“Their sound is exhilarating, with flurries of melodic guitars and wailing harp propelling complex improvisations.” -Relix
“Their music wails, whispers and directs our thoughts to the deeper mysteries of life.” -Americana UK
The overarching sonic identity of this New York City-based quartet was forged over the last five years, starting when it was a tenacious duo comprised of guitarist / singer and primary songwriter Jeremy Hilliard and harmonicist / rhythm guitarist / singer-songwriter Ryan Rightmire. As a duo, Turbine started to experiment in odd time signatures and unorthodox compositional structures as they crafted songs that were both accessible and upbeat, despite their remarkable complexity. Now rounded out with Adam Chilenski on bass and Dale Paddyfote on drums, the band has appeared at such renown festivals as Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Wakarusa and Gathering Of The Vibes.
