Concept album creator Monk Turner releases his 26th album “God Complex”. The album features songs delivered from the viewpoint of 12 of the major gods from Greek mythology.

His music has received national and international attention. In 2013, WFMU and the Free Music Archive held a competition to create a copyright-free version of the “Happy Birthday to You”. Turner’s composition with musician Fascinoma “It’s Your Birthday!” won the contest and has now over half a million downloads.

For God Complex, Turner enlisted a cadre of vocalists who presented themselves as Greek gods singing contemporary, autobiographical tunes. The album was written and recorded over the course of a year, and documented via his YouTube channel.

Each video gives background information on the god, then dives into the creation process that includes preliminary demo feedback.

A versatile greek concept album.
