Stereo Reform, the 80s infused electro-funk project, came into existence at the tail end of the 2000s. Founder and frontman, Neil Turner, put the first generation of the group together in Charleston, SC with a little help from Craigslist and MySpace (Many thanks to Tom and Craig of the interwebs). Initially drawing from Neil’s library of original tunes, Stereo Reform began as a Funk Rock band. SR relocated to Los Angeles and recorded a 10 song LP, Robots of Evolution, at Killingsworth Studios with producer and former Diffuser frontman, Tomas Costanza. The album, which was primarily featured on college and UK radio stations, was only commercially released online, but it served as a building block in the process of searching for the right sound, as well as energizing the band’s first national tour. In 2013 SR released The Future Started Yesterday, recorded and produced by Atlanta’s Grammy Nominated Bravo Ocean Music Group. Neil, with his former songwriting partner, worked more electronic and pop elements into the songs, and it paid off. The album earned SR a Pandora station, licensing deals with 6 television networks, 11 TV shows, as well as Nascar, Chipotle, Leaf TV and more. The award winning music video for the song, Fire, gained the attention of Jeffery Katzenberg’s Youtube Nation and was featured in a 2014 segment with MSNBC’s Jacob Soborroff. Leonard Maltin gave The Future Started Yesterday two thumbs up during the album’s mention on the popular podcast Doug Loves Movies. And really, who can argue with Leonard Maltin? Answer: No one, that’s who. In late 2016, after teaming up with Bravo Ocean Music Group for a second time, Stereo Reform released the single, Kids Like Us. The song introduced fans to SR’s new direction, which more heavily embraced the synth and electronic sounds from the 1980s. In June 2017 SR released a new 3 song EP, PUMP CLASSIC. Carrying the torch from Kids Like Us this EP features a neon pallet of retro sounds and synthesizers.Turner recorded the hook heavy synthpop EP with producer Danny Olguin, of the vapordance duo, Carpoolparty.
