The Turner Brown Band

The Music Lounge and Dom Turner present The Turner Brown Band

When African-American gospel style meets blues.
The Turner Brown Band is a joint project between Australian slide guitarist Dom Turner (Backsliders) and USA-based ‘Sacred Steel’ lap-slide guitar and vocal sensation Nikki D Brown. The result is a merging of Nikki’s southern style US gospel ‘Sacred Steel’ guitar and vocals with Dom’s blues-based sounds forming a duelling slide guitar eclectic and uplifting gospel-blues musical feast.

Nikki D Brown, born into a Church-based lap-slide guitar tradition known as ‘Sacred Steel’, learnt the instrument first-hand from a myriad of 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 have developed over a lifetime of gospel singing, resulting in a rich, raspy soul-vocal style, delivered with impeccable flare and flamboyancy.

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 working with various musical collaborations including Phil Wiggins.
