‘The Turner Brown Band’, is a joint Australia/USA musical collaboration between Australian slide guitarist and music producer Dom Turner (of awarded blues act ‘Backsliders’ fame) and Ohio-based ‘Sacred Steel’ lap-slide guitar as well as vocal sensation Nikki D Brown.
Nikki D Brown learnt the instrument first-hand from myriad steel guitar masters including Ruth Durdel, Yolondo Ramsey, Del Grace and Henry Tyson, melding them all into her unique and wildly gritty guitar sound. Her powerful vocals and performance developed over a lifetime of gospel singing, resulting in a rich, raspy soul-gospel vocal style delivered with impeccable flare. Renowned Australian blues-based slide-guitarist and vocalist, Dom Turner has spent more than 30 years touring the festival circuit with Backsliders as well as collaborations, including Phil Wiggins and Dom Turner.
See them live at Milton Theatre, Saturday, August 4.
