Kingdom Jasmine
Kingdom Jasmine
Kingdom Jasmine performs in support of its eponymous debut album independently released in June 2016. Featuring YouTube star Josh Turner's prodigious guitar work and songwriter Bob Barrick's idiosyncratic lyricism, Kingdom Jasmine displays a profound appreciation for the American musical tradition.
Raised in Charlotte, NC, Turner's talent developed via his appreciation for American primitive guitarists John Fahey and Leo Kottke. His work with The Other Favorites (Carson McKee & Josh Turner) as well as his solo work garnered him a vast and loyal YouTube fanbase at a relatively young age. In 2014, his cover of Paul Simon's "Graceland" received over 500,000 views and landed him a spot performing on ABC's Good Morning America. Today, his YouTube channel boasts 67,000 subscribers.

Turner and Barrick met at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN in 2011. Together, the two formed Coyote Armada, a six-piece, folk-rock group. The group released four albums over a four year period and toured the Midwest before eventually splitting in 2015. Shorly after the group's split, the two remaining members went into the studio with the intention of finishing what was originally to be the next Coyote Armada album. Employing the help of the local musical community, Turner and Barrick wrote, arranged, and recorded the album Kingdom Jasmine. Kingdom Jasmine exhibited the duo's vast range of ability in the studio, including an array of instrumentation from dulcimer to pipe organ.

Taking their name from a track on that album - one that depicts an imaginary band called Kingdom Jasmine and invites listeners to "fill your wine glass and drink out beneath the stars and the moonlight" - the real Kingdom Jasmine now resides in Brooklyn, NY and performs all over New York City.
