Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Troy Turner is an artist not easily pigeon-holed. He has hung out with many of the earlier generation … including Tabby Thomas, Buddy Guy, Henry Gray and Raful Neal. He has spent an inordinate amount of time with the Neal family and has nearly been considered a member of that first family of the blues. He has played behind Raful Neal, toured with Kenny Neal and was in a high school garage band with Kenny’s younger brothers, Frederick and Darnell. But Troy has influences stretching beyond the Baton Rouge blues scene, from the late Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Prince.
