The fresh musical movement known as Blue Turtle Seduction is a two-fold sonic experience. Both musically and socially aware, the five-piece rock / bluegrass / reggae / hip-hop hybrid creates music that defies classification. Embodying the essence of South Lake Tahoe, CA, Blue Turtle Seduction captures the upbeat, party vibe and jovial ambiance of their hometown. On the strength of their latest release, 13 Floors, BTS is proving themselves to be a mainstay on the musical circuit for years to come.

Featuring Jay Seals (guitar, vocals), Glenn Stewart (harmonica, pan flute, vocals), Christian Zupancic (violin, mandolin, vocals), Stephen Seals (bass), and Adam Navone (drums), the quintet crossed paths while working at a conference resort in the Tahoe Desolation Wilderness Area. The five distinctly unique individuals comprise the Blue Turtle Seduction sound, integrating their worldly flair with their love of all things music. From classical to rock, their refined and dynamic sound has been capturing audiences on a nightly basis.

13 Floors is loaded with trademark Blue Turtle Seduction. Capturing the diversity of the band in fluid stages, the latest release showcases music with purpose. The lyrics and melodies are infused with revelry and the harmonies encourage whole-hearted sing-a-longs. Melodic guitar leads complement the layers of strings and woodwind textures. The rhythm section is groovy and as tight as a snare drum, inevitably leading to a full-fledged dance party. "With each track, the elevator shifts to the side, up, or down, into a slightly different style. But it's all woven together within the Blue Turtle Seduction building; unmistakably us, and an authentic representation of our California blend," says Zupancic. Blue Turtle Seduction's musicianship is second to none and shines through the interplay between the five multi-talented instrumentalists.

In addition to their musical contributions, Blue Turtle Seduction is also involved in several environmental and social organizations as well. Known for their involvement and contributions to many non-profit organizations, BTS is committed to making a difference on all levels. Their tour bus has been converted to run on straight vegetable oil and the 13 Floors release is packaged in all sustainable and biodegradable materials, proving BTS as a leader amongst environmentally conscious artists on the road today.

Already making waves, Blue Turtle Seduction has gigantic plans for 2009. Committed to promoting 13 Floors and bringing the BTS vibe to the masses, the hard-working group has plans to hit western states like California, Utah, Nevada and Colorado, and also making their way to Midwestern and Southern regions from Ohio to Oklahoma. Audiences have been magnetized by the BTS sound and their high-energy live performances. Through high-energy entertainment combined with activism and outreach, BTS is music for not only the socially aware but for those looking for a positively great time.
