Turpentine Shine is a string band based in the Piedmont of NC with an outstanding blend of original songs ranging in style from Country and Bluegrass to the Singer-Songwriter appeal of artists like John Prine and Gordon Lightfoot. Throw into the mix a bit of jamgrass instrumental chops coupled with competent, earnest vocals and you will begin to have a grasp of what Turpentine Shine might sound like. The band’s live performance has evolved over the last few years having gone from a laid back duo of banjo/acoustic guitar with 3 minute songs to a roaring quartet of acoustic stringed instruments that now takes songs into open jam spaces that leave the listener wondering just what is going to happen next. Having just released their first EP of original material entitled “Bloom” in February 2018, Turpentine Shine is poised to continue growing their audience and their sound as they work their way into 2019 and beyond.
