Lockdown was a small collection of songs I managed to put together during that insanely odd and exceptional time we all lived through in 2020. I started out with the intent of a full ten song collection, but it never really happened. I quite like the […]
Inside the Outside was started in Summer 2017, but dragged on for few years.  Call it ‘musicians block’ but life did take a few more curve balls, and actually, i was out enjoying it a lot more. In Spring 2020, I decided with ‘Lockdown’ to end […]
Haunted was the longest I have taken to complete a set of songs to date – lots of changes and other interesting things going on in life, let this take more time and be more relaxed.  Some cool tracks on here, and some others not so […]
This collection of songs started into 2015, following a 6 month hiatus, and took over 12 months to complete, which is unusually long (considering I usually do two sets of 10 a year).  “Take What You Need” was created during a fairly miserable point during huge change […]
“Night and Day” is a new collection of songs started in December 2014.  Though I am just starting out, I am keen to do something harder and a bit rockier than some of the melancholic sounds of the past few songs – more upbeat and maybe […]
  Song number 5 on One Unusual Suspect.   Nothing particularly complex about this one. [audio:http://www.morks.net/music/One%20Unusual%20Suspect/05%20Longing%20But%20Knowing.mp3|artists=Mark J Turner|titles=Longing But Knowing]   Enjoy.  
“The Third Floor” will be my eleventh album, making it 90 original songs and 10 cover’s over 4 years – which is quite some output. Whilst I’m quite proud of some of my work, I want to try and evolve my sound with the eleventh album, […]
Tears to Distraction was the first collection produced entirely in Logic Pro, moving from Garageband which I’d used for all my previous recording work.  I’d actually had Logic setup for a year or so previously, but quite frankly, had never really got to grips with it […]
Pressure (2010) seemed to take an age to complete- but in the end I was quite pleased with it – particularly “Surface Detail” and “Elusive” which have quite a complex sound to them.  Meanwhilst, “Song of Susannah” was quite a departure for me, with almost a […]
Tortured Soul was the name of a band I was in as a schoolboy, that never really took off, but for which, I had great ambitions 🙂 This is still I believe, one of my most accomplished works – the song writing seemed to come so […]
Distant Journey was completed 14th February 2010.  The intention of this collection is a progressive rock/metal extravaganza, with absolutely no compromise.  The first song, produced in late 2009, is a real synth and guitar lead overload track – complex, intricate, fusion, jazz, metal, thrash, rock and […]
Edge Of the World was completed in 2008 – My favourite track on this collection is “My Naked God” which is a fast moving rock track, with a nice harmony.  The overall sound is fairly similar to “Many Ways To Be” so far, the only significant difference […]
Inversions began in early 2008, and was completed quickly.   I really started to branch out trying a variety of different styles – with a particular focus on Progressive Rock styles such as those of “Dream Theater”, one of my favourite bands.  Inversions worked out really […]
