A joint Australia/USA musical collaboration featuring renowned blues-artist Dom Turner (Backsliders)

The Turner Brown Band, a joint Australia/USA musical collaboration between Australian slide guitarist and music producer Dom Turner (of awarded blues act ‘Backsliders’ fame) and Ohio based ‘Sacred Steel’ vocalist and lap-slide guitar sensation Nikki D Brown, return to Australia following the success of the May 2017 tour.
Nikki was born into a Church-based slide guitar tradition known as ‘Sacred Steel’ and has been described by Guitar World magazine as the “Jimi Hendrix of Sacred Steel”. Renowned blues-artist Dom Turner has spent more than 30 years touring the festival circuit with Backsliders as well as various musical collaborations including Phil Wiggins & Dom Turner and Supro. Joining Dom and Nikki are her sisters Gloria Brown (rhythm guitar and vocals) and cousin Tomika Webb (drums and vocals) who share the same deep musical heritage and love of infectious gospel-soul music. Australian bass player, Ben Edwards (Ray Beadle band, Dust Radio) completes the five-piece band.
