Mick Turner


For the last two decades, Aussie six-string luminary Mick Turner has sculpted majestic soundscapes through the lens of groundbreaking instrumental nomads, Dirty Three. In the group, Turner’s finger-stab pick and strum, melted with the piercing shriek of Warren Ellis’s violin, has broken hearts, but the guitarist also owns a bevy of intrepid records under his own name, and his latest epic, Don’t Tell The Driver Out, is described as the “first post-rock rock opera of our times.” Its immaculate arrangements bustle with horns and angelic singing, but Turner pilots the ship with intricate and hypnotic guitar lines steeped in twang, jazz, and Latin accents.
