Personal information

Born on: 05.11.1977

Aaron Turner is a musician, singer, graphic artist, and founder of label Hydra Head Records. He is most widely known for his role as guitarist and vocalist for the post-metal band Isis, while also participating in several other bands and projects such as Old Man Gloom, Lotus Eaters and Split Cranium, a collaboration with Jussi Lehtisalo of Finnish band Circle who toured with Isis in 2009.

Though raised in New Mexico, Turner moved to the Boston area where he attended school and formed Isis and Hydra Head. In June 2003, Turner moved operations of both the band and label to Los Angeles, California.

In addition to musical projects and Hydra Head, Turner is one of the owners of Vacation Vinyl, an independent record store based in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Inspired by a local comic book store named Secret Headquarters, Turner set up Vacation - named after the 1983 movie - with Mark Thompson, David Ritchie and David Pifer in late February 2009.

In partnership with his wife Faith Coloccia, Turner founded another record label, SIGE, in March 2011. It has gone on to distribute material from his musical collaboration with Coloccia, Mamiffer.
