced in the spirit of 1960’s and ‘70’s concept albums, such as The Who’s Tommy, Jethro Tull’s Aqualung and Pink Floyd’s The Wall, as well as modern concept albums such as Green Day’s American Idiot.
Eleven different musicians played on the album, giving it a depth and variety that cannot be accomplished otherwise. It was recorded and mixed using top-notch vintage microphones and outboard gear juxtaposed with modern digital recording technology. The end result is a lush and complex stereo sound with plenty of air around the instruments, befitting of old-school vinyl records. And it’s meant to be turned up loud!
