Graham Turner ‘Pulling a Thread’ (2018, Single Review)

Despite not picking up the guitar until he was 39, writing his first song at 46 and self producing his first song in his 50’s Graham Turner has come a long way in a short space of time.With several tracks already played on a variety of radio stations, a song included in SKY TV’s Tin Pan Alley TV series, and voted in the Top 40 songs written by Nashville Songwriters Association members, Graham Turner now returns with his new single Pulling A Thread.- Rob Saunders (Deuce Music)

Singer-Songwriter Graham Turner who is based in London, England serves us honest songwriting in his latest single ‘Pulling a Thread’. With his deeply engaging vocals, each word spoken is softly externalised through emotional feeling and rhythm. Turner softly pairs instrumentation with his commanding vocals very neatly, as he laments:

“I need to take advice before I get to lose control. I am listening this time and I know the blame is mine because I am the one who digged the hole. You say that you want commitment girl but maybe I am a little shy…”

It is here that we begin to understand Turner’s own emotional state when it comes to songwriting and how vocal he is about his feelings in the most subtle way possible. He is a master of his own emotions yet he carries a distinct vulnerability when it comes to love. Whilst being relatable and ‘unfinished’ when it comes to love, Turner brings us a track that will certainly tug at your heartstrings and make you feel transcendent upon listening to his voice.

Rating: ****

‘Pulling a Thread’ is not only well collated but it is also deeply personal. It is a song that lets us experience Turner’s only plight with love as we are taken on a journey of broken hearts, forgiveness and self-proclamation. With his tender vocals and key eye for songwriting, ‘Pulling a Thread’ will make you press the repeat button more than once due to its emotional honesty and synth-like feel. Let Turner lead you on a journey of love as you begin to lose yourself in his voice, slowly drifting into a peaceful state of transcendence and reflection.
