Lead Singer & Guitarist Julian Neville,
NBM Artists Profile — Turrentine Jones
Purveyors of trebley riffs, tube driven Hammond organs and the odd sleazy guitar solo; Turrentine Jones have forged a sexy, modern blues sound. “It’s honest, it’s raw with swirling organ parts, rapid fire percussion and rousing harmonies” – 4Q MAGAZINE.
Influenced by the likes of the The Animals and The Doors – Turrentine Jones have built an underground fanbase through near-constant touring of small clubs, frequent demo releases and music festival appearances, and brand endorsements.
The three-piece band (lead singer and guitarist Julian Neville, drummer Chris Carcamo and Hammond organist Thomas Scotson) have been rewarded for their hard work over the course of this year. Le Début, their first two-track release found its place in the charts after its February 2012 release. From this record, the single Slam the Door reached No. 13 on the Australian Music Charts, and was televised after the band performed live on Channel 4’s Hit the Road Jack programme.
Founding member Julian Neville “escaped the scene” in his native Australia from touring with his original band alongside several artists including; David Knopfler of Dire Straits and Colin Hay of Men at Work. In his own words “I gave myself too many distractions and felt I wasn’t getting anywhere — Just blasting and laughing my way through the time. It was great. I had fun. But I needed a release.” — Which lead his musical journey onwards to Manchester, England.
Their distinctive sound has earned praise from radio presenters SHAUN KEAVENY (BBC 6) “Very Booker T & the MGs…! I quite like it!” and DANIELLE PERRY (Q Radio), amongst others, with an emphatic vocal that has drawn comparisons to the likes of Mick Jagger and Eric Burdon.
Building on the release of their third single Show Me Mercy, the band signed an endorsement deal with clothing brand OK Now and inked a deal with touring agency Spoilt Kid, which already houses the likes of Mike Joyce (The Smiths), Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets), Bez (Happy Mondays) and Drew McConnell (Babyshambles/The Vaccines).
