40 years after losing him, Benny's newest CD pays tribute to his big brother and best friend, Freddie King.
"Album-length tributes to blues greats of decades past are nothing new, but this collection is truly special. It's one legendary brother paying tribute to another, who just happens to be one of the greatest bluesmen of all time." - Bill Dahl

Benny is proud to present his 3rd CD, Journey. It contains all original music, including family treasures passed down to him as a boy (“My Mother’s Blues” honoring Ella Mae (King) Turner, and “My Uncle’s Blues (Fannie Mae)” honoring his uncle Leon King). Pulling from a lifetime of doo-wop, R&B, gospel, soul, and blues influences, and seasoned with dashes of humor and strife, Turner has created a musical gumbo with something sure to satisfy everyone who listens. "Breakin' News" was a blues song finalist in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition.
