Joe Lynn Turner
Joe Lynn Turner
American vocalist and guitarist. Born on August 2nd, 1951 in Hackensack, New Jersey, United States.
Symbolic
Symbolic
As a heavy-hitting dynamic force hailing from the power/prog metal midst of the San Diego, California music scene, Symbolic combines their melodic energy and excitement for what will be their fifth CD later this year.

Since the first three years of their conception, increasingly impressive efforts helped build a strong following locally and internationally. Opening for well-known national acts such as Adrenaline Mob, Fates Warning, UFO, Brian Wheat (of Tesla fame), PHILM with Dave Lombardo, guitar legend Michael Schenker, Doro Pesch and others, it was no surprise that Symbolic found themselves in very close company of great music notables.

Their epic sophomoric release "Nevertime" garnered them a 2011 SDMA nomination for "Best Hard Rock Album of the Year". Radio interest locally and as far away as Chicago (Gregg Kovach), offered the band enormous praise. Billy Sherwood (of Yes and Circa fame) commented upon learning of the band and hearing cuts from their third effort "Disconnected": "Cool stuff indeed…I really dig the band".

With the 2012 release of "Xenatopia", notable music critic and journalist Martin Popoff writes, "Symbolic have demonstrated a sterling silver craftsmanship in the forging of locked down metal with both brains and brawn". A heavier and even more progressive than anything they've done to date under the guidance of producer/engineer Daniel Castleman, “Xenatopia” had corralled the power/prog metal faithful throughout 2013 and 2014. Radio/internet interviews and San Diego radio airplay sealed Symbolic’s position as musically solid and here to stay.

With Scott Bruce (vocals), Steve Potts (guitar), Bobby Fernandez (bass), and Steven Elias (drums), Symbolic’s future is of one of the staunch core foundations of the San Diego music scene.
RDG
RDG
RDG (Raymond DiGiorgio Group) features the instrumental rock/funk/groove material of Los Angeles Music Awards "Guitarist of the Year" nominee, Raymond DiGiorgio. RDG's release "The Vault" was a Los Angeles Music Awards winner for "Instrumental Album of the Year" and was nominated at the San Diego Music Awards for "Best Rock Album". Featuring Brian Murray on drums, bassist Deron Ireland, and Brian Dickson on keyboards, RDG's lineup is tour'd force live. Having opened for such nationally touring acts as Blue Oyster Cult, Gary Hoey, Steve Vai, Tony MacAlpine, George Lynch, Lynchmob, Nuno Bettencourt, Stu Hamm, Jefferson Starship, The Winery Dogs, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Yngwie Malmsteen, Ted Nugent, Ace Freley, Tal Wilkenfeld, Lita Food, and King's X, RDG has been consistently heating up the Southern California music scene for over a decade. A must see live experience, be sure to catch RDG live in 2018!
