TURNKEY GROUP

Los Angeles

Turnkey Group a "Project", production company based on exploring, developing and guiding vocalists to reach their fullest potential as an ARTIST in the recording and live entertainment industry.

Original material, 32 TRACK studio, vocal instruction, marketing, industry contacts and inspiration with gentle encouragement are the tools that we implement.

No contract (it depends), no promises (if it helps) just a lot of SWEAT (trust us, it works).

Experience has shown us "Turnkey" cannot  build the Artist's perceived dream alone...the "Reality" can only be really, achieved by YOU!
