Editorial Reviews

In late 2005, Dale Turner started chipping away at the ultimate musicianship challenge: Write an entire record of super eclectic (non-mainstream, though surprisingly accessible) ROCK music that *he* (see BIO) wanted to hear, AND produce, perform all the instruments, arrange, and engineer himself (including the disc's artwork). The record that resulted, MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED (finally released June 1, 2010 on the INTIMATE AUDIO label), sits somewhere between the singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist tradition of Jon Brion, Elliott Smith, Joseph Arthur, and Sufjan Stevens, with added flavor from Dale's King's X, Mr. Bungle, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Brian Wilson/Beach Boys, and Bobby McFerrin influences. Moody, acoustic art-rock with ample room for interpretation:

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE says: 'Smart pop tunes that are crammed with interesting guitar parts and tones ... Like what the Beach Boys might do if they were on an acid trip that was on the verge of getting out of control. Yeah!'
MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE says: 'Clever in concept and sophisticated in execution. Turner's an accomplished guitarist ... working at a high level. It seems there's nothing he cannot do in the studio.'
INDIE MUSIC DIGEST calls it: 'Musical brilliance. Highly original, creative, extremely melodic, and unpredictable as hell.'
MUSIC WEB EXPRESS calls Dale: 'A multi-talented yet quite eclectic composer/guitarist who never fails to take a hard left turn ... Mannerisms Magnified takes rock music in a daring new direction ... You'd never guess it was all one person doing it all.'
GUITARINSTRUCTOR.COM calls Dale: 'An ace guitarist with a vast stylistic palette.'

Beyond Turner's ace axework (acoustic and electric guitar influences that include the aforementioned Buckley and Smith, along with Steve Morse, Tommy Emmanuel, John Frusciante, Ani DiFranco, Ty Tabor, Andrew York, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck--many of whom Turner has had the privilege of conducting interviews/private lessons with at his former 'job'), MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED is heavily propelled by Turner's wide-ranging vocal approaches (from eerie whispers, dreamy falsetto, and stunningly-intricate harmonies, to full-throttle rock wails, cartoon-like voices, and throat singing effects). Factor in the multi-instrumentalist's subtly unorthodox drumming (influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, Steve Smith, and Stewart Copeland), linear-yet-supportive bass playing (influenced by Flea, Jaco Pastorius, and Carol Kaye), piano, mandolin, and accordion touches on select cuts--and the fact that virtually any other 'instrument' heard is actually a vocal sound (think: Mike Patton meets Bobby McFerrin meets Raul Midon)--and you get a hint of the unpredictable, yet highly-musical listening experience this 42-minute sonic journey offers.

MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED was initially mixed on a Power Mac G4 by Dale Turner, then remixed (from stems) through vintage/modern analog gear by sonic wizard Robert Wawoe. Mastered by Oasis Mastering's Eddy Schreyer (Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Take 6, Korn, Queen).

CD/DigiPak includes original art/illustrations and complete lyrics booklet.

The former West Coast Editor (1996-2007) of the now defunct Guitar One magazine, in addition to working as a performing/recording musician and producing engineer, Dale Turner is an instructor at Hollywood's Musician's Institute, author of 50+ instructional books/transcription folios, and writes a monthly acoustic guitar column for Guitar World magazine.
