Today on our Hot Seat we have multi-talented Dexx! Turner with us. Let’s have a chat with us.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Dexx! Turner : What up family my name is Dexx! Turner. I’m an artist, engineer, producer, etc…from Montgomery, AL bringing you a little bit of joy, pain, sunshine and rain to your ears.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Dexx! Turner : I remember looking at Michael Jackson performances and watching the people go crazy in the moment, fainting to the point paramedics had to come get them, the adrenaline Michael had on stage performing, dancing, singing and I was amazed. I wanted that feeling every since then.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent project ?
Dexx! Turner : It’s called “To the Moon and Black. I was always fascinated with astrology. I always wanted to see what was beyond Earth when I was young so I just fused it with “black” being I’m African American. The project is to get you to hear what I’m feeling and going through from the walls of my home, when I leave out into the world, exploring it and when I get back from it.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Dexx! Turner : Incredible. Everyone seems to have their favorites and for the most part it’s never the same track so I think I kind of made a little something for everybody to enjoy.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Dexx! Turner : Definitely performing. Working in the studio is cool because of the creativity and the challenge sometimes, but the performance is when you get to go live and feel the energy and emotions from the crowd. That family feeling you get when they’re cheering or saying your words with you is unforgettable.
Twist Online : Do you need some certain kind of environment for songwriting?
Dexx! Turner : With writing I definitely need peace and serenity. I can’t focus too much in a noisy or busy scene.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Dexx! Turner : Of course, the awards and accolades are a great thing to have in your career, I wouldn’t mind those, but I want to tour around the world more than anything and meet different walks of life and learn a lot of new things.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Dexx! Turner : I’m always working, but I’m going to spread this one for a little while and possibly get back later this year for another one. I kind of got the name for a new one already, but it’s just in the beginning stage.
Twist Online : Are you active on social media? What’s the best way to follow you online?
Dexx! Turner : Yes, very active. Follow me on…
