NEW VIDEOS: Turtle Island Quartet

We’re excited to release two brand new videos with the Turtle Island Quartet, recorded here in our studios!

“Crossover” is a term that is thrown around a lot with genre-mixing music. TIQ violinist David Balakrishnan explained their take on “crossover” in a recent Seattle Times article.  It’s brilliant:

“Crossover is often associated with classical musicians trying to do something they don’t know how to do.  In our case, we were formed for the express purpose of doing what we’ve wanted to do since childhood: play improvised music and jazz using our classical training as string players. What we’ve ended up doing isn’t crossover, because how can you cross over when you’re already there?

Our request?  Keep on keepin’ on!
