The Young Pixels are Danny and Tricia Turner, a married indie alt-rock duo from the farm.  The pair switch equally between electric guitar, drums and harmonizing vocals to create a simple rock 'n roll sound that is both gritty and melodic. "Cool, heart-tugging crunchy guitar-based indie rock...think Neil Young and Pixies."-(Grant Lawrence, CBC Radio 3 host, CBC Searchlight.)

The Pixels' latest EP, "Fever of Becoming" (released April 2018) is an introspective offering for the truth-seeker, thinker and dreamer. It explores themes of identity, worth, purpose, belonging and ambition. It's the story of the human desire to move toward the dream that calls, the limitations we all must face, and who we become along the way. For the Turners, it's the challenge to balance artistic yearnings with family life and responsibilities. Fever of Becoming went to number one on the University of Manitoba radio charts Summer 2018.

The band was formed shortly after the birth of their first child 10 years ago. Since then, the duo has released 3 albums and 2 EP's, and played venues and Festivals across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Their songs have recieved national radio play on CBC Radio One and college radio and been featured in a short film.

In addition to making music, the couple farm organic grains and raise cows and chickens with their 3 young sons near Kenton, Manitoba.
