Smoove & Turrell


The pair fuse funk, soul, R&B, jazz and hip hop with elements of electro.

Jonathan Scott Watson and John Turrell fuse funk, soul, R&B, jazz and hip hop with elements of electro.

And Smoove & Turrell's rise through the ranks of British soul has been nothing but unstoppable! Welcome back after an amazing show last year to a world-renowned Newcastle act, born from that heartland of heavy industry and birthing "Northern Funk" with a phenomenal lead singer in John Turrell, compared to the likes of Paul Wellar, Cee Lo Green, Joe Cocker and Michael McDonald. The band is pretty damn hot as well... Dedication to live performance builds a really solid foundation. Playing Glastonbury and Bestival (amongst others) and supports with Chic (Nile Rodgers) and Charles Bradley has gathered the band a huge and dedicated fan base that only hard work delivers. National playlisting and heavy Radio2 / 6Music rotation from first two albums (Antique Soul & Eccentric Audio) with I Can't Give You Up, Beggarman, You Don't Know, Gabriel and Hard Work; and Slow Down entered international playlists on TV and radio throughout Europe. Highly-acclaimed third album Broken Toys once again showed there was no slowing down as singles Will You Be Mine and Play to Win gained international playlist selection throughout Europe and beyond. And with word spreading to America, major players ABC and Fox Network both used Smoove & Turrell tracks on huge prime time advertising campaigns for shows such as 'Pan Am' and 'Lucky Ladies'. Other one-off spots on international smash hit TV series 'The Finder', 'World of Jenks' and 'Ray Donovan' followed. We concur; this show is bound to be busy again, early purchase recommended!
