Made of grit, sweat and soulful prowess, Turnspit were born out of a moment of bliss during a Samiam set at Riot Fest in 2014 when they were “feeling the itch” to ditch the solo gigs and form a band.
Since 2014, Turnspit have been leaning into the music scene non-stop with recording singles and EPs at Atlas Studios to playing frequent shows in the city. Having shared a stage with bands like The Lawrence Arms, Worriers, Dowsing, Meridian, RVIVR, Worship This!, and Alkaline Trio since then, the group felt their biggest moment of joy when they played the Heather Owen Stage during Riot Fest 2017. Not only does the group give back to the scene they love, they’re socially conscious with their performances and donate proceeds from some shows to organizations like RAINN, Girl Forward and spread the message of inclusivity.
Weaving influences into their midwestern skate punk tracks with poetic sensibility, Turnspit are in the wheelhouse of their favorite bands: The Gaslight Anthem, The Menzingers, Rise Against, Lucero, Hot Water Music and Against Me! Taking some pointers to heart, McGhee said Chuck Ragan’s Covering Ground influenced her iconic “growl.”
“I wanted to be able to produce that sound with my voice and put my own spin on it,” McGhee said. “I’ve worked on my vocal delivery for years and am very proud of my ability to go from soft and pretty to harsh and gritty.”
Their debut record, Desire Paths, will be released in 2018 via Dodgeball Records.
