Multi-platinum artist Will Turpin is about to give his fans an intimate and interactive concert performance where listeners can attend without having to leave the confines of their homes.
Turpin is the latest rocker to utilize Stageit, an online concert venue where performers can create a live broadcast while interacting with fans during the show. Best of all, everyone who buys a ticket will get a free mp3 of the song performances after the show.
The live show starts 9 p.m. EST and will be broadcast from the historic Real 2 Reel Studios in Jonesboro, Georgia. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at www.Stageit.com/WillTurpin.
“I’m looking forward to my first ‘live on the web’ performance,” states Turpin. “I’m always trying to embrace the options that technology brings, and Stageit has a style that makes the experience feel more like a live show.”
Turpin will perform the complete song list from The Lighthouse, his 2011 piano-driven power pop statement as well as a “few surprises.” The broadcast is a great opportunity to connect directly with his fans while showcasing his new band, Will Turpin and The Way. In addition to Turpin (keyboards and vocals) the quartet's lineup includes Jason Fowler (lead guitar and vocals), Mark Wilson (bass and vocals) and Scott Davidson (drums).
The band is currently putting the final touches on their first full-length CD, Serengeti Drivers, also recorded at Real 2 Reel Studios. Once Serengeti Drivers is released in spring 2013, Will Turpin and The Way will embark on a tour with dates to be announced later this year.
With his other band, Collective Soul, Turpin is a member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. Collective Soul has attained seven No. 1 songs and 19 Top 40 singles, making them one of the most successful bands of the 1990s.
