World Soul Music is what Chris Turner uses as his remedy throughout this journey of life and love. So he presents to you his new project "LOVElife" to add to your collection of remedies that helps you continue to live life in all of its beauty. As a young man, Turner has experienced many worlds through this thing called life performing with musicians/friends such as Jesse Boykins III, ERIMAJ, Bilal, and Esperanza Spalding, as well as being father of two. "I'm blessed to know the feeling of fatherhood and to have a family of my own" says Turner, "It has taken all this time for me to gain the confidence to express what I have been living through this whole time." This project is every aspect and extent of his love; the evolution of emotions expressed from a good man with music as his vessel. The importance of Loving Yourself first and foremost before you can give True Love to a significant other, as well as the world, is key, and is a lesson that Turner has embodied in life directly and musically.

"I am merely a middle man trying to bring you and true love together. LOVElife is my melodic contribution that highlights the significance of loving yourself, sharing growth, and learning to forgive. Releasing this body of work on this day is my gift to you, for I was born on this day, and life is a precious gift to me." says Turner. LOVElife is a necessary part of an important search to find romance, of which there is no end. Happy Holidays to life and love, and all individuals finding their way, from Myself and The Romantic Movement. LOVEchild LP Coming Soon (@ChrisTurnerLC)

In April 2011, he was selected by BET to perform on 106 and Park as an “Artist To Watch” for BET's Music Matters campaign.

This classically trained crooner deftly combines streams of jazz, hip-hop, funk, and soul in his music; he’s as comfortable with falsetto and scatting as he is with laying down smooth and creative phrasings. Growing up in Oakland, Chris Turner knew at the age of four that he wanted to be a singer just like his father. Chris recently graduated from the New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music. There he met his future band mates who form the band ERIMAJ, Chris serves as the lead vocalist, the New York Times describes the band as, “ properly new, part of something larger and still unnamed”. He tours with Bilal Oliver and has toured with Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown, Bow Wow, Soulja Boy, and Sean Kingston. Chris recently was interviewed and performed live on BET’s “106 & Park” as the latest Music Matters artist to watch. His first single, “Liquid Love,” has been causing a stir on the Internet and radio programs such as BBC Radio with Gilles Peterson. Chris had the privilege in helping Esperanza Spalding finish her latest Album with background vocals. He is currently working on his first full-length release, “LOVEchild” and touring internationally. Welcome to the Romantic Movement..
