A former motorcycle racer and pro photographer who didn't get serious about playing guitar till the tender age of 31, Art Turner has been featured in the popular American magazines Guitar Player and Fingerstyle Guitar, included in the all-star Canadian guitar compilation Six Strings North of the Border Volume II, and performed from Dawson City to Denver, from Prince Edward Island to Vancouver Island, sharing stages with some of the world's best players. Art's unique brand of percussive, hauntingly emotive fingerstyle guitar has been called "feverishly bright and achingly beautiful" (Dirty Linen); "big, bold, atmospheric, percussive, lyrical, full-frontal, tranquil, meditative, and incendiary" (Jurgen Gothe, CBC); and "beautiful... with all the polish in the world without the sterilization that often happens when polish outshines emotion" (William Ackerman, Grammy-winning guitarist).
