Born in Cuba, raised in Chicago Eddie "Devil Boy" Turner honed his craft growing up in Chicago & later Colorado, 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 & Mother Earth, followed by stints with Zephyr & 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 & 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, displays his dynamic guitar work & strong original songwriting. From rap-styled lyrics to funk & groove-based rock to his searing guitar work, Eddie Turner provides infectious, psychedelic urban blues.
