I’m so upset with myself..I’m just discovering this great artist who Soulbounce mentioned in 2010 as Artist to Follow who captured their attention that year.

Chris Turner, a classically trained crooner deftly combines streams of jazz, hip-hop, funk, and soul in his music; he’s as comfortable with falsetto and scatting as he is with laying down smooth and creative phrasings.  He has performed and toured like Jesse Boykins III, Esperanza Spalding,and Bilal.
