For those who know John Turk and his love for music, they know he is a man of few words and he chooses them carefully. Just like his communication style, his music is easily recognizable. Rich, soulful and full of history and you can never get enough of his tasty robust sound.

John grew up in a musical household and has deep roots in the church, Although they called him a musical prodigy, he was just a kid with a curiosity and passion about music with the ability to play the piano and the trumpet at the same time. So why? He said he wanted a more percussive sound and there was no one there to accompany him, so he did it himself.

JT continues to push the envelope musically. From his early days in Vallejo playing with schoolmate Sly Stone's band to recording or performing with legends such as Etta James, Jimmy McCracklin, John Lee Hooker, Charlie Musselwhite, PeeWee Ellis, Mark Isham, BB King, and more. John has been inducted into the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame and has been written up in b3 organ publications for his accomplishments. As fate would have it, John found his way to Glide Memorial Church and Reverend Cecil Williams. What started out as a temporary gig, turned into a 30 year musical ministry as the director of music leading the change band and world renowned 80 voice Glide Ensemble. Whether directing the national anthem at a major athletic event or performing for the president, John continues to rock the house with his original compositions as well as unique arrangements of well known tunes guaranteed to make even the most modest of individuals jump up and dance.

Growing up, John had the good fortune to learn the barrel house boogie from his older cousin. In the same fashion, he believes in inspiring young people to explore music using it as a form of self expression, possible path to a career in music. John leads the Gospel Choral program every other year for the ROCK program at Sir Francis Drake High School in Marin County. In addition, he teaches piano to promising artists on a very limited basis and encourages the young people at glide to try music on for size. You just might be the next Stevie Wonder, who knows? His son Miles Turk is certainly giving it his all as his most devout student on drums, piano & trumpet. You'll be hearing from him very soon.

John's latest project" Homegrown" is a very tasty b3 Hammond organ gem (released Sept. 2014). A long awaited b3 organ music project that highlights originals mixed in with well known classics all infused with that signature John Turk b3 organ swing thang. Blues, Funk, R&B, Gospel & Jazz, this project has it all. Just like a great book, it's a page turner and you won't want to miss a beat.

The crew on the CD boasts a 'who's who' list of well known artists such as Carl Lockett (Guitar), Ron E. Beck (Drums), James Levi (Percussion), Greg Crockett (Guitar/Bass) Keith Hatchell (Bass), Tim Landis (Guitar), Lorn Leber (Guitar), Cheryl Serame (Vocals) and Charles McNeil (Tenor Saxophone). All represented by well know groups such as Tower of Power, Jimmy Smith, Chuck Mangione, Herbie Hancock, Natalie Cole, The Greatful Dead, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Narada Michael Walden and more.. Bring your dancing shoes, the CD does not disappoint.

If you get an opportunity to hear the legendary John Turk live or on CD, just know you are in for a real treat.
