Say Goodbye to 2013 and These Three Concept Albums


As 2013 comes to an end, I’m taking down some old albums. As of January 1st 2014,
Past Concept Albums 2002​-​2006, New American Songbook, and Taking Requests will no longer be available for download. The good news is that some of the tracks from these albums will be available completely remastered and sounding better than before.

The songs will appear on my next album simply titled “25th Album.” This compilation will include 25 tracks of live cuts, unreleased songs, and demos. There might even be a brand new tune if I can get around to finishing it.

While I don’t intend to have much fanfare for the release of this record, it will mark the end of an era similar to the way that Past Concept Albums 2002​-​2006 did. Stay tuned.


About Monk Turner
"This prolific/eclectic artist/producer uses a spectrum of styles, generating entire concept albums. Turner is both daring and melodically gifted..." -Music Connection Magazine "You've got to love Monk Turner for creativity and witty lyrics. He combines various music genres and creates tracks suited for any type of music listener." -FrostClick Over the past decade, Monk Turner has produced more than 20 concept albums, using a freeform collective of musicians who share his passion for creating unique, genre-defying music. His songs have been featured in movies, television programs and advertisements, and his reach continues to widen. “Seeking” from the 2008 release, Love Story currently has had more than 500,000 plays on the online radio station, Pandora. Music from Emergency Songs was featured in an international video that was created in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake in Japan. But, his most ambitious project to date has been the production of his 2012 album, Kaleidoscope, where he collaborated with more than 40 national and international artists to create an album of music and poetry based on the concept of color. Turner offers free download capabilities via the unconventional distribution platform offered by Creative Commons licenses so that the public is able to enjoy and share his music.
