The Turnbull AC's

Artist / Band / Musician
Alternative / Rock / Indie
Recognized as one of Cincinnati's premiere singer/songwriters, Dan Mecher started his Turnbull AC's as a creative outlet following the death of his grandparents. He began crafting his songs during a six-month solitude living in their double-wide trailer on the west side of Cincinnati. The songs are haunting stories brought to life by Mecher's graceful and melodic compositions—eerie reminders of the misfortunes life can present.

After months of playing solo acoustic sets, Mecher gathered some of Cincinnati's finest musicians to help him convey his message. The band dove right into the local and regional music scene during the second half of 2005, and played out several times a week with local favorites such as the Heartless Bastards, 500 Miles to Memphis, Moth, and The Sundresses. At the end of the year The Turnbull AC's were recognized by Cincinnati’s CityBeat Entertainment Awards—receiving a nomination for "Best New Artist of the Year”. Mecher also received a nomination for "Singer/Songwriter of the Year" Award.

As 2006 rolled in, The Turnbull AC's saw the impact of their first year in existence. The band took advantage of their growing local popularity and self-released their debut full-length album. As people filled their shows, press reviews gave nothing but positive feedback, and the regional airwaves began spreading the word of Mecher's lyrical masterpieces. The band’s hard work during 2006 earned them CEA nominations for "Artist of the Year", "Best Rock Album", "Album of the Year", and once again Mecher was nominated for "Singer/Songwriter of the Year".

The Turnbull AC's are currently touring the Midwest, promoting their debut album and receiving airplay from a growing number of radio stations across the country. The band recently finished recording their sophomore full-length album and their goal is to find a label that will help distribute their music. The Turnbull AC’s are committed to touring regionally and nationally—spreading the word of their great city’s music scene in an effort to make Cincinnati a permanent spot on the music map.
