Quotable's:

"Mike has a terrific rock sound, with a bit of jazz and funk thrown in, that you can't help but enjoy." - Kelly McKay, WZPL radio in Indianapolis

"(Mike has) managed to create an entire cd of songs that are unique, yet seem like they belong together on the same album. That's not an easy task."- Tony Valle; Promethius Consulting

"...straightforward, mellow classic rock with a touch of soul and lots of heart."- Kit Malone; Indianapolis Songwriters Exchange

"Pieces of Me is aptly titled, and in my estimation, provides an entertaining look into the heart and soul of an accomplished songwriter. Do yourself a favor, and find a copy of Mike Turner's album Pieces of Me! You'll definitely be glad that you did!" - Mark Lush; midwestbands.com

"Without a doubt, the songwriting is this record's forte. The cuts on Pieces of Me are classically orchestrated rock songs that are deep without alienating the listener. More importantly, none of the songs on this disk are bad. Mike has managed to avoid putting a song on here where a listener might want to skip past it." Tommy Miller; indianapolismusic.net

Bio:

Indianapolis singer/songwriter, Mike Turner took his rock, folk, soul, jazz, and funk influences to develop a sound that is recognizable and all his own. He has created songs that are heartfelt & passionate. His influences include great songwriters and fiery live performers like Edwin McCain, Stevie Wonder, Sonia Dada, Train, Bob Schneider/The Scabs, Tonic, etc. The result is... everything that is great in the singer/songwriter genre.

When Mike set out to record his debut album, "Pieces Of Me", he made it clear this was not to be a typical 1st time demo. "I wanted this CD to stand up to any national release you could throw at it, both in terms of song writing, musicianship, and production... Not to be over-produced, but to have clarity and sound great on any system." -Mike Turner

From the first notes of the opening song, "The Life We Used To Know", you know there is nothing "typical" about this release. The 2nd track, "The Air To Me", pulls you in with its hauntingly emotional sound. His voice is unmistakable. He is a rare type of soul singer with the ability to get the listener involved in what he is saying poetically. This 11 track CD is rare in that you can listen from start to finish. Skip over nothing!

Mike Turner ~ vocals, guitar
Jeff Meese ~ Bass, vocals
David Clawson ~ Drums, percussion
