acoustic music duo
Peter Cooper, Music Editor of the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN, has this to say about Boo Radley’s original music: “’Boo Radley’ is something special. I really enjoy this music and want to hear much more. It’s really, really good.”
Boo Radley’s original songs highlight the songwriting skills, sophisticated harmonies and guitar work, and true passions of the acoustic duo, comprised of Michael Shawn Turner and Patricia Matson-Turner. The two have been in the music business for decades. At the close of the ‘90’s, Michael achieved stardom in Manila, Philippines, in a band called Battery. Gracing a desk in Michael and Patty’s living room is a Nu107 Rock Award 2000 that Michael received as “Guitarist of the Year, Michael Turner of Battery.” For many years, Patty performed in the Mid-Atlantic Region as the lead singer of various rock and variety cover bands.
The two met in Tallahassee, Florida, and became fast friends. Michael asked Patty to help write a song he had been commissioned to write, and in one afternoon they came up with what is now the title track of their first commercial EP, “More than Meets the Eye”… (not for a minute did either of them foresee even performing the song, much less making it the title track of a Nashville-recorded EP!)
The recording took place in December 2016 at the iconic Treasure Isle Recorders, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee. Owned by Fred Vail, legendary manager of The Beach Boys, Tre
