AV Presents – An Evening with Emily Turner
August 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Emily Turner is a singer, song writer, and multi-instrumentalist based out of Applegate, Oregon. Spanning across genres from Americana, folk, indie, jazz, reggae and funk, her broad experience infuses a wide array of feels into her compositions. Her instrument of choice is upright bass, which she performs in different projects with, but she also performs solo using just her voice and both Baritone and Tenor ukulele.
Emily has performed in several Oregonian projects, including Free Creatures, Verbs & Nouns, The Alphadelics, Mad Woodsy, and Turner Moore Band. She also continually fosters other special collaborations across the Pacific Northwest, and internationally.
Emily was raised in Anchorage Alaska, and though she played cornet in band while in middle school, she did not pick up the upright bass until later in life, while living in Ashland, Oregon attending university for Environmental Studies. She is self taught in all regards- bass, ukulele, singing, looping, and song writing, though she continually pushes herself to new heights through enjoying collaboration and developing her performances.
