ORIGINAL • ACOUSTIC • AMERICANA
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. Meaningful lyrics, high-quality, well-rehearsed vocal harmonies, and Turner’s intricate playing on his warm, full-bodied acoustic set Boo Radley apart.
Their songs, speaking to modern-day and sometimes personal issues, resonate with audiences young and old. Having endured many hardships together, Michael and Patty can give validity to the emotions expressed through their music, which could explain why listeners relate so closely to their songs. Ranging from soft ballads to more hard-driving acoustic songs, their spirit has proven to thrive through Boo’s live performances.
