Following a busy period of touring the classic works of Wishbone Ash, founding original member Martin Turner releases “Written in the Stars” an album of new material written and recorded with his touring musicians and other collaborators.
As lead vocalist, bassist and songwriter on classic album releases such as “Argus”, “Pilgrimage”, “Wishbone Four”, “There’s the Rub” and “New England”, Martin Turner was key to Wishbone Ash’s international success as one of rock music’s most loved touring and recording bands.
“Written in the Stars” remains true to the Wishbone Ash blueprint and can be considered an extension of the creativity that became the soundtrack to many people’s lives. The songs contain the band’s renowned melodic qualities, resplendent with trademark twin-lead guitars and vocal harmonies aplenty. The key creative force of Wishbone Ash’s best loved works delivers a high quality set of original material that sits comfortably amongst the best of the band’s classic catalogue.
“Working with my band on a creative level has been a very rewarding experience,” says Martin Turner. “Everyone contributed well, stimulating and inspiring each other and we’re all very pleased with the level of creativity and the end result.”
“Written in the Stars” is available from 4th September 2015 via Cherry Red and will be supported with worldwide touring. Martin Turner’s current touring band features Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic (guitars) and Tim Brown (drums).
