The Band

Turpentine Shine is a string band based in the Piedmont of NC with an inspiring collection of thoughtful 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 some jammy bluegrass instrumental chops coupled with competent, earnest vocals and you will begin to have a grasp of what Turpentine Shine sounds like. The band's live performance is ever evolving, having gone from a laid back duo of banjo and acoustic guitar with 3 minute songs to a roaring quintet 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 released their first EP of original material entitled "Bloom" in February 2018, Turpentine Shine is planning to release their follow up record “It’s All Small Change” in the Fall of 2019.
