Album Notes
Turning Keys Essentials is 11 tracks never before available in a remastered digital format. This release features all the tracks from the 1992 Turning Keys sophomore album “Waiting” and the 1990 Turning Keys debut E.P. “Opening Doors."

From an amassment of original songs, the synth pop band was founded in 1989 by members Eric C. Powell, Jeffrey Gonzalez, and Andrea Matthews (now Powell). Turning Keys boasted several lineups over the years. Notably, Shannon O'Keefe (now Parish) joined in 1992 contributing vocals to "Waiting."

Turning Keys received acclaim and popularity in the early 90s at a time when electronic music had gone underground. Despite an anti-electronic sentiment in the music industry, a dedicated fanbase in Southern California gathered in small clubs featuring an array of synth pop, industrial, and techno bands. Turning Keys rose up from this scene sponsoring two Synth Tours and playing for such acts as "A Flock of Seagulls," "Depeche Mode," and "Missing Persons".

Mean Street Magazine wrote, "The synth band is proud to wear its New Romantic-era influences on its sleeve. Elements of Depeche Mode an A Flock of Seagulls creep in a just the right moments." Another review boasted Turning Keys' music as featuring "synths galore, outstanding vocals, and amazing hooks. Not a weak track to be found!"
