Eddie Turner @ Corner Bar
January 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Born in Cuba and raised in Chicago, Eddie “Devil Boy” Turner first picked up a guitar at the age of 12. He honed his craft growing up in Chicago, and later Colorado, and his music shows the diverse influences of the Afro-Cuban sounds of his homeland and the deep blues of his adopted country. A diverse blend of rock, voodoo blues and R&B peppered with African rhythms, Turner’s music moves the feet while simultaneously haunting the soul.
In 1974 Eddie played with Grammy-nominee Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth, followed by stints with Zephyr and the Legendary 4-nikators. In 1995 he helped form the Otis Taylor Band where his intense guitar work contributed to the band’s sound on five CDs and countless tours. His 2005 release Rise resulted in a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut, and was followed by 2006’s The Turner Diaries.
His release, Miracles & Demons, again displays his dynamic guitar work and strong original songwriting. From rap-styled lyrics to funk- and groove-based rock to his searing guitar work, Eddie Turner provides infectious, psychedelic urban blues.
2016 will see the release of his long awaited live CD …… “Naked …. In Your Face”
