GREG TURINI

Greg Turini, drummer, born in Switzerland, on June 16, 1984.

On March 13, 1993, I started playing drums, in free classes.

My career path began in 2001, when I entered the Music Academy of Lausanne (Conservatoire de Lausanne), in Switzerland, and where I got a Master as Drummer-Instrumentalist, in 2006.

In October 2008, I joined the Swiss symphonic metal band Elferya.

In 2010, I established my own music’s school. To this day the school has grown and it includes four experienced teachers : drums, guitar, bass and piano.

In 2012, I recorded the first album of the Elferya band called « The Straight and Narrow ». This album was introduced in Europe from 2010 to 2013, thanks to a 60 concerts’ tour.

In 2013, I launched Borderline, a colourful band, whose first album « WelKome » was quickly recorded.

In 2014, I fulfilled many dreams. I got the opportunity to play beside Epica, Eluveitie, Delain and Arkona. Furthermore, I had the privilege to play at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The same year, I recorded the second album of Elferya called « Eden’s Fall ».

In 2015, I went to Slovenia to play at the Metaldays festival with Elferya. The same year, Borderline did its first tour with the album «  WelKome » and I also played for the opening part of Wolfmother, Waltari…

I recorded the second album of Borderline « Theater » in 2016 and then I did a Swiss tour (20 concerts) with the band. On the walk back from this tour, I directly recorded the third album of Borderline, called « Across The Rainbow ».

In 2017, I started the world tour of « Across the Rainbow » that brought me to Japan : Osaka, Tokyo. To China : Beijing, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Hong Kong (HK). To USA : New York, Los Angeles, Niagara Falls, Louisville, Las Vegas, San Francisco. To UAE : Dubai, Bahrain, Abou Dabi. To Europe : Copenhaguen, Reykjavik, Prague, Dublin, Porto, St Petersburg, Innsbruck, Cologne. This tour ended in 2008, and straight after the tour I recorded the first album of the Chaoseum band « First Step to Hell ».

The year 2019 was artistically probably the most fruiting one. I signed with AGNER DRUMSTICKS for my drums sticks, that give me lots of satisfaction ! Then, I lined up many tours : a USA tour with Chaoseum for the opening part of Soulfly (Orlando, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Clifton, Boston and New York (Gramercy Theatre), a Russian tour with Tarja Turunen (Moscow, Kazan, Perm, UFA, Yekaterimbourg, Tioumen), and another US tour with Borderline. This tour brought Borderline to New Orleans, Indianola, Clarksdale, Memphis, Nashville, Chicago, oand we played on amazing stages as BBKing club, the House Of Blues, the Ground Zero Blues club.... During this tour I recorded the fourth album of Borderline at the Blackbird studio, in Nashville.

The beginning of 2020 is labelled by the signing with SJC Drums, Diril Cymbals, Vratim Shoes and Xvive’s endorsements. I will also participate at NAMM in Los Angeles, and I will have the opportunity to play at the Whisky a Go Go with Chaoseum.
