R&B, gospel, soul, and blues influences, and seasoned with dashes of humor and strife,
Turner created a musical gumbo which was released on his 75th birthday.

Kathy and the Kilowatts is led by Kathy Murray, who cut her teeth during the golden
era of Austin's blues and R&B scene in the 1980s and early 90s, sharing the stage
with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Fabulous Thunderbirds and blues godfather
W.C. Clark. Throughout her professional evolution, the blues has been the foundation
of Murray's music and songwriting, but she's never been just a one-trick pony.
"My sound encompasses the influences of all of Texas' rootsy regional music styles
that I've been exposed to throughout my life: blues, swamp pop, rock, zydeco, soul,
rockabilly and conjunto," she says. Murray's soulful, emphatic vocals have been
described as "the love child of Jimmy Reed and Wanda Jackson."
