Henry Turner Jr. is a name that you’ll already know if you live down in the USA, Louisiana way. A musician and entrepeneur, Henry Turner Jr. has made great steps to improve his community and give where he can. He’s even been awarded an honourary Louisiana ambassadorship in recognition of his efforts! Around his neck of the woods, he’s a living legend.
Music Dreams – an American story is a documentary film profiling that very same legend. It explores the beginnings of Turner’s musical journey with his upbringing in the Baton Rouge neighborhood Eden Park. Over the past 40 years, he has developed a syncopated style of music that is referred to as Louisiana blues, soul, funk and reggae.
Sampling that playlist should give you an idea as to his musical prowess. If you wanted to find out more about him, or perhaps engage with a legend that already lives strongly in your heart, the documentary is the place to be!
If you wanted to check it out, Vimeo is the quickest place, so grab your popcorn and settle in. Or if you’re a collector and have a heart as gold as Henry’s, purchasing and owning the film via Pivotshare will help ensure his musical legend can endure!
As a show business veteran and entrepreneur, Turner Jr.’s vision is and always will be to share the love he has for his home state of Louisiana, his hometown of Baton Rouge and to introduce the cultural diversity of his world into the world in general. Absolutely admirable- this is a goal that will bring happiness to many. And indeed it has, to the point that an entire day is dedicated to him and his work annually, sharing the culture and music of Louisiana. And of course, the man himself is deeply involved with its organisation. It’s also a festival that’s free to the public! It’s a rotten thing that COVID most likely will cause its cancellation. It would be the fourth anniversary this year. But it’s better to live to sing another day, we’re sure Henry will agree. The same could be said of his amazing listening room.
Yep, it’s a sure thing that if you want some chill amazing music the likes of which can only be produced by Mr. Turner Jr himself, there’s only one place to go, his listening room… but for those of you stuck at home in the pandemic, we’ll close out with a special video that gives you a taste of the magic. And until restrictions lessen and a vaccine is found, there’s only one video that can truly capture who Henry is: MUSIC DREAMS – AN AMERICAN STORY – HENRY TURNER JR.
