Check out what the Cleveland Scene said about our new album!

“Turning Force is churning out heartfelt ballads that lack neither complexity nor intensity — they even get political a little later on with “Mother America.” The album’s early missteps aside, Speak 4 Yourself is inevitably a tour de force of red-blooded, inspiration rock, and a testament to the DIY ethic and what can be accomplished when two talented musicians morph late-night jam sessions into one complete work.”

What music should you listen to while working?

Looks like if you a construction worker, athlete, bartender, driver, programmer, or high school teacher you should listen to rock (regular, classic, or indie) music.

We suggest giving “Our Tomorrow” a listen. Check it out at: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/turningforce1

Cleveland, Cincy Based Indie Rockers Turning Force Unleash Haunting Romp in New CD Release

Speak 4 Yourself Lays Out 13 Melodic, Lyrical and Bluesy Rockers

 

Cincinnati, OH – July 17, 2013 – Cleveland based rock band Turning Force today officially releases its new 13 song CD “Speak 4 Yourself.” The bluesy, and hauntingly melodic album features “several potential singles,” according to the band’s management, and the band hopes not only for significant national airplay on rock stations, but will also pursue use of songs in both movie and television soundtracks.

 

Turning Force is comprised of lead vocalist/bassist Roddy Roeser and vocalist/guitarist Mark Savina. The pair also performed drums and percussion and co-wrote each of the songs. It was produced by Grant Kattman at Red Echo Post studios in Cincinnati.

 

The CD can be sampled, downloaded and purchased on most major online sites, such as Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, ReverbNation and CDBaby. The band is also casting, storyboarding and directing a video shoot for the band’s first major single release, “Moon Shine.”

 

For additional information, the band can be reached on Facebook at keyword Turning Force, and are available online at www.turningforce.wordpress.com. They are represented by entertainment PR firm The Eisen Agency in Cincinnati.

ImageCurious what instruments and equipment Rodger and Mark play? We are so glad you asked! Let’s talk music!

Rodger plays a Fender Precision bass. Mark plays a Barrington, an Ovation acoustic, and a G&L guitar. Both use Blue Steel guitar strings. Blue Steel strings are frozen with liquid nitrogen to create superior tone and long life!

Both band members use Tama drums and sample and Shure microphones.

How does all this magic come together? They use ProTools for production.
