Working with some of this lot, you have to get used to learning keyboard parts in a very limited time and writing 'on the spot' keyboard parts during recording studio sessions!
I have experience as a Musical Director in rock and pop (Fish) and as a recording engineer with software programs (Sonar, Cubase, Logic, ProTools).
Keyboards K.O.'ed? Digital Piano died? Hammond hiccupped? Wurlitzer EP w??kered? Then there is always the possibility I may be able to fix it as this is one of the other things I do with my time when working from home. The other is working at:
HAVEN KEYBOARDS - the Ipswich based keyboard shop and Hammond specialist. For more information, check the link to their website from the links page.
Reviews & Quotes
"...it all really benefits from some exquisite keyboard playing - Nice one, Tony!" - Kevin Gerb, Word Of Mouth
"...itís easy to see Tony doesn't like to be pigeonholed...if it's bespoke composing or playing you're after... heís the one" - Tony Shevlin, East Anglian Daily Times
"...Fish benefits from having his best backing band for some time. In particular Tony Turrell on keyboards... does justice to the material" - Nick Shilton, Classic Rock
"The influences of Rick Wakeman, Tony Banks and Jools Holland can be heard without a trace of plagiarism... Tony's playing deserves credit. More's the pity then that I can't find any tracks on the album that I like" - Richard Burns, Blackpool Courier (a review of 1st solo album, Fragmented. Still makes me smile.)
