    The Turning got its start when, after several years of playing worship music in their home churches, Chattanooga, TN residents Matt Warren, Jeff Goff, and Jeremy Little decided to try their hand at modern rock. The three set to work creating bass/drum/electric guitar tracks that were musically gripping, and the songs they crafted would make perfect sense alongside everything from Delirious to Foo Fighters to Switchfoot. But this rapidly-developing band knew they needed a frontman.

    Enter Jacob McGinnis, an aspiring artist playing coffeehouses near his Middle Tennessee State University campus. With one audition, Jacob, who had been friends with Matt for years, quickly showed that his compelling voice and incisive writing were laden with the perfect pop-rock hooks to provide the band's finishing touches.

    As the years passed, the band, exhausted by their efforts to make a living with their music, nearly reached its own demise. "The band had a state of the union meeting, and we determined it was either time to give up or get serious. After some prayer and discussion, we decided to go all in and move to Nashville. Around this time, I was watching some extras on the Lord Of The Rings DVDs. One of the producers was talking about Tolkien's story-telling methods, and he said that Tolkien always thought that it wasn't the catastrophe that made the story, but the moment just after the catastrophe. Everybody's life will experience some meltdown, but it's what you do the moment after that determines the outcome. And that's really the story of our band -- we made the decision to stick with it even though we were all ready to give up. And that turning moment really has made all the difference."

    After re-locating to Nashville, The Turning committed 110 percent to writing, recording, touring, and making the most of their collective musical talents. The resulting album, 2006's Learning To Lose on RKT Records, highlighted the lessons this band had learned about the critical moments in every person's journey and the importance of not letting fear or circumstances hold us back on the path.
