Turn Turn Turn is a trio who bonded over a mutual love of close harmony, 60's and 70's country, folk, and pop music to form an original Americana band. To create their distinctive sound, the band “turns” to the distant past of early American recorded music, “turns” again to that renaissance of the 1960's and 1970's, and finally “turns” again to the present looking forward. Their voices blend in a delectable, cosmic way, forming a sound that is both distinctive and familiar.
