“Coming from the tradition of bar-bound piano players with a tip jar full of stories to tell, Dave Turner knows how to relate a memorable story over a simple yet well-crafted melody.” (Mountain Xpress)

“Candid and visceral portraits of real life against a hearty backdrop of piano driven songs. Utilizing the tapestry of American life is either done adroitly or ham-handed, but Turner is frank in his delivery without resorting to catchiness or cliche. Turner glows.” (Southeast Performer)

“With the narrative depth of short stories the songs never overstay their welcome.” (Steve Shanafelt, music journalist)

“A soulful slice of American life that I could listen to all night.” (Music Movies and Media, Ireland)

“Inspired by artists such as Elton John and Carole King, Turner also reveals the rougher edges of Tom Waits and James McMurtry in his lyrics.” (Asheville Citizen-Times)

“Turner stands out as a solo pianist.” (Black Mountain News)

“Tracks that pull you in with their presence.” (Jeff Knorr, Producer)

“His vocal timbre is akin to Van Morrison in later years with the additional salt of Leon Russell. What Turner brings only comes with time and experience.” (Brian Tucker, music journalist)
