The music of Brett Turner has something most musicians only dream of. With Guitar riffs that rival Tom Petty, lyrical story telling reminiscent Sheryl Crow and Bob Dylan, and the ability to portray the rock and roll spirit of Mr. Johnny Cash himself, this talented one man band is inventing his own genre.
While touring the country promoting his debut studio album 'All Across America' Brett's infectious tunes have spread to fans young and old. As he continues to grow as a singer, a songwriter, and a performer, his style and stage presence have become unmatchable and all his own. 'All Across America' boasts ads on Spike TV and MTV2 and has been highly praised for its originality, and its ability to warrant the question, which song is my favorite?

WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR BRETT?
This past December Pam Matthews happened to be at one of Brett's shows. Pam was previously the general manager of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and voted one of the top 20 most influential women in music in billboard magazine 2007. Today she works as a consultant in Nashville. She has invited Brett to showcase in May (2011) to a group of publishers interested in Brett's songs as well as booking agents interested in sending him on the road to open for their current touring bands.
