Rebecca Turner on Woman-Stirred Radio!! August 26th

This Thursday, August 26th, at 5:00 (eastern) on Woman-Stirred Radio, Rebecca Turner is live in the studio.

Turners CD, Slowpokes, has received solid reviews and the attentions of many reviewers, including Jersey Beat's, The World According to Wawrzyniak. Turner is, after all, living in New Jersey, describing her music as "Americana... Nashville by way of Newark, NJ."

Listen here to some of the tracks on Slowpokes:

Turner describes Slowpokes as her "usual casserole of  styles...kind of Americana, kind of rock, kind of folk. I grew up in  L.A. and soaked up the whole California rock thing, pretty much  memorizing every Linda Ronstadt song. Right before I moved east, there  was the whole Bangles/Plimsouls thing; I wrote a poem for the school  paper about how Peter Case sweat on me from the stage. In college in NYC  I sang with an a cappella trio...everything from settings of Edna St.  Vincent Millay poems, to raucous gospel tunes. Somehow it all came to a  head in the late '90s, when I was listening to a lot of Jane Siberry and  Liz Phair, and indulging my country music fanaticism, with Nanci  Griffith on one end of the spectrum and Trisha Yearwood on the other..." (Turner).

So please tune in this Thursday, August 26th at 5pm for some live music and conversation with Rebecca Turner. If you want to call in dial: 802.454.7762 and let us know you're listening and liking what you hear (or not).
